AP-- New court filings show Louisiana State Police troopers joked in a group text about beating a Black man after a high-speed chase last year, saying the beating would give the man “nightmares for a long time.” The May 2020 arrest of Antonio Harris bears strong resemblance to the State Police pursuit a year earlier that ended in the still-unexplained death of Ronald Greene. Jacob Brown is one of the troopers charged in Harris' beating. He resigned from the State Police on Wednesday. Harris' arrest drew new attention after a monthslong internal investigation into use-of-force incidents
