23-year-old Elijah McClain was the closest thing on earth to an angel. He was an introvert that loved animals and would go to an animal shelter and play the violin for them. He also loved dancing. He was well mannered and always had a motto of "Gratitude and Respect". He would slightly bow in respect to people when he's addressing them. He was the epitome of pure. His story is the most heart-wrenching I've heard and as a society we must stand up against this inhumanity and give Elijah a voice. He deserves justice. We cannot be complacent and let this happen ever again. 

On August 24th, 2019, he was walking home from a local convenience store wearing a ski mask as he was anemic. As he walked along happily listening to music and dancing, the Aurora Police Department inexplicably received a call of a "suspicious man". This call resulted in Elijah's senseless death at the hands of the Aurora Police Department. This is the same police department that gently arrested mass murderer James Holmes after he had just killed 12 people and wounded dozens

Elijah was laying on the ground crying out, saying that he’s just different, giving them his name, he’s saying that he doesn’t fight, that he’s a vegetarian, that he doesn’t kill flies, he doesn’t judge people, all the while officers stood around ignoring his pleas and did nothing to help. In fact they went as far as mocked him

Paramedics then came in and injected him with a massive dose of ketamine. These are people entrusted with saving lives and they gave him a dose that was well over twice that of someone of his size. There was absolutely no reason for them to have injected him as he was handcuffed on the ground while being pressed down by officers, each of whom significantly outweighed him (he weighed 140 lbs). At the time he was injected he was not fighting and was subdued. These paramedics are just as culpable as the police officers in his death.

Sign this petition to demand that these medics are immediately taken off the streets and that they're also criminally investigated by the Special Prosecutor.
