In North Carolina, newly released police body-camera video shows Darryl Tyree Williams, an unarmed 32-year-old Black man, warning he had heart problems after a group of Raleigh officers repeatedly used a Taser on him until he lost consciousness. Williams is heard telling officers, “I’ve got heart problems. … Please! Please!” Despite the appeal, officers tased Williams a third time. He died about an hour after his violent arrest on January 17. Six officers have been placed on administrative leave while the Raleigh Police Department carries out an investigation. The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is also conducting its own probe.
