Compensation registered in the United States for the brutal death of an autistic African American by police

Washington. The case, which renewed public attention after the assassination of George Floyd, is the US-registered compensation for the death of an autistic African American who was brutally beaten by police. Colorado city officials have announced a $ 15 million deal with the family, the highest amount agreed in the state for such an event and the highest in the United States, after Minneapolis paid Floyd’s family $ 27 million. Elijah McLean, 23, died in Aurora in 2019, three days after being stopped by some agents and given a powerful anesthetic. He confronted the police who wanted to find out if the young man was armed and said he was anti-social and wanted to respect his limitations. But the agents tied him to the ground and tied him around his neck. He asked law enforcement to stop repeating that he had abused force for 15 minutes, in which McLean was thrown, that he could not breathe and briefly lost consciousness. The rescuer then injected him with 500 mg of ketamine, but three days later he was pronounced dead. Two years later, three officers and two doctors involved in the incident were indicted on 32 charges.
