The active-duty soldier had served two tours of duty in Iraq and informed the jail that he suffered from PTSD.

As at least five officers are holding Brown on the ground, he repeatedly shrieks “I can’t breathe.” His coughing is audible and at one point he says, “I’m choking on my blood.”

The video shows officers carry Brown into another room where they cover his face with a spit mask and inject him with two shots of a sedative, a local ABC affiliate reported. Officers eventually give him a small amount of water after he repeatedly begs for it. He then collapses to the floor and appears to have severe difficulty breathing.

All of this happened over a DWI penalty in 2012, but the video of this incident has just been released. The footage from the El Paso County Jail in Texas shows the last minutes of Brown’s life.

KFOX reports that the coroner helped the police cover up this murder, by claiming that he died from “Sickle-Cell Anemia.”

Attorneys say that at no time was an ambulance or 911 called for this clearly distressed victim of the Prison Industrial Complex.

“I can’t breathe! Help me! I’m choking on my blood!” These were among the last words uttered by Sgt James Brown, 26, before he died in 2012 while serving a two-day sentence for a DWI incident at the El Paso County Jail. The footage was released this past week showing what happened to the active-duty soldier from Fort Bliss before he passed away while in custody.
