Professor McLaughlin calls police delay in providing emergency aid “unconstitutional”

While police-involved shootings have dominated the news in recent months, an article distributed by the Associated Press wire service explores one aspect of these cases– when police officers do not provide prompt emergency care for the person they shot. Recent cases have revealed the sometimes lengthy delays while officers attend to other priorities.

Quoted in the article is Professor Randolph McLaughlin, a civil rights attorney: “When the police take actions that result in injury to you and then leave you on the ground to die, well, I think that’s a constitutional violation.”

The article as it appeared in “The New York Times” is available hereMcLaughin1.
