Elijah McClain Petition Prompts New Death Investigation

Via Inside Edition

The death of another Black man in police custody is getting renewed attention after more than two million people petitioned officials to launch a new investigation. Elijah McClain died nearly a year ago in Aurora, Colorado after he was stopped by police while walking home from the store. The 23-year-old, whose family said he was anemic and often felt cold, was wearing a ski mask, which prompted a passerby to call 911. Like many others, he also pleaded “I can’t breathe.”
