By Abigail Fridmann SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) —The investigation into the Shaolin Moore video has come to an end. The officers involved are facing disciplinary ramifications — not from their actions seen in the video, but instead for what they said during the arrest.
After a two-week investigation of body camera footage and cell phone video, Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner announced the officers were following basic protocol.
“Once Mr. Moore repeatedly refused a lawful order to exit the vehicle, the officers acted within their training and within policy and within the law, to get him into handcuffs,” said Buckner.
“The struggle continued only as Mr. Moore refused to give up his hands with handcuffs.”
Buckner also encouraged all those in the community to follow instructions given by officers.
“You should not reach about the vehicle. Do not give the officer any reason to believe you are doing anything sinister.”
