Brown further stated that “the memorization it takes to run a major city police department on a normal process day, with all the things that happen, is overwhelming.”

“So this transpiring with all the normal things that are happening in the city is difficult at best,” he continued. “Again, I go back to I’m a person of faith. I believe that I’m here and able to discuss this with you is a testament to God’s grace and his sweet, tender mercies, just to be honest with you.”
