  • THE SIXTH ORACLE says:

    PLEASE REPORT IT AHOLE!!

  • Marie says:

    I can’t stop crying over this case and I never cry but this broke me.

    • Megan Quinn says:

      I’ve never witnessed such evil. That poor gentle soul didn’t deserve this.

    • Irene Fritsch says:

      He reminds me of my grandson wonderful different ,kind and smart with a diagnosis of Aspergerrs one of the many people put on the autism spectrum.They are the kindest sweet people ever .He was extremely bullied in school but found a place in a group that saw his possibilities and embraced him .

    • Kweli Malloy says:

      Black with Asperger’s, this and Amar Aubrey case made my blood boil…

    • B A says:

      me too, absolutely hurt breaking on too many levels. He was a pure, transparent spirit, you could just tell. He should be alive, enjoying his life

    • Marie says:

      B A I think about that too..how he should be alive enjoying his life. He did not know that walking home from the store that it would be his last night on earth.😢😢😢

  • Keeper of The Lists says:

    Should come for their POST certs, and 2nd A rights. Sooo leo’s have certification to admin injections there? WOW. How are the witch doctors there?

  • Pink Summer says:

    The caller who ever he is, listen to his voice….you know who you are and I hope that whoever you are that you will get someone who will call the police on you for looking suspicious. I hope someone will give you a suspicious look that makes you feel uncomfortable. But don’t worry, you’re not black so your chances of dying are slim. Having black skin without committing a crime means you’re life is not worth it to the police and to some people who view black skin as a threat, I hope you’re uncomfortable and feeling overwhelmed by BLM protesters.

    • drew woods says:

      @B A Hard to ask someone questions if they have headphones concealed by a full face mask .

    • drew woods says:

      @B AIt is his business , however if he wears something that makes him looks suspicious it is also the business of others if they find his attire suspicious. He walked away from police officers ( admittedly he did have headphones on but the police did not know this ) and that is evasion which is a crime .

    • drew woods says:

      @Frank Ursry The identity of the caller is not given so we don’t know what race he was also Elijah had a full face mask on at night so the chances are the caller did not know which race he was either . Very hard to tell someones race from a phone call or when their skin is completely covered . Try and use some common sense . ( oh its reasonable cause not seasonal lol )

    • Frank Ursry says:

      @drew woods Because only white people call the cops on blacks doing absolutely nothing wrong. Example: bird watching in Central Park, grilling burgers and hot dogs in a public park, a new owner inspecting a house he just bought, and on and on, 2 black men wearing masks in Wal-Mart due to Covid. Get the picture now?

    • drew woods says:

      @Frank Ursry If you really believe that black people never call 911 on other black people then you really are not living in the real world . There a hundreds of thousands of 911 calls to the police that originate in predominantly black neighborhoods each year and to suggest those were all white callers is ridiculous . In fact the Wendy’s employee who called the police on Rayshard Brooks was most likely black because it was situated in a black neighborhood . As for the other examples you provide they are without context so I can’t comment on them further because its hard to know whether you made them up or not .

  • 1 says:

    I was really sad about this video, he said . He was heading home .If cops took him to his house
    He still life .
    Cops needs know how to communication with people or need some of control yourself.

    Not just start yelling with people.

    • Frank Ursry says:

      They would not get their “power fix” if they didn’t abuse a black peaceful person.

    • J Groovy says:

      They talk about de-escalation, but it’s often the cops who escalate in the first place. How about some non-escalation.

  • Amy Amy says:

    Sounds like ATB till I come…

  • David Martinez says:

    I doubt I could ever trust cops, it’s just too easy for them to get away with murder.

    • ND G says:

      They sure do especially with the qualified immunity crap.

    • ty max says:

      lol if you start acting like you don’t trust them it’ll make you look suspicious. We all know what would happen next.

    • V S says:

      Can you imagine how many people are dead that the cops unjustifiably have murdered? Lots Cops are a ticking time bomb God forbid you come across one when its about to go off.

