Shock Video: Man Dies in Jail Lobby After Encounter With Sheriff's Deputies posted 09/04/2015, 2:03 PM (Infowars)
[Category: Tyranny/Police State]
The brother of a man who died after an encounter with Dallas County sheriff’s deputies says shocking video footage proves deputies are responsible for his brother’s death.

Surveillance footage, released by the sheriff’s department last Friday, shows 48-year-old Arlington resident Joseph Sheldon Hutcheson frantically running inside the Dallas County jail lobby on August 1.

Witnesses say Hutcheson was not violent, but appeared distraught and was seeking help.

"He came in saying, 'Don't be scared of me. I just need some help.' They just tackled him as if he'd threatened their lives," witness April Berryhill told The Dallas Morning News. "He didn't have a weapon. He wasn't swinging at the officers. He just needed help."

Berryhill told The Morning News "she saw a deputy with a knee on Hutcheson's back and another with a knee on his throat. Hutcheson said he couldn't breathe and his face had turned pale blue, so the deputies uncuffed him."

After a few moments, Hutcheson lies motionless as visitors continue to pour into the lobby. Officers are seen attempting to resuscitate him to no avail.

The full video shows an emergency rescue crew arrive and perform multiple resuscitation attempts for nearly 30 minutes before loading him onto a stretcher, as several onlookers ordered to wait outside peer through the lobby window.

Following a month-long investigation, the Dallas County Medical Examiner on Monday declared Hutcheson’s death a homicide, blaming the "combined toxic effects of cocaine and methamphetamine, combined by hypertensive cardiovascula
