‘You’re Breathing, Because You’re Talking…’: Video Shows Black Man Saying ‘I Can’t Breathe’ As Guards Pinned Him to the Floor Soon Before His Death

Video footage showing the moments that led to the death of John Neville, a Black inmate who stopped breathing at a Winston-Salem, North Carolina, jail, has been released to the public for the first time.

Neville, a 56-year-old father of five, stopped breathing in detention at the Forsyth County Jail in December. A judge recently decided to release 40 minutes of body camera footage showing officers restraining Neville in his cell in an encounter that led to involuntary manslaughter charges being filed against the jail personnel.

Neville, who was being held for pending assault charges, reportedly fell from his top bunk to the concrete floor of his cell. Several jail detention officers and a nurse responded to the medical emergency.

Officers told Neville, who was “disoriented and confused,” that he had suffered a seizure.

“You’re going to be all right buddy. All right? You’re going to be all right. Having a little bit of a medical episode, here,” a corrections officer said.

As the nurse attempted to take Neville’s blood pressure, he became increasingly agitated. One officer used his knee to restrain him.

A spit mask was placed over Neville‘s face and he was transferred to another room in a restraint chair. In the observation cell, he was pinned to the mattress and restrained by five officers as he pleaded for help and repeated that he couldn’t breathe.

“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe, please!” cried Neville.

“John, will you stop so I can get these off?” said an officer as officers attempted to remove Neville’s handcuffs.

As Neville continued to say that couldn’t breathe, an officer responded: “You’re breathing, because you’re talking, you’re yelling, you’re moving.”

When the key needed to unlock and remove Neville’s handcuffs broke, bolt cutters were used to break the cuffs as officers continued to pin his body against the floor of the cell.

Eventually, officers finished removing the cuffs and left the room. According to the police report, the nurse did not see Neville breathing at this time. He was taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and died two days later.

The medical examiner found that Neville died of a brain injury and cardiopulmonary arrest due to “positional and compressional asphyxia during prone restraint.”

“I apologize for what happened that day,” Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough has said of the incident.

Neville’s family has filed a lawsuit against Forsyth County and Wellpath, the company that provides medical services to the jail.

Five officers and the nurse involved face charges of involuntary manslaughter.

    And was not the fact that he was talking saying he couldn’t breathe it clearly was because it was hard for him to breathe.

  22. Cynthia Bedell says:

    The ability to talk being related to the ability to breathe sounds like a failure of police officers equating their CPR Choking training to Manual Restraint tactics employing manual suffocation. There is a huge difference in the two techniques.

    In choking, it is appropriate to have a person attempt to clear their airway if it is still open. The ability to talk, supports this theory because airflow over the vocal cords produces sound.

    With manual suffocation, there is consistent restriction of the airway until it is completely occluded. At this point, the person is unconscious, most likely never to regain it again.

    The retraining of police officers MUST draw a distinction of the two..

He respected the officers. Ever seen the show cops? Plenty of white dumbasses thinking they can wrestle copa or outrun them and they get shit beat out of them and dogs sent after them.

    I don’t understand why everyone commenting in this post is so against what was happening in this video and not taking into account what it means to have a seizure, fall from the top bunk, and suffer a head injury. This man needed a benzodiazepine (midazolam/Ativan/Valium) due to his postictal state and head injury. Often times people become panicked, confused, and combative after a seizure, and to be honest, it’s not easy to help people in that state and it truly does require a lot of people. I see no wrong doing in this incident other than withholding medication. Get off of race and your hatred for cops.

    Now, that being said, officers need to understand they are NOT medically trained to determine if someone needs medical attention. The instance someone in custody says they need medical attention, they should call immediately for it.

    While you’re at it, did you happen to see the full bodycam footage of George Floyd? It shows the cops were right but of course that doesn’t fit the media narrative so while available it’s being buried. Look for it.

    Ps. If you can talk, you can breathe. Heimlich maneuver 101. Some y’all need to put down the race card and crack open a book.

