he did not hurt anyone. it is unfair that i have two kids by him, that will never know him. never. my baby asks about him. >> i have seen the video again today. i think joseph mensa should come clean. i think he knows he killed my son. my son. my son was not doing anything. he never picked up a weapon. and now he's going free. it's disgusting that this man gets to walk the earth, and my son is dead. >> did the video offer any more clarity to you today? >> no. from day one when i saw it, i
4:25 pm
before the enhancement came out, i said that he never lunged for the gun or touch the gun. his hands were up.when we buried him , his nose was broken. he hit the steering wheel pretty hard. i've been saying this from day one. he never touched anything. he never went that way. the video is nothing, i've been saying it since day one. >> and the video is provided by the fbi we had the opportunity to say. that it was not any different. the state provided video that was enhanced. this is video from the police officer squad car facing jay anderson's vehicle. it is from one windshield into the second when chilled depicting mr. anderson -- windshield depicting mr. anderson. it is pretty clear from what i've been able to see and
4:26 pm
>> i'm very disappointed. we asked questions today. some of the things they were saying, it was like they didn't even care. the only thing they want -- they justified it by his hands going down. if that's what we have for our police officers out here, and the district attorney said here, it said. -- it's sad. >> attorney will be looking at this. can you expand on that? >> the way it normally works, 3 wait for the local jurisdiction to make a decision. although they may monitor, they will not get any of the investigative materials. they want to anything actively as far as investigation until the district attorney's office makes the decision. that was the reason i contacted
4:27 pm
expedite the process. they will contact the district attorney's office, they will get their investigative materials, and decide what should be done from a further investigation standpoint. they are the agency that makes the criminal charging decision. just like the district attorney's office, the u.s. attorney's office and department of justice will utilize the fbi and their investigative agency to determine what else needs to be done, if anything, you're what the investigative materials are they will review it and make a determination. that is as to whether or not there are federal criminal civil rights charges that will be filed against the officer. >> do you feel like this was timed in any way, going into the holiday season, colder weather, to avoid demonstrations or anything like that? >> i do. even thursday, they knew their decision on thursday. we had a meeting set up already
4:28 pm
to have the weekend to do anything. >> how does that make you feel? >> it makes me feel like i felt from the beginning, that these people don't care about anybody's life. that's how i feel. they just care. >> i will tell you, when the meeting was scheduled less thursday for us to look at the fbi video,, i got a subsequent request that the meeting be asked if he could be there. we did not know if a decision would be made today. we knew that he was going to be available from the email, so he would be available for questioning and answers. but obviously, you heard what linda feels, and that is certainly her belief. >> i noticed jay anderson senior
4:29 pm
planning to do? >> from the family's standpoint, other than having me involved and trying to get materials, we will cooperate, the family will clip free, and hopefully meet attorney's office department of justice. they can tell you themselves, they want there to be the ongoing criminal investigation. from an accountability standpoint, they want ee charged criminally, whether it be in state court or federal court. that's what they are looking for. that's the accountability they want. the decision will be made after that as far as what proceeds. > does does the family want any action involved as far as marching or demonstrating?
4:30 pm
involved. i think the family -- i speak with the family daily. i visit and sit down almost daily. we will continue. there's no stopping. >> we must also remember that in this case, the gun was removed. there were things done that are very suspect. even in terms of being out the at the end of the day, they don't care whether his hands were up. we don't know. that officer, i will maintain this, he is not consistent. it is not consistent with what he gave. it was inconsistent with what he
4:31 pm
>> one thing i want to make clear. i'm not trying to speak for the family. they are devastated by the decision that was made today. as we have seen in other cases, we don't want this community or others to do anything from a violent standpoint. we don't want to see what happened in sherman park happen again. there was a lot of frustration. sure the family agrees, we do not want there to be any type of actions like that. civil disobedience we understand. people are frustrated, people have a right to demonstrate, a right under the constitution to express their opinions. we want to make sure that nothing happens in any way that would be violent or cause those kinds of problems.
4:32 pm
when you watch the video, did you realize -- [indiscernible] >> i seen the video over and over again. it really won't make a difference. it's just to let everybody else see what i've seen. at shot. i'm reliving that day with that video for the rest of my life. it really won't make a difference. i want everybody to see it, that he did nothing wrong. his hands were up.
4:33 pm
mother lives in wauwatosa. we talked about this over and over again. where does it end? two victims in 11 months? this officer is dangerous, period. not just because what he did but the manner in which he did it. when you watch how cold and callous he is on the situation, he is completely cool. like nothing happened. his mannerisms are not shocked or shook up. he was just like, no big deal.
4:34 pm
the district attorney's office they have no objection. i'm sure the attorney's office feels the same way. wauwatosa has indicated once the district attorney's office has made a decision they will release it. i will stand by their word. it has been a long time. around the country this is become a big issue. many other jurisdictions have made a decision that this video sh it is one part of the investigation but i think it is important for the public to see it. or the news media to have it, the family to know that people have had an opportunity to draw their conclusions. we think it's very important. we ask that wauwatosa would agree to release it. we hope they do not number of additional months. >> do you think there's any reason why they should not be releasing the video during that
4:35 pm
away. any other questions? otherwise, thank you. >> this is been cbs 58 live coverage from the press conference of the family of j anderson as the da makes a decision not to charge the wauwatosa police officer who shot and killed anderson. >> we are going to hear from the wauwatosa police depart. news conference at 5:00. we will bring you that it is entirely as well. >> stay with us as we continue to follow this breaking news story. we will have complete coverage and reaction as it comes into our newsroom on the air and online at cbs we will be right back.
