Elijah McClain’s final words…
“My name is Elijah McClain. That's my house. I was just going home. I'm an introvert. I'm just different. That's all. I'm so sorry. I have no gun. I don't do that stuff. I don't do any fighting. Why are you attacking me?”#JusticeForElijahMcClain

"That's not his character, that's not his nature," LaWayne Mosley, Elijah McClain's father, says about the Aurora police union claim that McClain violently resisted arrest in its issued statement.https://t.co/xJBYxIHDcR

"I think the biggest reflection is just lack of respect and response over someone's death, by those who are in power."