    • Tina Grimes says:

      I agree I have 2 mixed boys. All of us have police phobia.

  • Ken Colorado says:

    Has anyone wondered the question: IF THE COPS CAN FORCEFULLY SUBDUE AND INJECT SOMEONE A SEDATIVE- CAN THEY LEGALLY FORCE AND INJECT A VACCINE?

  • Shucks says:

    The murder of this young man was HORRIBLE.

    • drew woods says:

      It would be manslaughter but I doubt even that could be prosecuted to a conviction .

  • Linda Hope says:

    Much love and prayers Brethren Amen God bless Humanity Amen
    RIP Elijah
    May God comfort your loved ones Amen

  • Semmie Elston says:

    The police officers are on paid leave. So they are paid to commit murder to a young black man. This boy was just walking home and the police officers attack p.m. and injected him with some type of solution we really don’t know how

  • Henry Niemi says:

    Think of this; Without slavery, there would be no African Americans.
    Without African Americans, there would not exist Gospel, Soul, Funk, Rap or Jazz music.
    There would be no Eddie Murphy, Samuel L Jackson or Wesley Snipes to make Hollywood movies what they are today.
    More importantly, without slavery, American literature would be missing such great authors as Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes and James Baldwin, just to name few prominent African American authors.
    And finally, think of NBA without African American players. Yeah, it was the black players that made NBA cool.
    So, while slavery was of course evil, it birthed so much good to the global culture. Just think what world would be without Jazz or the comedies of Eddie Murphy…

    • spencer rhymer says:

      Beautiful! This event is so sad and disheartening!

  • Raymond FERRETTI says:

    Tragic terrible and this has to stop !!! He had no weapon, he only way to a hundred pounds, wasn’t hurting anyone, and they pressed him to the ground like a bug !!

  • Mike Harrison says:

    The cops following policies, as in killing a black young kid? 💀

  • TheMysticShrimp says:

    I just want you all to hear her say “they murdered my friend.” Listen to her, listen to her voice Crack and break as she says those word. Just listen to this woman and ask yourself why.

    Those police killed a Human being then took vacation days in Disney World; Merica

    • drew woods says:

      How do you know they took vacation days in Disney World ? Is that true or are you making it up ?

  • Rem Mys says:

    You have to be pretty stupid to run upon this scronnie black kid and ruff him up. Coward demon cop’s everywhere, everywhere!

  • olive20 ugochukwu says:

    I don’t believe what l heard and saw in the video of the arrest of ELIJAH MC CAIN. They injected what? Did the Policemen who injected the MEDICATION attend class on ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY? where was it injected? In the ARTERY OR VEIN OR MUSCLE? You injected medication on someone by FORCE who is STRUGGLING? You sent the POLICEMEN ON PAID LEAVE? WITH COVER UP DOCUMENTATION? They are being paid while FAMILY AND FRIENDS LOST HIM? He was a MEDICAL WORKER OR HEALTHCARE STAFF. Even if they are fired they should be accountable for such actions. POLICING should be REFORMED ALL OVER. UNION OR NO UNION.

  • alondra michaela says:

    Coming for your job? More like your gonna pay for what you did! Praying for justice.you all deserve prison. Life!

  • DISASTER CLIPS says:

    Watch Fox News… Sean Hannity for real News! Let’s save the future of USA!

  • Shuayb Salah says:

    This is some of the worst crimes that a human being can actually commit because of someone’s skin color. It means that you are Indicted before your born!

  • Michele Jackson says:

    So sorry, sir. I am in tears for you for your loss, the world’s loss and the injustice of this. Your son was clearly a good person. I hope everybody tries to be more like him. He made the world a kinder place and they murdered him.

  • AJ ahmed says:

  • Young Lee says:

    How painful his family are! How painful Americans are! 😭😭😭
    Hope and pray for no more discriminating any more 🙏🙏🙏🙏

  • Luisa Hering says:

    This case broke my heart. I don’t even know what to say. He had such a peaceful and loving appearance.

