“Help!” and “I can’t breathe,” —Johnnie Rush, Video is released, how white police officers choked Johnie Rush to death

 

According to washington post

 

“Johnnie Rush was trying to get home from a long shift at the Cracker Barrel.

Then he got stopped for jaywalking — an encounter with the police department in Asheville, N.C., that ultimately left Rush with a bloodied face after an officer punched him multiple times, used a stun gun on him and put him in a chokehold on the ground.

On Monday, the city of Asheville released nine videos from the officers’ body-worn cameras showing the incident from various angles while Rush screamed, “Help!” and “I can’t breathe,” echoing the cry of Eric Garner, an African American who died in 2014 after a white New York City police officer put him in an apparent chokehold during an arrest.
