Video Released:

Keaton Otis 21 Seconds - Shot 23 times 

by the police on May 12 2010

A recent (re)release of cell phone video footage that shows the police shooting Keaton Otis, is 21 seconds long "with sub-text and a stopwatch added" to the top of the screen
The video stops at 21 seconds.

What you see (and hear) in those 21 seconds is best explained in these words.
"This is the truth, this is what happened. In these 21 seconds these are the last words a father heard from his son, who was abiding by the police orders" ~ Quote by Frederick Bryant - Keaton Otis Father

The sub-text added to the screen by Fred Bryant, who is Keaton's father, was re-released with no alterations to the audio or video file. It is posted below.
As people take the time to look & listen to these 21 seconds, it begs the obvious question; what is really going on, what really happened?

The released 21 second video out take is identical [other than the sub-text and stopwatch] to the video that was given to police and the press in 2010. Keaton Otis was shot in Portland Oregon by the Portland Police [Gang Task Force Unit] on May 12, 2010

Stop and reflect,
this is 21 seconds,
he was 25 years old,
he was shot 23 times.


  1. Police are saying the audio track in this video was altered. I understand it was not; that only time code and text were laid upon the video file taken from the cell phone. Is this true?

    1. the audio was not altered - you are correct about the time code and text being the only addition to the original file