    • B A says:

      He was peaceful and loving, didn’t just look it. Without the artifice you see with too many. Transparent, pure spirit.

  • Terence Johnson says:

    For you from above this morning so real guardians of the Galaxy https://youtu.be/yb6CUUcaWBE

  • Allen Parks says:

    The cause of death was bigotry, racism, and classism.

  • TheShmoo123 says:

    Protect & serve…or…..attack & murder!

  • Robert Gonzalez says:

    my heart hurts so much

  • Chadrach William says:

    What a sweet looking boy. Seems he made others happy with his demeanor. So sad. Someone needs to take responsibility.

  • Fornbjorn says:

    This lad seemed like such a happy and kind person, how could they… What Justice is that….

  • thelewiskidz says:

    But why do you have to sedate him, he’s in cuffs. Now he’s dead. Another day, another murder by the hands of police.

  • citi dsal says:

    RIP. It is brutal and merciless action as usual. How can you say this action is followed protocol when you stop some one walking home and murder him. Is being such cruel one of the qualifications to be hired as a hateful officer. Very very painful.

  • Henry Plce says:

    How are these cops still alive.

  • Bow53 says:

    Separation is the answer

  • david forte says:

    https://youtu.be/NORWxPQz0eI he did a 30 minute interview last night that will mess u up

  • yvette hall says:

    This is sad😥😥😥

  • Michael Wilson says:

    From all accounts, he was a wonderful kid and he deserved more than being killed like an animal. Probably an animal would have gotten more mercy from the killers.

  • Anime JT says:

    😭That’s so sad

  • R Fox says:

    This is heartbreaking Rip Elijah

  • Groove Fretboard says:

    Teach him and others to comply. That instigated it. The ketamine and excessive force was crazy. He had no weapons either.

  • GearrahHereMan says:

    This is why BLACK LIVES MATTER! 10 months and no Cops have been investigated. Police Departments are the Mafia!

    • drew woods says:

      More white people are killed by the cops than blacks each year in the USA . Tony Timpa was killed in similar circumstances to this he was white does his life matter to you as well ?

  • lexaXoper says:

    Когда вы успокоитесь уже? черные расистей чем белые

  • drew woods says:

    Very sad but I can understand why the police would have found him suspicious . The type of mask he was wearing covered the whole face and is exactly the type that someone might use if they were intending to commit a crime .

    • Ghost102 says:

      Nice excuse but there a Muslim’s that wear Burkas that cover their faces and aren’t stopped and tackled by the police!

    • drew woods says:

      @Ghost102 The Burka is used by women who follow a more fundamentalist form of Islam . As such they have to have a chaperone when out in public and its highly unlikely they would be out at night alone if at all . Also this a known form of religious dress so its unlikely to raise suspicion in the way a sky mask a male is wearing at night would do ( especially when such masks are used to often by those who are involved in criminal acts ) . There is also a lot of debate about whether the Burka should be banned and many western countries have done so already . Personally I agree with the banning of any garment that covers the whole of the face in public .

  • Y Hideit says:

    Unfortunately….the justice department will NOT find any civil rights violations…now while Fred Flintstone is the head.

  • K Collier says:

    Against BLM ….BUT my heart goes out to the Dad….it’s gotta be more to this story….BUT black man to black men: comply and fight in court…get the bag 💰….don’t end up in one

  • Yvonne Michaels says:

    Senseless murder!!..This makes me so F*CKING ANGRY!!!🙏to this young mans family..#BLACKLIVESMATTER.

  • melanated soul says:

    We’re coming for your job? WFT, is that all!

