For some-more than 30 minutes, some-more than a dozen deputies take turns kicking, tasering, scornful and abrasive the breeze from Thomson’s lungs even after he told them several times he could not breathe due to the facade over his head.
When Thomson screamed out for help, a emissary replies, “We are the help!”

“I’m frantically job people,” she said. “We didn’t know what happened to him.”
On Aug 7, she perceived a presentation her son had been released, but he hadn’t been released. He had been announced brain upheld at Renown Health hospital.
Authorities didn’t worry notifying Thomson’s family he was in the hospital for two some-more days.
“On Tuesday afternoon — the 9th of Aug — we have a sheriff’s officer here in Kern County that comes in and tells me that my son had upheld divided and told me he had died of a large heart attack,” Thomson said.

Understand? We are not going to get harmed by you. And if you lash out, we am going to make certain that you remember it.”
As the onslaught intensifies deputies are seen kicking Thomson in the side while others pin him on his stomach with the separate hood on his head, which creates respirating difficult.
Nurses enter the room to ask questions about his medical history, but never ask how Thomson was doing during the struggle.
