The family of a Florida man run over by police has released the video of his death in an attempt to start an independent investigation.

Marlon Brown, 38, of DeLand, was killed when a patrol car ran him over on May 8. He was reportedly running from police after he was pulled over for not wearing a seatbelt, ABC News reports. In the video released this week, officer James Harris gets out of the patrol car and tells another responding officer, “I think he’s underneath the f–king car.”

Last week, a grand jury found that there wasn’t enough evidence to criminally prosecute Harris. With the release of the video, Brown’s family hopes to bring Harris to court.

“My children, Marlon’s family — we’re very disappointed,” the victim’s ex-wife, Krystal Brown, told the New York Daily News on Wednesday. “We feel very betrayed by the criminal justice system.”

The clip, recorded on a dashboard camera in the patrol car, shows Brown running from the vehicle in thick brush. He appears to slip. Before he can get back up, Harris’ vehicle runs him down.

Harris was fired from his job shortly after the incident, the Sun Sentinel reports.

Browns family believes that the evidence shown to the grand jury wasn’t accurate. An autopsy reportedly shown to them stated that Brown wasn’t struck, but died of injuries sustained from being run over after he fell down. The Brown family attorney now says that Harris was driving with “such velocity” that he could not have stopped before hitting the victim.

Brown had been arrested more than two dozen times over the past 20 years and served jail time for drug possession, according to ABC News.

DeLand police are conducting an internal review after the release of the video, CNN reports.

    it takes a “special” sort of individual to become a “police officer”, opposed to what they were many many decades ago, which were “public servants”…the “public servant” mentality no longer reigns within the police force (force? really?? smh), it is the complete opposite…and there are many many zombies walking around in uniforms to prove it.

    once again, no man has the right to have authority over the other….it NEVER works out right, and theres a reason for that -_-.

    Well now Florida and Texas are running neck and neck as the most criminal and militant abusive police states with the highest lack of police officer morality.

    It seems every day we are witnessing more and more unacceptable activity by “public servants”.

    Get involved with your local authorities and remind them of whom they work for. Become active in your local jurisdiction and meet the police while it is still “safe” to do so. Let them know daily that you are paying attention and hold them to task.