  • Mr. Cool Cat says:

  • Henry Savoy says:

    This hit all of us deeply cause we all see a bit of ourselves in him. We’re all Elijah McCain… R.I.P

  • Lizzy says:

    How did they cops followed procedures when they stopped him and killed him for no reason at all. It’s not illegal to wear a ski mask down the street. They all need to held accountable this is ridiculous. R.I.P Elijah🕊🙏🏾

  • m. Mz says:

    we also want justice for la chicanita Vanesa Guillen, who was a soldier in the army serving this country, God bless her sweet soul in Jesus name!

    Why?

    WE ARE ALL EQUAL AMERICA IS KNOWN AS THE LAND OF FREEDOM NOT THE LAND OF HATE ! SAVE THE BLACK PEOPLE

  • fruitofthespirit galatians522kiyee says:

    Police chief needs to step down!!!

  • Sckope B PHlawless Bossin says:

    They killed him and didn’t give af

  • Arounthone says:

    How about the boys who were killed in Seattle the Summer of love. Nobody talks about them.

  • The Kidd says:

    This hurts

  • Unknown Person says:

    Wtf wrong with American law enforcement?!

  • Sean Kessens says:

    But the district attorney said there’s no evidence that the cops caused his death? That DA should go to jail also how dumb can someone be

  • Chan Carter says:

    😢😢😢😢

  • Anthony Downs says:

    Something even worse happened to a young woman named leah baker in jacksonville fl by jso officers a few months back. One of the worst departments if you ask me. They barely mentioned her murder by jso on the news. Justice needs to be served esp when one of the officers has made this his 5th shooting. Shot one kid in the back of the head a couple yrs ago. Officer JC Nobles needs to be off of jso!!!

  • Zavany says:

    Colorado officials (DA Dave Young) declared this killing was A-OK lawful, no mistake, after an anonymous phone 911 call stated THERE HAD BEEN NO CRIME COMMITTED but someone had a discomfort for Elijah’s choice of attire.

  • Prince Smith says:

    Pls give this family the justice they deserve, those officers killed Elijah its common sense to find the officers the reason for his death. How were they not charged? How?

  • Prince Smith says:

    Me: Alexa, How do i get away with murder?
    Alexa: Join the police department and have at it.

    • RR says:

      Sadly true. We know most cops aren’t bad – but why is the SYSTEM protecting the bad ones? SMFH

  • Private Private says:

    🙏 👼💔 # BLM

  • steven price says:

    GOD is not mocked AMER DAYS ARE NUMBERED B/C GOD HAS HIS TIMING HE IS NO ONE TO PLAY WITH EVEN PEOPLE IN THE OCCULT BELIEVES IN KARMA

  • Griffin Fuller says:

    They never even tried to explain why they stopped him. Straight to apprehension, no questions asked. And they wonder why we don’t trust them. Who knows, some lucky soul might have called those cops the “good” ones at one point in time for letting them off with a warning for speeding. We’ve become so complacent in leaving police to their own devices that they’ve become paramilitary organizations, acting outside the letter of the law beyond reproach in the name of authority. It’s bittersweet seeing the country realizing what so many others have seen for decades now, and it makes my blood boil that it took these peoples’ lives to wake America up. Rest in peace to Elijah McClain. Try these murderers in court and get them off the street expeditiously.

  • Tamara G says:

    It is so tragic that someone so innocent was so brutally murdered. My deepest condolences to the family of Elijah.

  • Ice Adonis says:

    The coroner and district attorney are lying

  • LEagle Eye's says:

    Sedatives for What????Evil pure Evil their going to Pay.

  • LEagle Eye's says:

    Rip Young Man

  • Ernestine Todd says:

    Know the truth and the truth will set you free knowledge is power staying positive and prayed up

  • Wolf Slayer says:

    Ignoring any police officers clear and respectfully given instruction to bail up for a moment so they can explain to you that they are only checking you out because someone rang in to say theres a person in an almost full facial mask at night especially is still no excuse to give them lip.
    Telling them you are an introvert or tightening up physically is also zero excuse, all it would’ve taken was a little calm explaining respectfully to the officer/s was all and the guy would’ve been safely home eating his snacks no problemo shortly afterwards.
    Btw, neither the officers nor the medic killed him, it looks like he was as high a kite on his own medication for sure, the sedative given was an tragic innocent unavoidable error that likely clashed very unfortunately with his own self administered medication, the officers aren’t stupid, they know when a smaller guy has the strength of a half a dozen bigger guys wriggling in their midst.

