Law & Crime

"I would just first like to say, I want to bring to remembrance that I think that everyone in this room has been taught, that there's always two sides to every story. There's truly one been one side told of this story," Brooks said. "You won't hear me try to argue facts. The fact is this incident was tragic. Very tragic, that's not lost on me.
