    “They're scared 'cause I'm gonna friggin' do something. Because I am capable,” Card said.

    The release of the police body cam video recorded July 16 followed the release of a new detail Thursday by Maine State Police who addressed an independent commission investigating the tragedy: A review of Card's cellphone revealed a note he had written three days before the Oct. 25 shooting in Lewiston in which he said he'd “had enough” and warned he was “trained to hurt people.”

    Army spokesperson Bryce Dubee told The Associated Press on Friday it's cooperating with the independent commission and that eight of Card's fellow reservists have been authorized to testify in their personal capacity at an upcoming meeting. The Army was also conducting its own investigation.
