    Victims family releases graphic video of his death

    (CNN) -- The family of a Florida man has released video of his death, hoping to get criminal charges filed against the police officer who ran him over.
    On May 8, Marlon Brown was being chased by DeLand police because they allegedly saw that he was not wearing a seatbelt. At a dead-end road, Brown stopped his car and started running.
    One of the police cars hit and ran him over, its dashcam video recording the entire incident.
    Last week, a grand jury decided not to indict officer James Harris on a criminal charge of vehicular manslaughter. That's when the family decided to go public, and release the video.
    "We knew it wasn't going to be an easy video to watch," says Krystal Brown the ex-wife and mother of Brown's children, "but in order to obtain justice, and that's what we're looking for, we knew it was something that we had to do."

    Justice, the family says, would be criminal charges against Harris for killing Marlon Brown. Harris, who has been fired as a result of the incident, could not be reached for comment.

    Hard to say considering CNN left out the moments before impact. If the driver was attempting to stop, and skidded over him, then it could be accidental. My guess is the grand jury viewed the unedited footage and thought the same.

    Strange seeking a vehicular homicide charge. If you read the statute, its clearly not intended for police pursuit. If thats the case, then every cop that chases would be subject to reckless driving charges.

    Maybe the guy should have stopped and took his $25 seatbelt fine instead of running and putting everyone's life in danger including the cops.

    I've seen the unedited footage of the tape, he most certainly did NOT break. He aimed his car straight for the man, going around the other police vehicle which was doing the right thing and maintained his speed through impact and stopped on top of him. And he was fired for it. I've sat on a grand jury. They are rubber stamps for the prosecution.

    Personally, I don't think it matters if it was accidental. If he was using his vehicle to chase someone who is on foot and is unable to keep control of it, he's responsible for what happens as a result.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    That is just mean and heartless. (sarcasm)
    See he was a NON violent criminal. Out side of the fact that he was willing to probably run down anyone that tried to stop is escape from police. For a seat belt fine. Which is I think $125.00 now.
    The lives of your family to that man was worth $125.00, and he was willing to kill them for it.
    Now his family will be millionaires thanks to the state of Florida.

    Running away on foot doesn't endanger anyone else's life unless you run into traffic.

    Which is why the other officers patrol car stopped and he began to peruse him on foot the moment the suspect took to foot. That was proper procedure.
