MIAMI – Narces Benoit, a witness to the Miami Memorial day police shooting, which claimed the life of Raymond Herisse says police stomped on his cell phone, pulled guns on him and detained him but he still managed to keep the video of the incident, which he sold to CNN.
“When he noticed me recording, one of the officers jumped in the truck, put a pistol to my head,” he said. “My phone was smashed – he stepped on it, handcuffed me.”
“They handled us like we were criminals,” she said. “The officer came over to the driver’s side, on my left, and just put the gun to my head.”
“They took everyone’s phones and smashed them,” she said.
Benoit says the only reason he still has the footage is because it was saved on a tiny memory card, which he removed and hid from the officers, despite being told to hand over his video.