    • JmanShock says:

      If you need links to the stats or the amendment I have talked about I’m happy😀 to give you the links. I talk argue with facts not opinions🤦‍♀️

    • Wolf Slayer says:

      @JmanShock I’m well experienced in dealing with the mentally impaired, I had a few tours and seen first hand the results of their crappy attitude.

    • Wolf Slayer says:

      @JmanShock You need to gently are most carefully reflect about this, I’ve been in the university of hard slam, -I’m fully aware that some have genuine diminished social expectancy etc….I know the actual difference between someone who needs intervention/help either way.

    • JmanShock says:

      Wolf Slayer I appreciateI you service. I have family who has autism and they have like you said “crappy attitude” and probably acted the same way if not worse than Eligah even if their parents tried to prepare them for cop. You could tell in the video he wasn’t all the way there mental buy the way he was yelling random things like “I’m a introvert” in not saying defund the police or join BLM I appreciate the work that cop do but I felt like they could of handle this situation better

    • Wolf Slayer says:

      @JmanShock I very greatly respect you for that for sure, I try not to discriminate when I’m on site the very best I can consistently.
      I’ve become fully real that people with a mental impairment can’t help their behaviour when things get tricky….I’m not not going to arrive mamby pamby nor trigger happy etc….I’ve personally seen nut-cakes doing their thing….it isn’t nice, you can survive it for sure, don’t roll up with a crappy attitude at the time either….cops ARE anti-urban anti-terrorists 99.9

  • faith John says:

    Yes, they are not only what his father said, but pure evil. I can’t explain how i feel about the innocent young man who died begging for his life politely. My condolence to his father mother and, all his family. I can’t imagine how they feel about this!!!

  • David Jones says:

    NBC, is anyone fighting for justice for the 3 year old murdered in the backseat of his father’s car two weekends ago. Or the 13 yr old murdered in her yard?

  • David Jones says:

    I’ve many liberal friends who want to help, but never criticized or corrected my errors. That is what NBC does with BLM protesters. No constructive criticism whatsoever. Much violence from BLM is constantly overlooked or blamed on guns.

  • Nichelle Watson says:

    My heart goes out to the Mosley family. I know this father personally. And he looks so different. Losing a child is devastating. And he looks like he is losing life all In his eyes….much love to u Wayne…RIP ELIJAH…We gone get to the bottom of this shit…u have not passed in vein…WE WANT THE EMT ALSO WHO ADMINISTERED THE DRUG. HE IS GUILT AS WELL

    • Megan Quinn says:

      I watched an interview with his father. You can always tell a person their eyes and his dad is a broken man right now. His son was a sweet, gentle soul. He didn’t deserve what they did to him. He did absolutely nothing. That whole city, from the mayor down, needs to be held accountable!

  • NeW KinG says:

    Children of the LORD be prepared your sould the mark of the beast is coming.
    To enslave your souls.

  • B A says:

    looking ” suspicious” warrants a death sentence? my lord! RIP angel. my heart is heavy and I have shed tears over this heinous execution

  • John Godley says:

    They were following policy, is killing a young black man for doing nothing police policy?
    It is time that the US wakes up to reality. Time after time police are getting away with
    racist murders.

  • Wolf Slayer says:

    The only colour/racial thing I’m noticing here is….thugs and liars hate blue, or military protection colours.

  • DMG2FUN says:

    All he had to do was stop and answer some questions about a 911 call about him. Instead he goes into that racist black anti cop BS. He got what he deserved.
