Default Sad case / inmate's final struggle caught on video

An inmate's final struggle caught on video; some raising questions about death at West Baton Rouge jail

The final moments of Ervin Leon Edwards’ life were spent facedown on the floor of the West Baton Rouge Parish Jail.
Dragged into an isolation cell and surrounded by about half a dozen law enforcement officers, Edwards sometimes struggled with them. At other times, he appears to be lying still, according to recently obtained video footage of the incident.

See the video and read the article below:

" Every life you touch, every fear or pain you ease, every loved ones' heart that you ease the burden from is the reason you are here."
