Trouble is brewing in Raleigh, NC. Back in September, five local police officers were placed on administrative leave after an unarmed African-American male died in their custody. The man, Carl Devince King, 52, was violently swinging a lamp when officers arrived at 3032 Slippery Elm Drive near Southeast High School. The officers restrained him and called EMS because of his erratic behavior.
When EMS arrived, one of their personnel attended to King and initiated CPR when his condition noticeably changed. The personnel continued to perform CPR until King was pronounced dead. Both the Raleigh Police Department and the State Bureau of Investigation are investigating the death.
