*The New York Times, as a part of their Op-Doc series, has released “Verbatim: The Ferguson Case,” which reenacts the legal transcript of testimonies in the shooting of unarmed Ferguson, Missouri native Michael Brown by white police officer Darren Wilson.

In dramatic fashion, the video juxtaposes Wilson and witness Dorian Johnson’s testimonies, which show clear discrepancies. None of the words have been edited, but some comments were condensed to allow for the 16-minute video.

“Orange is the New Black” actress Uzo Aduba is shown questioning both of the witnesses.

Watch below, via the New York Times.
