MILWAUKEE- The Milwaukee County medical examiner is explaining why he changed the cause of death of Derek Williams from natural causes to homicide.
There was a cracked hyoid bone in Williams' neck that was revealed during the autopsy. Such injuries result in about one-third of fatal strangulations and are caused by extreme force.
In the video, as Williams begs for help, one of the officers says, "You're breathing fine," and "Stop messing around." Williams struggles to breathe for 7 minutes 45 seconds, then slumps over, unconscious.
An officer checks his pulse several times, props him up in the seat and walks to a nearby supervisor's car. Finding no one there, the officer returns, pulls Williams out of the squad car and starts CPR as a different officer calls for medical assistance. At least three minutes pass between the time Williams loses consciousness and the time the officer takes Williams out of the car. Police and paramedics continue CPR for more than 45 minutes before Williams is declared dead.
"This is a group of rogue officers within our agency who I would characterize as brutal and abusive," .
MILWAUKEE- A man savagely beaten by Milwaukee police is breaking his silence.
Murder? That implies that the cops meant to kill Brown.
He then revised his ruling from natural death to homicide.

Well this is just sick. Why wouldn't they call an ambulance to someone that is clearly having severe breathing problems? Then once he becomes unconscious wait 3 minutes to perform CPR? The cops need to be charged with murder.
