Here we are again. A video is surfacing of a man named Lionel Morris being murdered by police officers! Yup. We even had a cover up, this happened months ago. No one heard about it! Until now.
The original post by Shaun King on Facebook reads:
While the nation was reeling from the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and George Floyd – police and prosecutors in Conway, Arkansas had a secret.
In February, before all of these cases, they murdered a man named Lionel Morris JUST LIKE they did to George Floyd.
And just released the video now. Accused of stealing at the grocery store, they handcuffed his hands behind his back, put him on his stomach, and put all of their weight on him.
Like Eric Garner, like George Floyd, and so many other Black men choked to death by police, you can hear Lionel Morris, over and over again, saying “I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe.”He vomits. One police officer, in the full 45 minute video that I just watched, then STANDS ON TOP OF LIONEL’S BACK. Literally. Lionel is dying. And he tells them he’s dying.
And they continue to put pressure on him. Until he dies.
