A startling, 33-minute video shows the officers approaching Kelly, beating him and then seemingly laying on top of him. Throughout the ordeal, he can be heard screaming “help me,” among other pleas. Additionally, more than once, he tells the officers that he cannot breathe (his death certificate rules his death a homicide and proclaims that he died from ”mechanical chest compression with blunt cranial-facial injuries sustained during physical altercation with law enforcement”).
WARNING some people may find this video very disturbing.
Id never heard of this incident until today and found the video very distressing. Im not exactly sure what the guy did wrong in the first place but no one deserves to be treated in this way even if they are homeless. He did lose his temper with the way they were treating him but the police where big strong guys they should have been able to control the situation without beating the hell out of him. Theres no excuse for inflicting some much damage on this guy that he died for his injuries.
