    "Newly released video has revealed the dying moments of an African-American active-duty soldier who checked himself into the El Paso, Texas, county jail and died while in custody nearly three years ago.

    Sgt.

    James Brown reported to jail for a two-day sentence for driving while intoxicated.

    His family said Brown informed the jail he had a history of post-traumatic stress disorder after two combat tours in Iraq.

    Local news station KFOX14 said they fought all the way to the Texas attorney general to obtain video of the 2012 incident.

    The video shows something happened which caused Brown to bleed in his cell.

    When he refuses to speak with guards, a team in riot gear storms in and swarms on top of him, while he repeatedly says he can’t breathe and appears not to resist.

    His condition deteriorates, as he is carried to an infirmary, and has a mask placed over his face.” *
