Recent cases have revealed the sometimes lengthy delays while officers attend to other priorities.

Quoted in the article is Professor Randolph McLaughlin, a civil rights attorney: “When the police take actions that result in injury to you and then leave you on the ground to die, well, I think that’s a constitutional violation.”

The article with Professor McLaughlin's commentary appeared in “The New York Times”.
