The Lonesome Death of Elijah McClain
A Broadside from The Co-Conspirators
On August 29th 2019, police in Aurora, Colorado, stopped 23-year-old Elijah McClain as he was returning home from picking up an iced-tea for his brother.
There had been a report of a “suspicious person” in a ski mask. When officers confronted McClain — a very slight man of 5’ 6” and approximately 135 lbs — they claimed he resisted arrest. He was unarmed and had committed no crime.
The officers tackled McClain to the ground, put him in a carotid hold, cutting off oxygen to his brain. They then called first responders, who injected McClain with 500 milligrams of ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic.
He had a heart attack on the way to the hospital, and died days later, after being declared brain dead. Autopsy photos showed extensive bruising to his body, indicating use of excessive force.
The officers involved were cleared of any wrong-doing.
