"Three years ago, Phoenix had its own "I can't breathe" case. But its outcome has so far been very different than that of George Floyd's.

In 2017, Muhammad Abdul Muhaymin Jr. tried to take his dog with him to the bathroom at a city community center in west Phoenix. The police were called, discovered he had a warrant for his arrest, and decided to detain him.

At least four officers got on top of him and held him down. Some put their knees on his neck and head. 

"I can't breathe," Muhaymin is heard saying several times in police body camera footage. When officers eventually got off him, Muhaymin had no pulse, according to comments from officers in the video, and lay in a pool of his own vomit.

He was 43, unarmed and black"

The death of Muhaymin is the subject of a $10 million lawsuit his sister filed in U.S. District Court in Arizona. The lawsuit is against the 10 officers, a city parks and recreation employee and Phoenix. The Phoenix Police needs to be restructured  by better training officers and doing better background checks on officers while giving Muhammad and his family the justice he deserves by putting the murderers who killed him in jail.
