Body cam footage of slain officer - Jordan Sheldon - should not be released.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 25,000!


WBTV Reporter Nick Ochsner filed a petition in Iredell County Superior Court for the release of the footage on Tuesday, May 7, three days after Sheldon was murdered during a routine traffic stop on N.C. 150. The gunman fled the scene, shooting and killing himself inside his apartment.

The Fraternal Order of Police is vowing to fight the news station’s request for the release of Mooresville K9 Officer Jordan Sheldon’s body-cam footage from the night he was shot and killed.

“It serves no purpose except to hurt Officer Sheldon’s family and his law-enforcement family,” said Rodney James, president of the FOP, Iredell County Lodge No. 10. “There’s absolutely no value in releasing it.”

Together, we stand #mooresvillestrong against the release of this footage!

 

Addendum:  05/20/2019 10:50AM - Prior to the scheduled hearing this morning, Nick Ochsner and his attorney submitted a motion for dismissal.  Unfortunately Nick was not the only one requesting the video.  This petition is not limited to one reporter's request.  We stand together against the release of the footage.
