Have you ever tried to explain an English-language song to someone who speaks Spanish? It can get pretty tough if there’s lots of hard-to-translate slang and even tougher if it’s a racy song like “Or Nah” by Ty Dolla $ign, The Weeknd, Wiz Khalifa and DJ Mustard. Can you image explaining lyrics like “Imma pop this bottle you gon’ give me brain or nah” to your mom? GOOD LUCK. Watch as two unassuming teens attempt to explain dirty lyrics to their uncle Tiburcio.
In 2013, Oakland police were dispatched to the Jaramillo household in response to a potential home intruder. Upon arrival, they saw 51-year-old Hernan Jaramillo acting erratically. Believing he was the intruder, they quickly arrested him. After being cuffed, Jaramillo was physically detained and eventually died in police custody. The 2013 body camera footage of the arrest and death of Jaramillo was obtained exclusively by the Contra Costa Times this week. The footage is disturbing and contains graphic content showing the arrest.
Just 13 seconds into the video, Hernan Jaramillo screams to his sister that he can’t breathe.
The officers told Jaramillo to relax so they could let him go. “There’s no reason to be acting like this,” said one of the officers. Officers say they were trying to distinguish if he had taken any narcotics due to his erratic behavior.
Witnesses said one of the police officer used his knee on Jaramillo’s back to pin him down. One officer says, “Should we do CPR?” The response: “Nah.” According to San Jose Mercury News, the family stated that there was a struggle as the officers attempted to put Jaramillo in a patrol car, and then dragged him “20-feet on his back to the sidewalk.”
Jaramillo was pronounced dead on the scene when paramedics arrived.
The Alameda County coroner ruled his death a drug overdose after finding cocaine metabolites and alcohol in Jaramillo’s system. However, an independent pathologist questioned whether or not Jaramillo had enough drugs in his system to contribute to his death, according to the San Jose Mercury News.
After suing the city for the wrongful death of Jaramillo, the family was awarded $450,000 in damages.
