    Are any of the police that administer the Ketamine even trained in proper drug dosages based on body weight? I really really doubt that and why are we using narcotics to control people that have already been detained?! Disgusting....

    It's like they voted on handcuffing and choking once the unarmed shootings became too obvious

    Whoever called on this innocent young man should have charges pressed against her for false report! Smh, he wasn't doing a thing wrong!

    I only hope the paranoid individual that phoned in this complaint feels some of the guilt for this poor souls demise.

    Ketamine a powerful horse tranquilliser used by police when they have already subdued anyone by means of excessive force is wrong, not to mention yet another case of racial profiling. Since when do officers get to decide what punishment to dish out on unsuspecting citizens who are simply trying to go about their day? Enough surely has to be enough.

    So very heartbroken that this happened to an innocent young man who just wanted to go home. The police used excessive force in this case. What’s right is right, and what’s wring is wrong, no matter the color of your skin. We are on this Earth to help each other along the way. Why couldn’t they have just questioned him and learned about who he was. My son is an introvert and I can just imagine him being “strong hold”! Rip in peace sweet Elijah!

    I think the community of criminals is fully responsible for giving ski masks a bad rap but it’s definitely a red flag to be sporting one in August.
