Cops Suffocate Unarmed Mentally Ill Man to Death and Fist Bump

Rio Rancho, NM — Ben Anthony C de Baca has a history of mental illness. But, he was able to maintain a relatively normal lifestyle until September of last year when doctors changed his medication. According to C de Baca’s wife, he’d been “acting very paranoid all week,” and while the couple was in a McDonald’s drive-thru, his “schizophrenic episodes” came to a head. Only 12 minutes after his episode began, C de Baca’s lifeless body would be laid out on the ground in front of a Walmart, in shackles — killed by police.

The incident started as C de Baca thought someone was in the trunk of his and his wife’s vehicle. So, to humor him, his wife got out to open the trunk and show him no one was there. However, instead of watching his wife, C de Baca moved his leg into the driver’s seat and slammed on the gas, ramming a car.

He then got out and ran to a nearby Walmart where he began acting irrationally and throwing things down on the ground.

“‘You are all murderers, you killed my kid’ and other things that didn’t make sense,” a Wal-Mart employee told police, describing the C de Baca’s breakdown.

Because of the Walmart’s central location to multiple jurisdictions, three police departments showed up. As one department tended to the wreck outside, two went inside the Walmart to apprehend C de Baca.

Body cam footage shows police bring him to the floor and place him in handcuffs.

“Stand up or we’re going to drag you out, one way or another,” an officer is seen telling the restrained man. At this point, police say C de Baca allegedly bit one of the officers on the leg — a move that would lead to this sick man’s death.

“A fucking bite mark, dude,” the officer is heard telling another on camera. “This cunt fuck bit the fuck out of me, dude. I had to punch his ass off of me.”
