Elijah McClain's Death: Bodycam Arrest in Aurora, CO (HD Audio Quality)
Elijah McClain was unlawfully stopped and arrested in Aurora, CO on August 24, 2019. Police we're called because there was a man walking down the street in a ski mask, something he wore often since he was anemic and often cold. He was assaulted while remaining peaceful. He pleads for his life while being the victim of the excess unnecessary force until he vomits from the pressure on his chest and neck. The cause of death still to this day was revealed as "Undetermined" even though the autopsy shows clear evidence of physical abuse over Elijah's entire body. After Elijah has lost all his energy and is peacefully laying next to his own vomit, the police and EMTs decide to still give him a normal dose of Ketamine. Without knowing anything about his prior physical condition. At some point following this and a long unrecorded ambulance ride that Aurora PD was present for, Elijah went into cardiac arrest. He died in the hospital 3 days later. The police officers involved have never been charged. They are still in the force today. Please help bring justice to Elijah McClain.

"I can't breathe. I have my ID right here. I have my ID. My name is Elija McClain. That's my house. That's all i was doing. I was just going home. I'm an introvert. I'm just different. I'm just different. That's all. That's all I was doing. I'm so sorry. I have no gun. I don't do that stuff. I don't do any fighting. Why we're you checking me? I don't even kill flies! I don't eat meat! And I'm not a vegetarian, I don't judge people who eat meat...Forgive me. All I was trying to do was become better. I will do it. I will do anything. Sacrifice my identity. I'll do it. You all are phenomenal. You are beautiful. And I love you. You can try to forgive me. I am a mood gemini. I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. Owww! That really hurt. You all are very strong. Team work makes the dream work...(crying)..(adjusting to breathe better)..Oh I'm sorry. I wasn't trying to do that. I just can't breathe correctly (proceeds to vomit from the pressure to his chest and neck)." -Elijah McClain
