Prosecutors representing Almeida County Sheriff Deputy Toronto Raptors president Masai Uziri have accused the executive of using the race as a factor in the attack after Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals.
According to Daniel Kaplan of Athletic, Deputy Alan Strickland said in a case filed in court on Tuesday that Uziri had not shown his evidence before the dispute and that the NBA wanted security to be extra vigilant.
As part of the Uziri Counter Suite, Body com footage The incident was released, and although Uziri shines as if it were a card attached to his body, Strickland appears to support the executive’s claim that he was shaken twice.
“The body camera video produced by the plaintiff on July 17, 2020 did not reveal any new information to the defendants,” Strickland Athletic wrote.
“In fact, plaintiffs Alan Strickland’s conduct on the date of this incident is due to the fact that the defendants are now taking advantage of the widespread law enforcement bias and misrepresenting racism and partisanship.”
Mayor John Tory addressed these arguments, and today the footage speaks for itself.
“If they had enough evidence to suggest that all of these videos did not happen the way they said they would, they should now submit that evidence,” Tory commented.
“At this point, I think the video we ‘ve all seen speaks for itself and the Torontonians know better, I would say the Masai Uziri character speaks for itself.”
Uziri was released A statement Just two weeks ago she said: “Last year, in the middle of my team, the Toronto Raptors, this video shows how badly a law enforcement officer who won the first World Championship treated me badly.
“It has been a joyous moment for my organization, for our players, for our city, for our country, and for me personally, given my long career journey in the NBA. Will be seen as unworthy of engagement.
“And, there’s only one controversial reason for that to happen – because I’m black.”
Uziri’s counter-lawsuit came months after Strickland filed a lawsuit against him for medical expenses, wages and other expenses, alleging he suffered serious injuries, resulting in “great mental, physical, emotional and psychological pain and suffering.”
In February, Strickland filed a lawsuit alleging that Uziri had assaulted him and failed to present his evidence, which has now led to a viral confrontation.