    The guy was definately breathing and wouldn’t shut up and comply. The police were right in how they handled it. Sad the guy put himself in the position of having to be controlled by the police.

    What they should have done is have the nurse give him something to sedate him, THEN take the cuffs off and then take him to the hospital to be checked out.
    None of this should have happened. Sickening!!

  117. David Cvijanovic says:

    First of all you do not die from affixation two days later at the hospital if he didn’t have some kind of underlying condition. Let’s not forget that the reason the police officers went into the cell in the first place is because he fell off the top bunk and hit his head very hard on the cement floor. Why was he resisting the officers that we’re trying to help him in the first place…
    Let’s remember that there’s 2 sides to every story and so far we’ve only heard and saw 1 side, why did he fall off the top bunk in the first place?? Where’s the video that shows what happened before the police went to help him or after they took him out of his cell and sent him to the hospital??
    Let’s not be too quick to judge what happened until we have the complete story and not just the one sided story that the corrupt media choses to show us, also I’ve never heard of a person being killed by the police that listened to the their requests to follow their commands either during a traffic stop or in a holding cell….

  118. I’m not saying that how they did thing’s are right because the man suffered a head injury from falling out of a bunk onto a concrete floor after having a seizure which again is no reason to handle thing’s the way they did and confusion is a common reaction after a seizure they need better trained medical personnel!!!! But I’m really tired of the racism card being played for every single incident! We are being pushed years backwards for absolutely nothing because I’m sorry but it’s just not always true! White people need to stop being put in that racist box at this point in the world black americans are the racist and it’s soo unnecessary and untrue. The future generation is mixed american’s and we all need to educate our children and in my case grandkids to come together as one and stop all this big bag of bullshit that they are trying to stuff down our throat’s, l adore my grand babies and would kill anybody over them even racism from either side of that fence without hesitation I promise you! There is always going to be that one asshole that try’s to ruin it for everyone but please do not let them,push to do what needs to be done with them but STOP putting everyone in that box because for me I would protect ANY child or person no matter what color their skin is it doesn’t matter to most all white people we are as one so stop long enough to see that and we will stand together to do whatever it takes to hopefully one day eliminate all this nonsense for good!!

The truth of the matter is these cops all want to be known as being able to pull the trigger, it looks good on their record, that’s why when they get fired they get a job in the next county and the politicians support them behind closed doors. Chang will come when we put people like George Bush in prison for the war crimes he allowed.

    Whenever you feel your life is threatened you try to get out of the situation. Sitting on a person’s neck when they have already experienced an event of life in the worst way isn’t the way to handle a person. Why handcuff him when he had fallen out of the bed and onto the floor? He is disoriented and needs help not restraints. Restraints are life threatening in a case of this kind.

  143. Anonymous says:

    I was always taught when you’re pulled over or you’re asked to do something by an officer you obey when you fight back or you do things that you’re not supposed to there are consequences. Those consequences shouldn’t be death but the whole idea here is he was handcuffed due to his bad actions or other words resisting the officers. You’re supposed to know right from wrong. Also why do you keep highlighting white versus black what about black versus white you should be addressing both. Also it needs to be addressed that in many cities are killing each other a whole lot more than what’s happening today

    I’m so tired of 1. The race being played up by the media. Someone else said it, when a white or Latino gets shot that’s not the headline. If a black man shoots a black man that’s not the headline. It’s a media tactic, and look at you, it works like a charm. 2. No one is paying attention to the FACtS. He was in jail, and should be treated as a criminal for the safety of others (handcuffs). When they tried to help (take them off), he wouldn’t comply. 3. If all of these criminals, or folks in the face of law enforcement comply, most of the time things would be fine. (GF, threw himself out of the car, resisting arrest; guy at Wendy’s, stole taser; this guy, stop squirming so they can help). Example. This guy in jail, could have had a weapon in his pocket. Yelling I can’t breathe. Then stab everyone… They have to be cautious, not careless, for the sake of every human in the building.

    Don’t get angry. Just food for thought here. Nobody seems to want to be objective in their thinking.

