Colorado has reopened the investigation into the death of Elijah McClain after an online petition garnered more than 3 million signatures. McClain, a black male, died in police custody in 2019. He was stopped when he was walking home from a convenience store by police responding after a 911 caller who had driven by Elijah claimed he "looks sketchy" and said "he might be a good person or a bad person." Four cops showed up to confront McClain. It is unclear what reason the police gave him for the stop but body cam show they grabbed him and he tensed up and told the cops he was an unarmed, nonviolent introvert and to respect his boundaries.
