Review: Probe Into Elijah McClain's Death Was 'Flawed'

Police stopped Elijah McClain August 2019, while he was walking home from a convenience store. Police say he resisted arrest before they tackled him and put him in a carotid hold, a controversial technique, designed to produce unconsciousness. First responders injected him with Ketamine. The 23-year-old died of a heart attack on the way to the hospital.
