Video contradicts police claims about black man who died in jail cell after arrest for sagging pants


A newly released video – which contradicts police reports – shows a black Louisiana man lying facedown and unresponsive in a jail cell where he died after officers shocked him with a stun gun.

Sheriff’s deputies were called Nov. 26, 2013, to a Port Allen gas station, where 38-year-old Ervin Leon Edwards and his girlfriend were arguing, reported The Advocate.

The couple had calmed down by the time deputies arrived, but they questioned Edwards about his “sagging” pants – which are banned in the city – and then arrested him.

Police said Edwards was combative after he was placed in handcuffs and threatened to kill officers, and an officer threatened to use a stun gun to subdue him.


Really?! I personally never understood the Sagging pants craze BUT to first of all it seems this "ban" is designed to effect a certain culture and just design to generate more money for the city ie fines court cost etc.

Second this is scary and wrong the way these police are getting away with murder.
