The protest continues for police brutality in Aurora, Colorado and one of the names that stand out in regards to injustice was the death of Elijah Jovan McClain. Elijah was a 23-year-old African-American Massage Therapist from Aurora, Colorado who was killed during an encounter with police while walking home on August 24, 2019. A 911 caller said he looked “suspicious” while wearing a mask walking down the street. The police tried to apprehended him and even though he resisted arrest, he was not armed. The police placed Elijah in a choke hold during the attempt of arrest. Paramedics was called to administer a sedative drug and on the way to the hospital Elijah went into cardiac arrest. Elijah died a few days later after being declared brain dead and all officers were cleared of any wrong doing.
