Rev. Al Sharpton delivered a eulogy at Andrew Brown Jr.'s invitation-only funeral on Monday at Fountain of Life Church in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Brown, a 42-year-old Black man, was killed by police who were executing search and arrest warrants on felony drug charges at his home last month. An investigation into Brown's death is ongoing, but authorities have not yet released body camera footage of the incident to the public (it would require a court order to do so). "Release the whole tape and let folks see what happened to Andrew Brown," Sharpton said. "If you've got nothing to hide then what are you hiding? All we want is justice." Sharpton lamented the numerous incidents of police violence that caused the death of Black Americans in the last year.
