Then-police chief James Barber apologized for his officers' actions that night, but refused to release the body cam video which would allow the public an opportunity to see exactly what happened. In fourteen days or less, though, we should know how those police officers behaved that night thanks to FOX 10 News' incessant pursuit of transparency from city officials. Now again, as I said, Byron, I'll be looking into this ruling tonight, and we'll bring you a full report tonight on 'FOX 10 News' at nine on what it says about the release of this body camera video that we've been trying to get a copy of for two years now.

This is the first of two weekends for the event -- just look at some of the catches brought in at five-rivers Delta Center on the Causeway [note: the program appeared to have had a certain video involving some digital graphics and texts of "ALLIGATOR HUNTING" and "ONLY ONE WEEKEND LEFT" by this point] -- now if you want to hunt gators in the future, you have to apply for tags. Some other things to keep in mind: in Alabama you have to hunt for gators in open water-- no bait can be used. You can shine lights on top of the water, and if you see some red eyes, there is a good chance...that it's a gator. You can also use things like harpoons to help you catch the gator. The gator hunt continues next week at sunset Thursday" and a certain reporter (a weather reporter named Matt Barrentine) saying, "Darn, right?" for a certain report related to weather (transcript of part of the report in which those words were used: Matt Barrentime: There are a few tropical waves, now, coming off of Africa, but they don't look like they have much of a chance because the conditions out there just aren't just very good, that the the water temperatures are cooler than they what they usually are due to Saharan dust that came off of Africa and kind of kept the water temperatures down out there -- not up around eighty degrees --  and these storms have to move pretty far west to find better water and when they do they'll run into some upper level winds, so things are going to be struggling down there in the tropics. Darn, right? Ha ha. So it's good to see that hopefully it'll keep things quiet for a while as we go into the height of hurricane season here. The longer we can hold onto this, the better off we'll be. So we'll keep things -- we'll keep an eye on things, but it looks pretty good for now.).
