Stellar AP feature reveals that investigation into Ronald Greene’s death got serious only 7 days after Sound Off Louisiana broke the feature on the true nature of that death.

We want to assure our subscribers and casual visitors that we are working on our own original feature entailing an LSP development; however, as most everyone knows, we are very methodical in producing our features.  The one we’re working on now is taking us a while to try and cover all possible bases, but we are working diligently on it.

As a result, for the second time in less than a week, we’re going to have to make this feature a quick post and give all of the credit for its contents to the outstanding reporting skills of AP reporters Jim Mustian and Jake Bleiberg and their phenomenal feature today regarding the final words to LSP’s Internal Affairs Division of the late LSP Trooper Chris Hollingsworth, who has been identified as the trooper most culpable in the death of Ronald Greene on May 10, 2019.

We used their stellar feature and the two media features embedded thereof to produce the following single video to constitute today’s Sound Off Louisiana video, but we want everyone to realize that all of the credit for its contents belongs to Mustian and Bleiberg!  Here is that consolidated video:

The most stunning thing we uncovered from AP’s first-ever release of Hollingsworth’s words provided to LSP’s Internal Affairs (IA) is the fact that LSP never conducted ANY type of formal substantive investigation of what REALLY happened in the Ronald Greene arrest until seven days after we first reported on Greene’s arrest and death on Thursday, September 10, 2020.

The above IA interview was conducted on September 17, 2020 (as stated in the article, 496 days after Greene’s death)!  Then-LSP Col. Kevin Reeves notified Hollingsworth of his intent to terminate him the next day, September 18, 2020.  Hollingsworth would die of a single-car crash only four days later (on September 22, 2022).

If anything, our original title for our initial feature linked above (LSP clouded in secrecy in Greene’s in-custody death) has turned out to be a very obvious understatement.  If we were drafting the headline today with the benefit of 18 months of hindsight, the headline would also most certainly include the phrase “blanketed in corruption!”

We hope to have our own, original LSP feature out early next week; however, as we indicated in our previous feature, we’re swamped with a ton of features we’re trying to gradually roll out.  The task is not easy when there is so much problematic activity transpiring in state and local governmental entities’ operations.
