Tyrone West Died at the Hands of Police

Jan 20, 2014

The Baltimore State’s Attorney on December 19 finally reported on the death of Tyrone Antonio West, age 44. The report confirms that West died on July 18 after nine police maced and beat him with batons following a traffic stop. However, the long-delayed autopsy report dares to claim that the police did nothing wrong. Essentially, because he “resisted,” the report excuses the police for beating him to death!

Family members had to protest every week for five months just to get the city to release this report. Now the city hopes to sweep this travesty under the rug with this ridiculous report!
