Manuel Ellis, another African-American asphyxiated by police. What is written in the autopsy
A case from March, similar to George Floyd's, has now come to light. Manuel Ellis, a 32-year-old African-American, died, according to the autopsy, due to a respiratory arrest, following a physical constraint of the Tacoma police officers.
"What we learn from this video is that Manny Ellis not only said that 'I can't breathe,' but 'I can't breathe, sir,'" the lawyer for the victim's family told a news conference.
The lawyer considers that “this clearly shows that he was struggling to breathe, but at the same time he was trying to remain respectful in the last moments of his life. It is a sign that he was not the aggressive person presented by the police ".
The man died due to a respiratory arrest, due to a physical constraint, the autopsy showed, revealing that the presence of methamphetamine in his body and a heart disease could have contributed to the death of this man, only 32 years old.
The mayor of Tacoma, about 50 kilometers from Seattle, last week demanded that the four police officers involved in the case - currently on administrative leave - be expelled from the police and prosecuted.
Police said they arrested Manuel Ellis for trying to "open the doors of vehicles in which occupants were."

Flight attendant, confused with Meghan Markle! What does the woman who can pass as the Duchess of Sussex look like
It is said that each of us has at least one "double" with which he shares most of the prominent features. Whether it is in another corner of the world or nearby, many people have found, over time, their "clones", even if they were not in any case related to the genetic factor involving similarities between degrees of kinship.
And, if ordinary people, at some point, end up seeing their blood-twinned "twin brothers" but imagine how quickly celebrities can meet their double, especially if they are sometimes confused with the latter.
A flight attendant was seen so many times as if people were wondering "where is Harry", so she says she was ready to audition for the role of Meghan Markle in a film about the Duchess's life.
Christine Primrose Mathis, 32, of New Jersey, was first mistaken for Meghan 5 years ago, when Prince Harry's wife, now 38, starred in the series Suits. Christine says that she initially took the situation as a joke, but that she also began to notice the similarities in the end, especially after Meghan became the Duchess of Sussex and images of her circulated everywhere.
Later, she enrolled in a specialized agency and became, part-time, Meghan's impersonator. Christine also did pictorials in her new position and even posed with Prince Harry's lookalike. But a role in a movie about Meghan, in which to play her role, would be the stewardess's biggest dream.
During a visit to London, the flight attendant was assaulted by admirers of the Duchess of Sussex, who were shocked to finally find out that the one in front of them was not Meghan. "At first I was shocked, but anyway I took it as a compliment, I always thought the Duchess was very beautiful," said Christine.
Massive protests in London after the violent death of George Floyd: "There is no peace without justice"
The brutal death of George Floyd, an African-American who ended up trampled by a police officer, did not go unnoticed both in the United States and around the world. In Minneapolis, hundreds of people protested against the racist behavior of law enforcement and dozens of protesters were arrested. And the British were outraged by what happened and took to the streets to shout their revolt.
Hundreds of British people demonstrated in London on Sunday, May 31, after an African-American citizen found his end in a barbaric way, trampled on by a law enforcement officer. The 46-year-old man was immobilized, and the policeman continued to kneel on his head and neck until the man he found guilty of using counterfeit shopping bills took his last breath on the pavement.
After his death, people in the United States manifested their opposition to the racist attitude that law enforcement often displays. The British did not remain indifferent either, and on Sunday they met in Trafalgar Square to demand justice. "Without justice there is no peace!", The crowd chanted several times.
Demonstrators knelt, a gesture that became a symbol of the fight against discrimination in the United States, where similar rallies were held daily, after which they marched to the United States Embassy in Britain.
"Obviously, the images of what happened to George Floyd were extremely disturbing, as were the scenes of riots and violence in the United States," said British Foreign Minister Dominic Raab on Sunday. Asked on Sky News what he thinks about the issue, Raab declined to comment on a controversial tweet by Donald Trump and how he handled the crisis.
The American president, who has repeatedly denounced the "tragic" death of George Floyd, said the riots dishonored his memory by their "violence" and "vandalism". "When the robbery begins, it starts firing," he reacted in a message posted on Twitter, signaled by the social network as an "apology for violence."
