A Filipino-American veteran named Angelo Quinto allegedly died after police knelt on his neck during his arrest.
Last year, Angelo’s family called on the police to assist them with a mental health-related incident involving the US Navy veteran.
After being detained, he lost consciousness and was rushed to a nearby hospital. But unfortunately, he passed away after three days.
According to the Quinto family who witnessed the arrest, a police officer kneeled on him while being handcuffed.
The mother of Angelo witnessed the incident and said Angelo was pleading for his life when the incident took place.
Meanwhile, the family’s lawyer- civil rights attorney John Burris, released a cellphone video of the said incident.
