Elijah McClain was killed by police after he was put chokehold and given the sedative ketamine. The incident began when someone neighborhood called the police because McClain was walking down with groceries while wearing a mask. McClain reportedly always wore the mask because he was anemic, got cold, and he was an introvert.
Now, a year and a half later, an independent investigation, commissioned by , has found that police had no legal basis McClain that night as he had broken absolutely no law.
According to the Denver Post, the investigation also found that the department’s own investigation conducted by detectives Major Crimes Unit — was deeply flawed — and deliberately steered to exonerate the officers involved.
The detectives ask basic, critical questions of the officers involved in McClain’s death, and instead “the questions frequently appeared designed to elicit specific exonerating ‘magic language’ found in court rulings,” the report states.
“In addition, the report of Crime Unit stretched the record to exonerate the officers present a neutral version of the facts,” the investigators wrote.
“It to imagine persons involved fatal incident being interviewed as these officers were,” the investigators continued.
“The body-worn camera audio, limited video, and Major Crime’s interviews with the officers tell two contrasting stories,” the report states. “The officers’ statements on the scene and in subsequent recorded interviews suggest a violent and relentless struggle. The limited video, audio from the body-worn cameras, reveals Mr. McClain surrounded by officers, all larger than he, crying pain, apologizing, explaining himself, and pleading with the officers.”
The investigation also implicated the EMTs who showed up and injected McClain with ketamine at the request of the officers. blindly following cops’ orders to inject someone with ketamine, EMTs also accurately determine McClain’s weight, the 140-pound innocent man receiving a dose for a 190-pound man.
“Aurora Fire appears accepted the officers’ impression that Mr. McClain had excited delirium without corroborating that impression through meaningful observation or diagnostic examination of Mr. McClain,” the investigators wrote.
McClain’s mother, Shereen McClain, “is relieved that surrounding the death of her son is finally coming to light,” issued by her attorneys, the Post reported.
“The Aurora officials who contributed to Elijah’s death must be immediately terminated,” the statement from the Rathod Mohamedbhai . “Ms. McClain continues to the Elijah’s death. Elijah committed no crime on the day of his death, but are Elijah’s death certainly did.”
At the time of his death, McClain had never gotten as a in his life.
Moments after police approached McClain claiming that he fit of a suspect. They claim that he resisted arrest and needed to be subdued. McClain had committed no crime when police initiated force against him. He was merely walking home from after purchasing some tea.
At the time, police claimed body camera footage showed McClain reaching for a gun, but this was unsubstantiated.
At a after police killed him, Metz told reporters that “Elijah grabbed the grip of an officer’s holstered gun. A struggle ensued to where three body-worn cameras did become dislodged.”
But this was simply not true.
“He contacts vomiting, begging, saying, ‘I can’t breathe.’ the officers says, ‘Don’t move again. If again, I’m calling dog to bite you,'” said Mari Newman, the McClain’s lawyer, completely dismantling the official story.
During the altercation, McClain was placed carotid restraint, that was recently banned by the Aurora . While McClain was restrained, The Aurora was called to the scene him ketamine, sedative. After being choked out and forcibly drugged for committing no crime, McClain went into twice while on the the hospital.
In his words on this planet, McClain heard saying, “I’m an introvert. I’m just different. That’s all. I’m so sorry. no gun. I don’t stuff. I don’t do any fighting. Why are you attacking me? I don’t even kill flies! I don’t eat meat! But I don’t judge people, I don’t judge do eat meat. Forgive me … I’m so sorry.”
He was innocent, successful, and often dark world and police killed him for being different. Then, after they killed him, they went back to the scene of the crime and reenacted it for fun.
