This is such a common theme for us black folks. SMMFH!
An Oklahoma inmate who died in his jail cell was pinned to the ground, choked by jail staff and then handcuffed as he lay motionless on the floor, alarming new video shows.
The Caddo County District Attorney’s office, investigating 41-year-old Darius Robinson’s death, have released surveillance video that reveals the moments when the man was put in a chokehold and killed after jail staff crushed his windpipe.
No charges have been brought against the officers involved.
“In this hour, justice has not been reached. The jailer’s not supposed to be the executioner,” an attorney for the Robinson family, Malik Shabbaz, said in a news conference.
Robinson was being held at the Caddo County jail for failure to pay child support and became agitated as he experienced a withdrawal from Xanax, attorneys said.
