Video released of 2020 Edward Bronstein death in Los Angeles


Edward Bronstein died in California two months before George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis. A police officer killed him by kneeling on Floyd’s neck. And there was widespread outrage. 

Bronstein’s death hasn’t gotten much attention. But the video was only released last month. 

The video was ordered to be released by a federal judge. And it will be a big part of the Bronstein family wrongful-death lawsuit. The suit was filed in December 2020.
