Sheneen McClain, the mother of Elijah McClain, had some poignant words after the split verdict for officers in the death of her son.  The post ‘My Soul Still Cries’: Elijah McClain’s Mother Reacts To Split Verdict For Aurora Officers In Son’s Death appeared first on NewsOne.


Elijah McClain's mother, Sheneen McClain, said she is being cautiously optimistic after the Colorado attorney general's investigation found that the Aurora Police Department employed racist tactics and treated Black people differently from others.

Three police officers and two paramedics were charged with 32 counts in connection to the 2019 death of Elijah McClain in police custody.


The parents of Elijah McClain, a slain 23-year-old Black man from Aurora, Colorado, recently filed a lawsuit against the city, the Aurora Police Department, and medical officials, after he was violently detained on August 24, 2019.

Jonathan Smith of the Washington Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs will lead the initiative.
