Watch: Paul Pelosi assault video released


San Francisco Supreme Court Justice Stephen Murphy has released a body camera video of Paul Pelosi's attack now. If the cops don't move quickly, it could be much worse.


The outlets that sued the records are The Washington Post

Los Angeles Times, Associated Press, Press Democrat, San Francisco Chronicle, Fox News, NBC, ABC, and ABC, as well as CNN and Fox News.



The San Francisco Attorney General's Office attempted to argue that

the release of the video would distort the facts of the case while lawyers for Pelosi's attacker, David Dibaby, argued that the release of the video could "irreparably harm" his right to a fair trial.


If convicted, DePape could face up

20 years for attempted kidnapping and up to 30 years for violence.


He also faces formal charges. According to NBC:

DePape also faces a series of government charges

including attempted murder, burglary of homes, assault with a deadly weapon, abuse of the elderly, false imprisonment of an elder, and threatening a public official and his family.


He has pleaded not guilty to all government charges.



According to the Associated Press:

When media outlets requested copies of such proof

the San Francisco Attorney General's Office refused to release her.

The attack :

  • It happened shortly prior to the 2022 midterm elections
  • sparked intense speculation from the public that
  • led to the spread of false information.


The district attorney's office argued that making the video publicly available would simply encourage people to use it as a means of disseminating false information.



But news agencies argued that it was necessary for prosecutors to publish their evidence publicly that would expose any false information circulating online about the attack.


You don't cancel the public's right of access just because of concerns about conspiracy theories," Burke said.


In the United States

the penalty of murder varies depending on the circumstances of

the case and the case in which the crime was committed.

However :

  • in most states, murder is a capital offence
  • and punishable by life imprisonment or death.
  • The specific sentence for a murder conviction is
  • determined by a judge or jury based on
  • the evidence presented at the trial and the applicable laws of jurisdiction.



In addition to life imprisonment or the death penalty

a person convicted of murder may face other consequences

for instance, the loss of specific civil rights


such as the ability to vote or own a gun

a criminal history, which could make it challenging to

find future employment or housing.


If a life sentence is imposed,

he may also be eligible for parole after serving a certain period of time. In some states, the death penalty is carried out through lethal injections

while in others :

it can be carried out through electrocution, gas chamber

hanging or shooting. The execution of criminals is debatable.


with some people arguing that it

is a necessary tool to protect society

while others believe that it is cruel and inhuman punishment that must be abolished.
