“Elijah McClain ought to be alive today,” Gov. Jared Polis said Thursday (June 24).
After 2.6 million individuals marked a request requesting equity for Elijah McClain, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said Thursday (June 25) that his office has named a unique examiner to reconsider the Black 23-year-old’s demise.
“Today I marked an Executive Order assigning Attorney General Phil Weiser to examine and, if the realities bolster indictment, criminally arraign any people whose activities caused the passing of Elijah McClain,” Polis tweeted.
As indicated by an announcement, the investigator will “decide if the realities legitimize criminal allegations against individuals from law authorization” associated with McClain’s demise.
“Elijah McClain ought to be alive today, and we owe it to his family to make this stride and lift the quest for equity in his name to a statewide concern,” Polis included.
