Angelique Negroni-Kearse watched helplessly as her husband died before her eyes in what felt like slow motion. The #Bronx widow, after viewing a police #dashcam video of her gasping spouse’s final minutes alive last May, was horrified by his #death and the callousness of the cops who refused to help him.
Andrew Kearse, 40, repeatedly asked for assistance as a Schenectady #police officer turned a deaf ear to his pleas — even ignoring his announcement that “I can’t breathe.” Negroni-Kearse saw the video in the office of upstate prosecutors investigating the case with the #NewYork State Police. She taped the audio and opted to make the 45-minute recording public.
The audio released by Negroni-Kearse includes 25 minutes where her husband was inside the police car with the arresting officers back on May 11, 2017. #Though he was clearly having trouble breathing, the arresting officers did nothing to assist the dying man. “Please, please, sir,” Kearse says at one point as he struggles to catch his breath. “I can’t breathe! Please! Sir! Yo!” As the suspect begged the arresting officers to get him help, one of the cops sarcastically made reference to Kearse’s decision to flee. “Please, please ... Officer!” the suspect shouts at one point. “Is it hot?” one of the cops inquires. “You probably shouldn’t run next time.” Kearse — released from state prison just 15 days earlier — repeated verbatim the words of #EricGarner, who told arresting officers “ #Icantbreathe” before he collapsed and died.
In November, Kearse’s widow filed a notice of claim announcing her intention to file a $25 million #lawsuit against the upstate police. #melanin#panafrican#foodforthought#blackisbeautiful#blackwomenrock#blackboyjoy#blackexcellence#culture#blackmagic#rbg#blackmenrock#embracebeauty#blackunity#blackmedia
