AURORA -  Rep. Jason Crow released the following statement after the publication of Aurora’s independent review into the death of Elijah McClain:

“No report or investigation can bring back Elijah or ease his family’s pain. We failed Elijah and his family and we must learn from this injustice. The results of Aurora’s independent investigation make it clear that the police should not have stopped, frisked, or used a chokehold.

“As we wait for the results of additional investigations, we must all work to reform the broken system that has allowed racial injustice, police brutality, and widespread inequality to go unchecked for far too long. Together, we will continue this movement and do the necessary work to create a more just society.”
