I heard on the radio there were white and black officers involved; however, I can't substantiate that.

Just from video I saw 3 white officers. It's been reported that the driver of the van was black.

Why does it matter what their race was?

The only party with the 2nd degree murder charge (most serious), Caesar R. Goodson Jr, is African American.

Will be interesting to see how fast interest in this case goes to 0 when he is the only one left for trial.

So what you're saying is that despite the media repeatedly showing the clip of Freddie being dragged into the van by white officers, you still don't know?

You draw conclusion for your sarcasm without having knowledge of situation

The paddy wagon driver does not make the arrest. He is responsible for prisoner xfer. He is the only one with the murder charge. So this is why you don't see him on camera.

He is African American.

3 officers were shown, not six.

It matters because I want to know.

Thanks for the information, so 5 white officers and 1 black? I can't help but wonder if the video had shown 3 black officers instead of white, if it would be all over the news and all of the protestors out marching.
