An allegation of brutality is being made against the Stockton Police Department, but the accuser is well known at Stockton City Hall.

Former Stockton City Councilman Ralph White says he has video of the fatal Feb. 9, police shooting  of Donald Haynes.  

At Tuesday night's council meeting he said officers in that shooting are guilty of police brutality.  

Police say Haynes confronted the officers with a bayonet during a traffic stop and left them with no choice but shoot.

The Stockton Record says White plans to hold a news conference Wednesday morning to talk about that incident.  

He claims officers were influenced by a domestic violence call involving Haynes and his wife.  

An internal police investigation is being conducted.
