Two [effin] years after a [white] man died in police custody after being detained as a DUI suspect, attorneys for his family have obtained a video showing his last moments as California Highway Patrol officers hold him and forcibly draw his blood as he repeatedly tells them, “I can’t breathe.”

...They tried to keep the video under wraps, arguing it should not be made public. But a federal judge overseeing the civil case ruled earlier this year the family had a right to the video. On Tuesday, its contents were disclosed.

The video is gruesome!

Do think po will wink and nod again when a police station is torched!!!!!?

Oh, yeah. What police station? This poor guy was only white.

    CORRECTIONS & CLARIFICATIONS TO THE ABOVE COMMENTARY:

    1. Edward Bronstein, 38, was taken into custody by California Highway Patrol officers on March 31, 2020, following a traffic stop. Bronstein died less than two months before George Floyd was killed by police in Minneapolis as he, too, repeatedly told officers “I can’t breathe.”

    2. The LA County coroner’s office ruled Bronstein’s cause of death as “acute methamphetamine intoxication during restraint by law enforcement.”

    3. Gov. Gavin Newsom, in September 2021, signed a law barring police from using certain face-down holds that have led to multiple unintended deaths. The law was passed after Bronstein's death and was aimed at expanding on the state’s ban on chokeholds in the wake of Floyd’s murder.

    4. Family members say Bronstein was terrified of needles and believe that’s why he was reluctant to comply with the CHP initially as they tried to take a blood sample. In the video, an officer tells Bronstein they have a court order — an assertion that Carrillo [Bronstein's family attorney] doubts was true.

    An officer tells Bronstein to take a seat for the sample: “This is your last opportunity. Otherwise you’re going face down on the mat and we’re gonna keep on going.”

    5. None of the reports that I've seen on the case indicate that any officer kneeled on Bronstein's neck à la Derek Chauvin.

    Tell me, with a straight, uh, hand?, that you honestly believe that if you switch stories and so what happened to Bronstein happened to Floyd, and vice versa, that there would have been no woke riots over Floyd.

    Tell me! Please!

    Tell you? I will let the facts speak for themselves. Not every death of an African American while in police custody is a cause célèbre. Hundreds of deaths have happened in recent years that you've never heard about. Importantly, not all deaths are due to officer misconduct.

    A study published in The New England Journal of Medicine in 2016 finds there were 222 “legal intervention” deaths in 2013, or cases in which someone was killed by an on-duty law enforcement or other peace officer. The study is based on data from just 17 states, however, and none of the largest states — California, Florida, Illinois, New York, Pennsylvania and Texas — were included.

    According to the paper, nearly everyone killed by on-duty officers in those states that year were male and between the ages of 20 and 54 years old. It finds that black people were most likely to die in police custody.
