From: Jacob Silverman

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Texas Public Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

All records and video recordings pertaining to the use of a Remotec Andros Mark V-A1 to deliver a C-4 charge that killed Micah Xavier Johnson, the suspect identified in the killings of five Dallas police officers on the night of July 7, 2016. Please note that I am also requesting any video recorded by the Mark V-A1 robot itself or video of the robot delivering its payload to disable Johnson.

The requested documents will be processed by a journalist and then made available to the general public. This request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if they could be waived, as I believe this request is in the public interest. Otherwise, please inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Jacob Silverman

Do you mean there were physical records that were sent through the mail? If so, I haven't received anything. I did receive electronically the scanned incident reports, but those do not pertain to my initial request for video.

Best,
