Police Excuse #2 – “I killed him because he appeared to be on drugs and I feared for my life”

Police know how to game the system. Police know how to get away with murder by providing the right excuse to avoid prosecution for murder.

Too many times police have killed a person and the excuse the police give is “He appeared to be on drugs and I feared for my life.”

Countless police reports are written citing “excited delirium” as the contributing cause of death.

“Excited delirium” is NOT a medical term, but instead an invented, made-up white racist term police use to attempt to justify their beatings and killings of their victims.

In Denver Colorado Elijah McClain was simply walking home from the store when a police officer literally jumped McClain and supervised the murder of McClain.

Elijah was described by police in their reports as experiencing “excited delirium.” Police request paramedics to inject McDaniels with a dose of Keratin, which killed McClain.

Paramedics injected over twice the amount of Keratin recommended for Elijah’s body weight.

Aurora police and paramedics made substantial errors at nearly every stage of their interaction with Elijah McClain.

Aurora detectives tasked with investigating the incident stretched the truth to exonerate the officers involved, an independent investigation found.

Aurora police did not have a legal basis to force McClain to stop walking, to detain him, to frisk him or to use a chokehold on him, according to the investigation commissioned by the city released on Monday.

Paramedics with the city’s fire department failed to properly evaluate McClain — or even attempt to speak to him — before injecting him with a powerful sedative.

And the detectives assigned to scrutinize what happened that night “failed to meaningfully investigate” the incident, the report states.
