The lawyer acting for Cornelius Fredericks’ family on July 7 released footage showing the black teenager’s killing at a Michigan youth facility earlier this year.
The security footage shows half a dozen staff members at Lakeside for Children in Kalamazoo restraining the 16-year-old after he allegedly threw a sandwich at another teen on April 29.
Three staff members from the facility have been charged with involuntary manslaughter and child abuse.
Attorney Geoffrey Fieger said he obtained the security video from the prosecutor’s office. Credit: Geoffrey Fieger via Storyful
