Transcript for Police selfies fuel louder calls for justice for Elijah McClain
Protesters are gathering in Aurora, Colorado, as well, for the second night in a row, demanding justice for Elijah Mcclain. It comes after the release of selfies showing police officers appearing to re-enact the type of neck hold used on Mcclain during a violent takedown last August. He died three days later. Here's ABC's Stephanie Ramos. Reporter: Tonight, demonstrators in Colorado demanding justice for 23-year-old Elijah Mcclain. Who's this for? Elijah Mcclain! Reporter: Protesters facing off with police outside the station in Aurora. Outrage boiling over, amid a new scandal rocking the department. Officers Erica Marrero and Kyle Dittrich, both fired, and officer Jaron Jones resigning, over these selfies -- smiling and simulating the choke hold used on Mcclain, taken two months after the massage therapist's death. It is a crime against humanity and decency. Reporter: Mcclain was walking home last August after buying iced tea at a convenience store when someone called 911 to report him as suspicious. Officers later putting him in a choke hold as he begged for his life. I can't breathe. Reporter: Mcclain died days later at the hospital. Police say during the confrontation with officers, Mcclain tried to grab officer Jason Rosenblatt's gun. Months later, when Rosenblatt received this picture in a text message, he replied "Haha." He, too, was fired Friday. Reporter: None of the officers have been charged in Mcclain's death. Colorado's attorney general is now investigating. Whit? All right, Stephanie Ramos, thank you.
