This took place in July of 2012. The video has only now been released.
Go and watch the video. It is clear that Mr. Brown was ill and needed help.
No help was offered until it was to late.
Mr. Brown had Post-Truamatic Stress Disorder from his time in Iraq. He had disclosed this fact at the time of his jailing.
Mr. Brown had self-reported to jail for a two day sentence rather than pay a fine for a DWI conviction.
PTSD is a serious matter.
This is how it rolls in America.
If you can't pay, if you are Black, if you are sick---Then best of luck to you.
This country will kill you without a thought unless everyday people pay attention and demand something better.
