Seven Calif Highway Patrolmen Charged in Death of Edward Bronstein
Two months before the death of George Floyd, seven California Highway Patrolmen—including a Sergeant and one nurse—held a handcuffed behind his back, Edward Bronstein, face down to take blood in a DUI case pursuant to a search warrant. Bronstein screamed that he couldn’t breathe. The incident was videotaped. Bronstein died during the incident allegedly due to methamphetamine intoxication and positional asphyxiation. Los Angeles District Attorney charged the seven patrolmen and the nurse with involuntary intoxication in March of 2023. Today’s episode takes a look at this disturbing case.
