Police kill another African-American person in the United States. This time, the murder has occurred in the town of Canton, Ohio, when several police officers murdered a man named Frank Tyson on April 18, but the video of the murder has just come to light. One of the murderers recorded what happened with a camera in police dress.

Tyson is an Ohio police officer who has been harassed for escaping a traffic accident. When I was in a bar, they walked inside and threw it upside down. "They're trying to kill me! Tyson screamed when the agents pushed and threw hard. Once on the ground, one of the agents tightens the neck with the knee.

They were on the ground for 8 minutes, and one of the cops drowned for at least half a minute with his knee, even though Tyson insisted on "I can't breathe." Meanwhile, agents engaged in jokes with the passing people and recorded their portfolio.

From a moment on, Tyson does not answer. When trying to take his pulse and realize he didn't have it, the police tried to recover it in some way. As the camera received, 5 minutes after the detainee said "I can't breathe," one officer asked one of the police if Tyson was "reassured." "He's still dead," the agent replied.

After trying to recover, Tyson was hospitalized. He died there, less than an hour after his transfer. He was 53 years old. At the moment, two of the murderers have been temporarily withdrawn from their police stations. They say they are investigating what happened.

More than 1,000 deaths

The results of a study by The Associated Press were published last March. According to this, in the last decade, the United States Police has killed at least 1,000 people in subcontracting interventions. In all these killings, the police used "means that didn't want to be deadly," as The Associated Press calls the detainees upside down on the ground.
