Santana, the man who shot the video, is interviewed by NBC News‘ Lester Holt:
I thought about his position, their situation … If I were to have a family member that would happen [to], I would like to know the truth.
In another Interview on MSNBC’s All In with Chris Hayes, Santana also says:
I felt that my life, with this information, might be in danger. I thought about erasing the video and just getting out of the community, you know Charleston, and living some place else. I knew this cop didn’t do the right thing.
