“Officers never had, nor did they ever attempt to articulate, any reasonable suspicion that McClain may have engaged in, or sought to engage in, any criminal activity.” That’s what I wrote last July about the police killing of Elijah McClain in Aurora. A newly released independent investigation agrees.
Excessive use of force. Inadequate record keeping. Hundreds of thousands of dollars spent on so-called “less lethal” munitions, some of which officers were not properly trained to use.