    He should have listened. He was disoriented. Disoriented people go crazy. It doesn’t look like he was being ruffed up by the police. They were trying to help someone that didn’t want help because he was disoriented. Sad that he died but I would bet you that the fall from the bed was the real reason he died. Shame on you… the news media for continuing to report these things. You just keep America stuck in a rut by doing this! I never see you report the white peoples that die! Nope!!! Not Indian, Chinese, Japanese…. Only the black ones!!! Shame on you!!!! You are not reporters, you are crime inducers!!!

    Unfortunately if you a in a Federal Prison you are not in a hospital. A nurse isn’t a doctor. They were trying to restrain him so that they could help him not hurt himself or anyone else. They didn’t cause him to fall off of his bunk causing head trauma. All they can do is check him out and call an ambulance. He was a danger to himself. An ambulance team would have had to restrain him as well. He died of a head injury.

    I think the official should distance themselves from the person. And let the person Compose them self.

    Aggressive overkill, at the expense of another black person and their family, at the life of the life and breath their beloved. It is sickening. So sickening. And this is not new. It is as old as every day that I have lived, since 1967, and since the beginning of time. It is completely disgusting and the sort of human behavior that is so great it can cause one to be ashamed of the entire human race. After thousands and thousands of years of what we choose to call evolution, here we are, just as depraved as ever, rubber-stamping murder at the hands of some, and the death-penalty at the hands of others. By no means, whatsoever, do I personally view acts such as these as acceptable for “frontline responders”. Nor do I take any comfort in the likes being those entrusted to “protect and serve, with dignity and honor”.

    This, while all the world, some of whom compassionately watches this extremely unacceptable and unspoken permission to kill that is given to enforcement agencies across the world continues.

    This is the culture of death, at the hands of, “well, it depends on whose hands”. The blood is on all of our hands, because we continue to look away from injustice, or to fight injustice with violent words and acts. It can be neither.

    As long as things like this continue, we can expect the multi-dimensional chaos to continue in our world, because it is in humane behavior like this that causes us to be our own worst enemy, our own incurable disease, lost in the illusion that we are capable of being our own cure, our own salvation. Now, I hope and pray, is the day when all mankind will realize that in ourselves and the world is how we arrived to where we are now. That our every hope, trust and faith belongs in the hands of God.

The police? congress? senators? prosecutors? defense attorneys? judges? jury of your peers? These are the real criminals. So if anyone thinks america is for equality you’re a fool, or foolishly mistaking. The history of america is based on lies. The founding of america is a lie.

    At least unlike other deaths, this one didn’t seem intentional or overall agressive. This appeared to be lack of restraint training and not realizing the extent of his injury which could have included collapsed lung from his fall leaving him with decreasing capacity to move air.
    It looked to me as they wanted to assist him and didn’t realize his agitated state was a direct result of his injury.
    I believe an across the board retraining of officers on proper and safe restraint techniques should be mandatory given the amt of reported deaths related to that currently.

    Don’t get arrested for any reason. Don’t put yourself in a position to where this can happen. I’m not saying what you should do, but I am saying you don’t want this. None of do. This system…police, prosecutors, judges and even the court of public opinion are almost always not in our favor. So don’t be in their system.

    This is all bull shit just like the George Floyd thing .
    The man fell out of his bunk onto the concrete.
    The officer’s were trying their best to help the man but he kept resisting.
    Now here we ho again with another criminal thats in jail , not because hes on vacation but evidently committed some crime , and hes not a HERO .
    I dont think the officer’s did anything other that trying to help the nan .
    They could have let him lay and not gotten involved.

    Again we see what the news media wants to be seen. Just like Floyd when the other body cam was leaked did we see the truth. But it’s always a race thing.

    Do you realize claiming that they are racist, your doing the same thing. The man had to placed in a constraint chair (which is only used if a person is either a danger to himself or to others) shows he was combative. Second he has a spit guard which shows that he was spitting on the deputies. Which is a felony in itself.

