Agitate, Educate, and Organize ~OO~
Both his feet and his hands were handcuffed.
The police said Edwards was “resisting,” but that claim is contradicted by the raw footage.
Once they have him in the cell, six officers can be seen stepping on his back and head, pulling his pants down
and Tasing him on his buttocks for over a minute.
The whole time, Edwards body was lying
motionless on the ground. His feet and hands
were cuffed. He was not resisting…
he was not even moving. They tortured this man to death!

Edwards’s family believe that the police are responsible for his death after viewing the footage.
“I just can’t believe it. The beating, the torture they did my brother,” his sister said in an interview with WAFB 9 News.
The family is still grieving and plans to sue the police, though the trial date has not been determined.
Visual imagery of a motionless Edwards lying on the ground as cops dog-pile him
and torture him to death bears shocking similarity to what cops did to Kelly Thomas and Eric Garner.
A year later the police have still not been held accountable. They got a paid vacation.
