In Texas, the county of Williamson announced a settlement of $5 million in the 2019 wrongful death of Javier Ambler. The 40-year-old Black man died after being repeatedly tasered by police during a traffic stop. As the officers attacked him, Ambler told them, “I have congestive heart failure” and “I can’t breathe.” The reality TV show “Live PD” caught the killing on camera but later destroyed the footage. “Live PD,” as well as the similar show “Cops,” went on to get canceled following public outrage over their glorification of police brutality.
