USC Prof on S.C.: ‘Just Because You Have a Video, Doesn’t Mean You Have a Conviction’
ARMOUR: "The Eric Garner case involved ocular proof. We had video evidence that the world could see and there wasn't an indictment returned. Before him there was the Rodney King case that involved another video of Rodney King being beaten over a long period of time. And again, the Simi Valley jury returned a not guilty verdict, acquitted all those officers. So just because you have a video doesn't mean you have a conviction."
