‘I can’t breathe’: Police release video of 2019 deadly arrest

Oklahoma City police this week released body-camera video of a 2019 arrest of an armed black man who died not long after saying repeatedly during the encounter that he couldn't breathe — footage that protesters had recently demanded.
The police footage of Derrick Scott's arrest was released to news media after demonstrators demanded the video in a recent Black Lives Matter protest in front of a city police station.
The demand came amid national uproar over last month's death in Minneapolis of George Floyd, who was not armed and had pleaded that he couldn't breathe as officers restrained him during an arrest. In that case, an officer is seen kneeling on the side of Floyd's neck, and this has moved some police departments around the world to start banning neck restraints.
In the Oklahoma City case, police have said Scott had a gun and ran from officers who approached him, and that all techniques used to restrain him were proper. The officers were cleared of criminal wrongdoing, Oklahoma City police say.

    1. It’s especially bad when you have a 200-pound officer on your neck or back for several minutes.

    1. That’s why we should thank Trump for Trying to get rid of opioids in American!! It’s killing many people not just blacks in America.

    2. FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT OF FAITH What do you mean not just Blacks? Opioids are MAINLY killing Whites! THAT is why he wants to get rid of them. And that’s why opioid-related crimes were decriminalized. If it was mainly affecting Black people, you better believe it would still be criminalized.

    3. Obama’s Ugly White Momma So what you’re saying is we shouldn’t care about all the white people committing suicide or ODing on opioids??? Or does that disregard for life only extend to Black people?

  1. He ran away.
    He had a gun in his pocket.
    He tried to resist when the EMT came.

    I mean…

    1. @Spencer Anderson So you’re mad because the left is woke? That means that you admit the right isn’t. You do know what it means to be woke right? Lmao you literally just referred to both yourself and ther entire right as ignorant, nonprogressive, neanderthals 😂

    2. You saw all that. Miss the part where the officer said I don’t care. You miss the part where they said he was pretending to act unconscious. Okay

    3. Apparently whites can run around with guns on government property but blacks can’t have CC’s

    4. Patrik Liba does that mean you can carry a gun and try to point a gun at anyone in the public on your will.

      That make sick.

  2. Hey, methamphetamines kills and do not give you right to commit crime (From medical doctor in Europe)

    1. So should the Minneapolis Police Chief who FAILED to do anything about Chauvin.

      Did the Chief even try to previously fire him? Transfer him to permanent desk duties?? This needs investigating and it’s all well and good for that Police Chief to give flowery collateral damage speeches AFTER THE FACT.

      Also, why did Democrat Amy Klobuchar previously refuse to prosecute that cop??
      Two system failures right there.

      That aside, people should remember that police are 18.5 times more likely to be murdered or seriously injured than the civilian population. I bet not one person can name a cop who died or was left permanently disabled trying to protect a community.

      Im for purging rotten cops, but most of the 900 thousand go about their job in a profession manner .
      Without pokuce there are no arrests, prosecution, conviction of rapists, murderers, child abusers, home invaders, domestic violence perps, robbets etc., which means NO JUSTICE for VICTIMS.

      A balance must be restored.

    2. @Elmosweed That “beast” met with black groups for years to focus on black issues which led to prison reforms. Of course, no MSM reporting on that.

      Trump also directed funds to public housing , especially NYC after Democrat Bill Deblasio misused allocated housing funds for other things. MSM was silent about that too.

      Trump signed off in an animal anti cruelty Bill, pushed for increased funding for veterans. Again, zero reporting of that.

      Meanwhile, Democrats cheered like they struck gold when they signed off on late term abortion aka infanticide, but Trump who’s against late term terminations, is the beast, gtfoh.

    3. @Elmosweed That’s where people get it wrong, it’s not a Democrat or Republican thing. Both sides are full of scumbags. I just wish people would open there eyes to the real problem. Trust me if there weren’t any black people the poor whites would be getting this treatment. The top 1 percent run this country and until everyone else realize we have power things won’t change.

    1. Half you morons would understand the cop tendency of shooting white people more than blacks: police activity channel more than your beloved Corrupt news network. Bare the nitty gritty you lemmings.

    2. @James Doyle I don’t have any kids and my mother was a feminist and an absent mother.

    1. @nakedshadows so what since when having gun is illegal. It is not like he was pointing the gun on them. Fucking brianless having fun is legal in US. Stop making stupid comments.

    1. @Soshintsu republicans care about Americans, we don’t group everyone into categories based on race. Work hard, love your family, treat people with respect, you’re a Republican.

    2. @Ocasio-Cortez4prez2022 If treating people with respect is a Republican trait, do you consider Trump a Republican?

  3. Well, he was armed, pulled a gun on somebody, and ran from police. So no, this is not another George Floyd

  4. There will a criminal, caught and wrestled to the ground who will say “I can’t breath”. The white officer will hesitate, back off. The criminal will pull a gun and kill the white officer. It will not make the news.

    1. Because when you sign up for the job of an officer there is an inherent risk. If you want to act like a snowflake and shoot willy nilly get out of the police force

  5. So everybody has asthma that “can’t breathe”? Seems like their gotoo. Good thing I dont have asthma, I dare them.


  7. Calling it now, in the future “I Can’t Breath” will be a very well known historic quote.

  8. “A big nothing burger.” —Van Jones

    This story shows you how dumb CNN thinks their loyal viewers are. It’s just amazing.

    1. So u think he pulled a gun on someone who hasn’t pulled a gun on somone else. Not saying that it’s ok, but once a cop gets control, he is now in custody and is responsible for the well being of said person. If he is passing out or struggling to breath it’s his duty to make sure he is ok, white or black.

  9. I can’t breathe is equivalent to innocence now. Kind of like “I can’t read” is equivalent to genius.
