Another Black Man murder! I can’t Breathe !! He cried! 17 times at the hand of las Vegas Police before he drew his last breath
Byron Williams said ‘I can’t breathe’ 17 times as police restrained him.
The entire world has reacted to George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25 with an officer’s knee on his neck. Floyd’s final moments were captured on video by a bystander.
On Sept. 5, two Las Vegas police officers arrested Williams, 50, who was Black, for riding a bicycle without a safety light. Body camera video released by police showed the officers chasing Williams, holding him on the ground, handcuffed, and kneeling on his back before lifting him upright and dragging him away. Williams repeatedly told officers, “I can’t breathe.”
He said it at least 17 times before he died, according to the police video.
But unlike Floyd’s death that bystanders recorded and release to the world, Las Vegas Police released just part of the video from one of the body cameras; since there were no bystander videos, there were no rallies and no demonstrations. No single charges have been filed against officers connected to the case.
Byron Williams’s death and the zero accountability that followed is an affirmation of what many has long suspected that most of the killing and framing of Black men in American are done in the dark and they barely get any attention.
Afro World News correspondent reached out to the Las Vegas police department, but no response and no reason while those white police officers were never held accountable.
