Why police think they’re not to blame for the deaths in custody

| Top stories | News Today

Why do you think if you could maybe explain it

in layman’s terms, why and how Mr. Perez

die, according to you?

Sure. Simply put, he was very restless due

to his methamphetamine use.

He was hypermetabolic, i.e.

he was very… his heart rate was high, his temperature was high.

He was restless, resistant and struggling.

And on top of that, he had an abnormal heart,

which was enlarged and also had

significant atherosclerotic disease of two vessels

that were blocked up to 80%.

And by its agitation, which creates an acidosis, its

sick heart and methamphetamine

along with the irritation that can also cause the heart –

all these things helped to cause

a sudden heart event.

Do you believe or is it your opinion

to any degree of scientific certainty

that Mr. Perez would have died of his abnormal heart

state

but whatever the meeting

with the police?

With its temperature of 105 and its degree

of agitation and his behavior, I

believe he would be dead at some point, yes.
