The Los Angeles Police Department released an extended version of the previously released body cam footage of the incident involving a cousin of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who died after being tased by police.
Police responded to the scene of a minor accident and encountered Keenan Anderson, who reportedly displayed signs of delusions and panic. The responding officer made repeated attempts to calm Anderson as he claimed that someone was trying to kill him. He would eventually run away from the officer into traffic and when apprehended, frantically cred out for help while claiming that someone was trying to kill him.
The officer suspected that Anderson was under the influence of something — preliminary toxicology reports indicated he had marijuana and cocaine in his blood. Anderson was suspected of being involved in a hit-and-run and a witness on the scene claimed that he tried to steal his car to get away from the crash scene.
Anderson continued to struggle with officers before a Taser is used on him six times in 42 seconds. He is seen being handcuffed and taken away in an ambulance, before dying at the hospital about four hours later.
“They’re trying to George Floyd me!” he cried out at one point while refusing to cooperate or follow the commands of officers on the scene.
Noted civil rights attorney Ben Crump and Anderson’s family are looking to cash in on the incident, having filed a $50 million claim for damages against the City of Los Angeles.
A nearly 20-minute video of various body cam footage was previously released on January 11:

Cullors, who largely escaped media scrutiny amid claims that she spent millions of dollars of money donated to the Black Lives Matter cause on high-end real estate for herself, including a $1.4 million secluded property near Malibu in Los Angeles, is being gifted a national platform to exploit Anderson’s death for political gain.
His family claimed that Anderson, an English teacher from the Washington, D.C., area, and father of a 6-year-old, was experiencing a mental health crisis while visiting L.A.
“Nothing prepares you for your loved one or family member to die a violent death the way that he did.”
