Another Black Man Dead from a Police Beating

courtroom response

On this date in 2003, another Black man died after being beaten by police in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Nathanial Jones, 41, died at the hands of six white-American officers during a traffic stop earlier that week. The officers asserted their constitutional right to remain silent while being investigated.

At the time of his death, the 342-pound Jones did have an excessive amount of drugs in his system but the city coroner confirmed that his death was the result of the beating from the nightsticks (formally known as PR-24 batons).
