‘I can’t breathe’: Oklahoma City police release footage of moments leading to Derrick Ollie Scott’s Death

Oklahoma City police have released bodycam footage from May 2019 showing the moments before suspect Derrick Ollie Scott died in custody. In the video, Scott can be heard pleading to arresting officers, “I can’t breathe.” The release of the footage comes after pressure from the Oklahoma City chapter of Black Lives Matter to revisit the case. Despite the release of the footage, the Oklahoma City Police Department stands by its assessment that the officers involved committed no wrongdoing.