    As far as he was just a man and why did it take so many to restrain him on the floor. I was a law enforcement officer in the 90’s and my hardest arrest to constrain was a 110 pound woman. The size of the person shows no evidence of the strength of someone that is under the influence of a drug or even adrenaline (history has shown that humans can have tremendous strength when in adrenaline induced state).

    Now as far as the handcuffs, the handcuffs malfunctioned (just like in other device can fail) and they had to cut them off with bolt cutters.

    The nurse was there and it was her position to make sure that he was not in distress and she failed to do that. The deputies were constantly telling him that he needs to calm down that they think he was having a seizure and were trying to keep him from hurting himself.

    The deputies are not medical personnel. Hence is why they started cpr immediately when they realized he was not breathing.

    Which can be see in another view of the situation that was left out of this video but shown by another news outlet saying he was being tasered in that video. When in fact he was not, it was the AED trying to restart his heart.

    So I ask don’t make judgements until you see the whole picture.

    People need to realize that, you maybe able to talk but if your lungs cannot expand then you will suffocate. It is a shame that people accept this kind of behavior and then say the police did nothing wrong. Even during CPR when the person regains Consciousness or start breathing you turn them on their side. Had they set him up a place to come on this side he would be alive.

    Something needs to be done retrain these officers and get the bad apples out! I once heard that to when saying if your talking your breathing um no I’m using what I have left to tell you I cant breathe………. come on this is just sad and a shame.

    Criminals know the risks of being a criminal. For them its an acceptable risk or they wouldnt do it. They do not deserve to be coddled. Why do black people keep getting killed by accident? Because they keep committing crimes and fighting the officers who have to deal with them. They’re doing their job too. Want it to stop happening? Easy, rally your people to stop committing crimes! Because i promise you playing victim after you’ve raped or robbed or killed or beaten an innocent person will get you nothing but more problems. Have some dignity and honor for christ sake!

    I have an idea. When someone is not following directions, is fighting you every minute to even try and help him, I say lock the door and leave him alone. Somehow it’s always the Police, “of which many are black” who killed the poor Black Criminal that fights and resists even assistance. In every one of these “incidents” the subject is resisting or fighting the people paid to
    Protect or apprehend them to protect others.
    I say just leave them on the floor until they quit fighting back. If they’re still alive take them to the hospital. Sorry if that hurts your feelings.

    Why is it, Black Lives Matter. How many white people have the same incidents happen or how many Chinese people have the same incidents happen or how many Spanish people have the same incidents happen. All lives matter. Yes it’s sad that this person was killed but if you think about the old saying sometimes you eat the bear and sometimes the berry to you. This time the buried him. Maybe that should be a deterrent for other criminals to stop

    Did anyone read far enough to see that this happened EIGHT MINTHS AGO, in Dec 2019? It’s still horrible, but the comments read like this happened yesterday instead of being a story dredged up by the media to msnipulate people and keep them worked up.

    The way it looks to me is their doing their job he’s not being ruffled up their training to get in to calm down that’s why the key was broken in the handcuffs. Do you think he had other health issues and they were not aware of it. I really hate this man passed a away but I didn’t see any restraint being put on Neville but that’s just what I saw.

    News headlines should be, ‘Another Black man breaks the law’. When are the black people going to learn to obey? If you do, you won’t end up in jail or restrained like George! Educate yourself, your brothers and sisters and your children. If you don’t become a criminal, you drastically reduce the chance of becoming a statistic.

    These Evil Inhumane acts Must Stop & the only way to make that happen is for those involved to be charged with 2nd degree murder, Every time. Allowing this kind of act to occur w/o consequences makes us nothing more than animals!

    I’m so claustrophobic I get maniac when someone get eon top of me… if you have lung issues or are overweight you definitely cannot breathe with the combination of panic and bodily suppression. This was ridiculous all of them doing that.

    I just don’t understand why, why can’t they just leave a person alone for a minute. Just to see, if their sick or not. People are dying while being restrained and asking for help!
