AUSTIN, Texas - I'ts been three months since Michael Ramos was shot and killed in an officer-involved shooting in Southeast Austin. Since then, Michael's mom Brenda Ramos says she’s seen no movement in his case. In fact, she says its just been delay after delay.
Earlier this week, Travis County District Attorney Margret Moore announced she will not be presenting Mike Ramos’s case next month. Moore says she will leave the job to the next elected DA. This comes after she lost her seat in the Democratic runoff.
Brenda Ramos says she is disappointed but would rather a new DA handle her son’s case.
Austin police also delayed the release of officer bodycam footage from the night Mike Ramos was killed about a month ago. Brenda says she also does not approve of the delay, claiming she’s seen the footage and wants it to be released.
“I'll never forget the face he made when he was confused. That’s what staying on my mind and I feel him and that hurts. That’s a part of me,” said Brenda.
This mother says she will never stop fighting for her son. No matter how long it takes.
“There’s other ways. I could’ve still had my baby here and it’s like, well, Officer Taylor you still have family and they can see you. I don’t have my son and there’s a difference,” said Brenda.
Brenda hopes to get a bill passed in her son's name that will force officials to investigate officer-involved shootings immediately so family and friends aren't stuck waiting like she is now.
The Ramos family was invited to see the bodycam footage for a second time before it is released to the public. Brenda says she couldn't watch it again, but other family members tell FOX 7 that it will be released to the public Monday.
