Rep. Lisa McClain (R-Mich.), who sits on the House Armed Services Committee, said Pelosi needed to explain why troops were being kept in the nation’s capital when the threat from last month’s deadly siege had subsided. “Myself and several of my colleagues have asked Nancy Pelosi for a briefing as to why do we need these troops here, and we have received zero information, zero,” McClain said Monday on “Fox & Friends.” “It’s amazing...
    AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) — The mother of Elijah McClain says her son was “erased from existence.” Sheneen McClain sat down with John Dickerson on “60 Minutes.” It was part of a CBS investigation into a life-threatening syndrome called “excited delirium.” Victims are said to exhibit wild behavior and extreme strength. It’s widely used by police and paramedics to justify injecting someone with ketamine. A 2018 review of studies and articles found excited delirium was associated with more than 10% of deaths in police custody. Elijah McClain was injected with ketamine after being stopped by police in Aurora in 2019. Elijah McClain (credit: CBS) Elijah Mcclain’s police stop was caught on camera.

    Denver has a lot to reckon with — gentrification, the political divide, racism, sexism and more — and that's exactly what the group Soul Stories is all about, says Creative Director Shelsea Ochoa. Through community gatherings, podcasts and large-scale performances, the organization tackles hard topics and works toward community healing. Now a year into the project, the group just released a podcast hosted by founder Danny Mazur and produced by Ochoa and former Westword staff writer and The Syndicate Podcast host Chris Walker; the show looks into the death of Elijah McClain, the 23-year-old massage therapist and violinist who died after a violent encounter with the Aurora Police Department in August 2019. Westword caught up with Ochoa to find out more about the podcast, which comes out today, October 16.  Related Stories Play It Forward: Alex Blocker Is Making Music for a Better World Lares Feliciano Mourns Victims of Police Violence in...
    Big Days of Our Lives casting news was confirmed on Tuesday afternoon and this tidbit has fans buzzing. Melissa Reeves is out, and Cady McClain is stepping in to play the role of Jennifer Horton. This is said to be a temporary shift, but it sounds as if it may continue for a while. This Days of Our Lives casting change originally sounded like some wild bit of gossip that seemed unlikely. However, as Daytime Confidential reported on Tuesday, this one is the real deal. Apparently, the decision came from Reeves and was due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Reeves lives in Tennessee with her husband Scott, another soap veteran, and their extended family. Apparently, she felt that traveling between Tennessee and California to film Days of Our Lives was too risky. She is staying back home, and McClain is taking over as Jennifer. While it is not yet known...
    (CNN)Elijah McKnight admits he was drunk. The 25-year-old says he'd had a fifth of Jim Beam with a buddy before passing out on his way home on a sidewalk just outside Aurora, Colorado. That is where sheriff's deputies found him.They nudged him awake and the conversation was calm for the first several minutes. Deputies told him they were just checking to see if he was all right. But the encounter ended with McKnight on life support after being injected with a high dose of a drug called ketamine. "I was out cold for three days on life support," he said. "My family didn't know where I was."When McKnight finally woke up in an Aurora hospital, he couldn't believe what he was seeing on the news. His eyes widened when he saw a story about another young black man named Elijah. Elijah McClain was in a coma and near death after...
    A planned August 23 event to honor the late Elijah McClain has been canceled at the request of his mother, Sheneen McClain. But in the days before the decision was made to call off what had been dubbed "Elijah's Walk Home," the Aurora Police Department circulated a letter to local businesses near the rally site advising them to consider "hiring security guards, removing expensive merchandise, taking cash to the bank, boarding up windows, door grates and installing window bars." Attorney Mari Newman represents the family in a lawsuit over McClain's August 2019 death after a violent encounter with Aurora cops, and filed a separate complaint related to a violin tribute to the 23-year-old that was broken up by officers using tear gas. The APD letter regarding the rally "strikes me that it's yet another example of the City of Aurora and the Aurora Police Department putting property ahead of lives," she notes. Granted,...
    AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – Changes at the Aurora Police Department are coming but it’s uncertain if more scandals will surface before reforms can take hold, according to at least one community activist. (credit: CBS) “We need to be able to have trust all the way around if we’re going to be able to solve crimes, if we’re going to be able to keep people safe. And more importantly for people to feel like, ‘Hey I live in a city that loves me. I live in a city that respects me,” said Omar Montgomery, the President of the NAACP Aurora Chapter. Montgomery was nearly elected mayor last fall. He’s now been picked to be part of a task force with a dozen other community members to look into what kind of oversight the Aurora Police Department needs. Since the task force was formed last month, scandal has continued to...
    AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) — Aurora Mayor Mike Coffman talked with CBS News to talk about the death of Elijah McClain and the investigations involving Aurora police officers. The most recent investigation involves three officers posing for inappropriate photos — reenacting the chokehold used on McClain before his death. Elijah McClain (credit: CBS) Aurora police say the photos were taken in October 2019. Coffman said he has not seen the photos himself — but confirmed the photos depict the officers reenacting the carotid hold used on McClain. Coffman said he believes there were three factors in McClain’s death: preexisting health conditions, stress of struggle with police, and use of ketamine. He said the use of ketamine is under review. “It’s such a horrific incident,” Coffman said. He said watching the body camera video from the confrontation in August 2019 is “very hard to listen to, very hard to watch.” Coffman said the...
    Yesterday, June 28, marked one month since protests got under way in downtown Denver following the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Since then, the vast majority of demonstrations here over racist policing and related subjects have been peaceful. But a rash of statue toppling over the past week culminated late on June 27 with a fire on the Colorado Capitol grounds that triggered multiple arrests and chastisements from Governor Jared Polis. And earlier that evening, cops busted up a rally in Aurora calling for justice for Elijah McClain, during which tributes to the 23-year-old victim's love of violin were juxtaposed with riot squad tactics that made international headlines. Statues such as one in Washington, D.C., depicting Confederate General Albert Pike have become symbolic targets for protesters nationwide, prompting President Donald Trump to sign an executive order stating in part that "a penalty of up to...
    The three Colorado police officers who were involved in the stop of Elijah McClain, who died after the arrest last year, have been put on non-enforcement duty, according to a report. Aurora Police Officers Nathan Woodyard, Jason Rosenblatt and Randy Roedema were put on duties that don’t require them to interact with the public or take any law enforcement action, according to a Fox report. The men were moved to their new assignments variously over the last two weeks partially because of safety concerns after the department has received threats, an Aurora PD spokesperson said, according to the outlet. After McClain’s death last August, the men were put on a week’s administrative leave over the incident but were not criminally charged. Now, in the wake of the protests over the Minnesota cop-brutality death of George Floyd questions about McClain’s Aug. 24, 2019, death have gotten attention again. On Thursday, Gov....
    ELIJAH McClain's mother Sheenen has called for the cops who were responsible for her son's death to be "held accountable." She claims she feels hopeless despite Colorado Governor Jared Polis reopening the case for investigation. 4 Elijah McClain and a family memberCredit: Reuters Her son died on August 27, 2019 after he was put in a chokehold by authorities and injected with ketamine by paramedics days prior.
