BATON ROUGE — A deeply disturbing video has surfaced online showing a man dying after six cops dogpiled him and tortured him while he was restrained.

The incident began when Ervin Edwards, 38, was approached by officers at a gas station.

The officers accused him of “disturbing the peace.”

Once the video starts, Edwards can be seen being dragged into a prison cell by a group of cops.

Once they have him in the cell, six officers can be seen stepping on his back, stepping on his head, pulling his pants down and Tasing him on his buttocks for over a minute.

The whole time, Edwards body was lying motionless on the ground.

Both his feet and his hands were handcuffed.

Cops tried to claim that Edwards was “resisting,” but that claim is contradicted by the raw footage.

Edwards’s family believe that the police are responsible for his death after viewing the footage, according to reports. 

“I just can’t believe it. The beating, the torture they did my brother,” his sister said in an interview with WAFB 9 News.

The family is still grieving and plans to sue the police, though the trial date has not been determined.

Visual imagery of a motionless Edwards lying on the ground as cops dogpile him and torture him to death bears shocking similarity to what cops did to Kelly Thomas and Eric Garner.

It’s almost as if this strategy of crowding onto an individual and mutilating him until he dies is part of official police training.

We guess these cops will not be indicted, and that they “feared for their lives.”
