I wanted to commemorate Elijah McClain on his one year anniversary after his encounter with police.He was a young man, minding his own business, who walked into a local convenience store for a drink, and walked out, was tackled down to the ground by several police officers because he appeared suspicious. Police held him in a carotid position, otherwise known as a chokehold. Not only was he held down but attending medics who were called to the scene injected with ketamine to calm him. This was a recent story that resonated in the hearts of so many. References available at: www.afewbadapplespodcast.com

cameras were police even wearing body cams while attempting to apprehend Elijah. The answer is yes, but something that I want to flag here is that all three officers who responded to the scene had bodycams on, but all three of their cameras fell off during some point at that night. For Mclean family attorney Mari Newman did mention that in an interview and notice how suspicious that was. These body cans should have been firmly affixed to the uniforms and they all fell off. The cut reported that around the 15 minute mark of the body cam footage that was released to the public. It is clear that someone picks up a camera from the grass James it at Elijah or at least in his direction and then just drops it again a few minutes after that, another officer is heard telling that person to leave the camera where it was. And Lance Hernandez from the Denver Channel reported that Mari Newman stated that at one point during the Night one of the officers deliberately tells another officer to obstruct the view of the camera. She said quote so what we see is the officers intentionally made it so that they couldn't be observed tampering with evidence. The district attorney should not only be investigating these officers for a homicide, but they should also be looking at the fact that they were tampering with the evidence by causing their own cameras to fall off and making sure that their own actions weren't caught end. Quote, body Cam footage was not released until three months after the incident in November 2019. It really makes me wonder why it took so long to release that footage to the public After the night, Elijah was apprehended and placed in a chokehold by police. All three officers, Nathan Woodward, Jason Rosenblatt and randy Redeem A were immediately placed on standard administrative leaf, but not too long after that, all three officers were reinstated and back on the B as we have seen in so many stories that I've told. But what is most particularly disturbing about this case is the fact that the District attorney of the case stated that there would be no criminal charges against these officers because there was no evidence of criminal activity, even though their use of force was extremely excessive. Elijah was unarmed. All he did was have a ski mask on which the last time anyone checked is not against the law. In November 2019, Elijah's autopsy report came back inconclusive. According to Lance Hernandez of the Denver Channel, he said the coroner reported that the cause of death could not be determined and that means they could not declare if Elijah's death was an accident or if it was natural death or if it was a homicide due to the police's use of force with the carrot hole. However, the report does state that Elijah had several cuts and bruises on the back of his legs and there were even some hemorrhages in the neck area. Now, if you're wondering about that ketamine dose that was given to him at the scene, could that have played a factor in his death? Well, the autopsy report says, quote, the blood ketamine concentration was at a therapeutic level, but an idiosyncratic drug reaction, an unexpected reaction to a drug, even at a therapeutic level, cannot be ruled out. End, quote in
