Three police officers and two paramedics were charged with 32 counts in connection to the 2019 death of Elijah McClain in police custody.

The parents of Elijah McClain, a slain 23-year-old Black man from Aurora, Colorado, recently filed a lawsuit against the city, the Aurora Police Department, and medical officials, after he was violently detained on August 24, 2019.

Jonathan Smith of the Washington Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs will lead the initiative.

Three officers went to the site of the memorial to take the offensive photo, sending it to one of their colleagues who replied with laughter.
