Video: Denver deputies fatally restrain Michael Marshall
Michael Lee Marshall, a mentally ill, homeless man, was fatally restrained by Denver sheriff’s deputies at the jail in November. Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey announced this morning his office would not prosecute the deputies involved in the incident. After pressure from a community hunger strike and a lawsuit filed by The Colorado Independent, Mayor Michael Hancock’s administration released the following videos of Marshall’s confrontation with deputies and how they and jail staff strapped him into a restraint chair and stood around while he stopped breathing and went lifeless.
