Police in California on Tuesday released body-cam footage showing officers pinning a man to the ground for more than five minutes during a fatal arrest that his family said should result in murder charges.
Mario Gonzalez, a 26-year-old father and east Oakland resident, stopped breathing after an 19 April encounter with police at a park in the city of Alameda, in the San Francisco Bay Area.
An initial police statement said Gonzalez had a “medical emergency” during an altercation with police after officers tried to arrest him, but his family says he was killed by police who used excessive force.
The officers pulled Bottom's arms behind her back while she shrieked in pain as sirens blared in the background, according to the footage. The force applied by the officers caused Bottom's "shoulder to 'pop,' tearing her rotator cuff and causing severe injury," according to the lawsuit.

Curious why they are asking him for ID when he's on public property and hasn't been suspected of committing a crime.
Oh, right, he had 'stolen' bottles.

There was another incident of a 73 year old senile white woman whose shoulder was also dislocated badly.
The cops are out of control, and they have zero compassion or empathy. There’s been so many incidents that seem like its escalating.

I think we can all agree that one of the villains in this whole tragedy is the busybody neighbor who felt the cops needed to be called on someone standing in a public park because they didn't have a mask on.

People should be outraged with any of the wrongful killings I agree. However, how can you blame black people for other people not bringing attention to the other situations? It's not BLM's fault that other people aren't protesting people not getting due process and being killed instead.
The only outrage I have seen around here is for Ashli Babbitt. No one is stopping anyone from bringing attention to many other people. The more you bring focus to it, the more attention it gets.
If you believe this type of policing is wrong, take a stand against it, otherwise don't complain that only one group gets attention. They noticed it within their communities and there is a very long history of all types of abuse by people in positions of authority against them, so it's an important issue to them personally.
I know reason usually gets ignored here in favor of extremism but just my opinion.
