#TACOMA! @TacomaPD is not innocent. On March 3rd, 2020 Manuel Ellis died in police custody as a result of ‘oxygen deprivation and the physical restraint that was used on him.’ He could be heard on the police scanner saying, “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.” #blacklivesmatter pic.twitter.com/eQ5egh3bao

How come the quite clearly bullshit story those officers came up with to hide the murder of #ManuelEllis is presented as fact, @ByMikeBaker? If all the officers did was handcuff & push him to the ground, how was he asphyxiated? Why didn’t you raise those questions in the story? https://t.co/zG0q8laQ9Y pic.twitter.com/WgyE21HHGo
