Marci Allen started this petition to Governor Jared Polis and

According to Fox31 body cam footage showed a paramedic saying Elijah  McClain was alert and didn’t need to be transported to a hospital.When the deputy asked if paramedics could “ Give him anything “the paramedic said they could give him ketamine”He’ll be sleeping like a baby”.After the initial dose  was given a second dose was also given after consulting with a physician. Ketamine is a powerful tranquilizer mainly used for animals.There needs to be a criminal investigation into the use of ketamine  by the paramedics and physician involved in the death of Elijah McClain The public needs to be able to trust  in the decision making of medical professionals in the field. If someone dies under their watch then a legal investigation needs to occur. In the Elijah McClain case  a determination  of wether Ketamine was even warranted or if this was a careless and deliberate medical decision that could  have caused his death needs to be determined . As a nurse  I know that the death of a patient  needs to be examined to the full extent.Elijah was the  patient of the paramedic and the physician who authorized the second dose of Ketamine. This is a case where the District Attorney  needs to be examining this death  not just the Colorado Public Health Department.
