There is currently outrage in America as yet another black man, Shaheen Mackey dies, following his inability to breathe
While Prison guards are seen holding him down and Tasing him, as he was having seizures
Shaheen Mackey, an inmate held at Luzerne County Correctional Facility in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania,
died in custody in 2018 but footage of his death has just been released and it has caused outrage.
The footage was leaked this week by the husband of a woman who is the administrator of Mackey’s estate.
The video shows that Mackey suffered from an epileptic seizure
only to be met with a brutal response that his family argues caused his death.
Sharing the video to Instagram Attorney Crump called for justice, writing:
“Shaheen Mackey was held at Luzerne County Correctional Facility
for 4 hours when he had a seizure and needed medical attention.
Staff covered his face with a spit mask,
cuffed his hands behind his back, and shackled his feet.
But that wasn’t enough… they then tased him
and held the mask tight against his face,
making it impossible to breathe.
This graphic video shows Shaheen’ Mackey last moments
with at least 10 people watching him die.
And by the time officers realize he’s dead,
it’s already too late… Absolutely sickening.”
