WATCH: Man Yells At Cops So They Pepper Spray Him To DEATH & Cover It Up

An investigation by an independent watchdog group revealed police claimed to be heroes after using pepper spray on a man until he died.

Highland Park, NJ — Twenty-eight-year-old Daniel Nagahama reportedly told Highland Park Police Department officers he’d gotten into a fight with his mother and was pushed out of her car, onto the street.

That’s where officers first found the young man, lying face down in the middle of a suburban intersection. But by the end of the June 2016 interaction with police, Nagahama would be pepper sprayed to death, and the prosecutor’s office would spend the next year and a half lying about what really happened that day.

Some said Nagahama was drunk. Others said he got hit by a car, and still, others claimed he must have gotten into a fight. No one knows what caused Nagahama to be found nearly unconscious that summer day. But one thing’s for certain. He was still very much alive.

Nagahama had committed no crime and his only “offense” was to raise his voice to police officers, who subsequently attacked him for it. This would prove to be fatal.

From the dashcam footage, Nagahama appeared inconsolable but non-violent. However, once police began holding him down and shoving him into the front of their cruiser, Nagahama became frustrated and tried to break free. As he attempted to defend himself against the four armed officers, their force continued to escalate.

That’s when one officer can be seen taking out his pepper spray and holding it in front of the open mouth of the delirious young man. It’s unclear if Nagahama was sprayed at that moment, or when he was taken to the ground, away from the recording camera.

In the next scenes, Nagahama can be seen on a stretcher, with hands handcuffed behind him, and placed into the back of a nearby ambulance.

Officer Brian O’Mara wrote in his police report:

Officers attempted to place Nagahama in handcuffs at which time the subject physically resisted officer control…A physical struggle ensued at which time I sprayed the subject with OC spray.

He died three hours later in the hospital. It was later learned he had a history of asthma. The pepper spray, alone, seemed enough of a chemical weapon to snatch the young man’s life away. The prosecutor’s office is now taking fire for what a government watchdog group alleges was a clear case of cover-up.

Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office (MCPO) Andrew Carey (prosecutor) contended, immediately following Nagahama’s death while in police custody, the police officers attempted to revive the young man once it was apparent he was not breathing. That contention, according to New Brunswick Today, is inaccurate. At the time of Nagahama’s death, the MCPO issued the following statement which reads in part:

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey said today that a 28-year-old man died at a hospital in New Brunswick, hours after he struggled with police who revived him when they found him laying on a street in Highland Park.

The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office is investigating the death of Daniel Nagahama of Edison, who was pronounced dead at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital on June 2, 2016 at 8:28 p.m….Nagahama was taken to the hospital after police stopped to assist the man, who was found on South Fifth Avenue in Highland Park on June 2, 2016 at 5:15 p.m.

As police attempted to revive him, Nagahama became belligerent and struggled with police. He was not placed under arrest, but was taken to the hospital by rescue workers.

Notice, the official statement by prosecutor Carey’s office made no mention of the fact the police pepper sprayed the young man whom no one knew was either injured, drunk, having a break from reality, or using drugs. That minor omission from the official narrative was followed by a near-year and a half of the MCPO stonewalling an investigation by watchdog groups.

Following an in-depth investigation by New Brunswick Today, no mention of reviving Nagahama is found in any of the official police reports, or use of force reports filed by all the officers involved.

Acting on suspicions the MCPO was attempting to cover-up the death, a watchdog group known as “Libertarians for Open Government” sued the MCPO for failing to comply with New Jersey’s Open Public Records Act (OPRA).

The watchdog group won in court and since their victory, a trickling of information has emerged. Predictably, the medical examiner’s report made no mention of pepper spray contributing to Nagahama’s death.

Now, other groups and members of the community are calling for an independent, outside agency to conduct an investigation into how a young man could wind up dead immediately following contact with first responders who were presumably there to ensure his safety. Instead, he was attacked, pepper sprayed, handcuffed, and allowed to die.

Instead of pressing charges against the officers involved in his death, the prosecutor’s office attempted to make heroes out of the man’s killers by saying they attempted to revive him. Just as with the nationally known case of Eric Garner, a man was killed after making contact with police and no one has still been held accountable.

With the prosector’s office running cover for the officers, no one will likely ever have to answer for the young man’s death.

  • I have to applaud these brave officers. Hopefully they too will completely recover from needing to use their service pepper spray in the line of duty. Its always hard when officers need to protect themselves by using deadly force. I will wait for the decision of guilt by the honorable judge presiding over their district.

      Don’t be too quick to take it out on the kids. I’ve met several cops’ kids who were abused physically and psychologically by their parents. A couple grew up to be decent and contributing human beings. Others are messed up the same as other survivors of abuse. On the other hand, taking out the bad cops and relegating the family to welfare until they can stand on their own is a price I am willing to pay.

  • ripinandatearin

    I hope people who live near these scum cops make sure they are “taken care of”. It’s easy. Just plan and leave no evidence. Scum cops. And I DON”T mean all cops. But shi *tscum like this need to be fired and jailed. Or something more permanent preferably.

  • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

    There’s more to this story….as in, for starters: Who’s yalmalka dood @ 4:20? And who’s the other observer (brass) that joins him @ 4:55? Why do the cops let perpboy go off for minutes on end, when he is (and they know, from their sidelong glances to each other) obviously drunk, stoned, and out of control (pick any 3)?? This looks like a Plan from the gitgo….

    Not sure about the official reports and prosecutor investigation, but the man was definitely violent and non-compliant. Police did not use pepper spray until the fight went to the ground. They threatened, but were restrained until on the ground. The guy knew what would happen if he resisted. What the hell else are they supposed to do? They used non-lethal force. One officer’s gun was spun halfway around his belt, so you know it was a fight on the ground. After the fight, you can clearly see one officer get a water bottle from his car and go to where the guy was. I would assume this is to rinse the O.C. off the guy. EMS was called by the mean police way before this and shows up within minutes of the spray. They’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t by a bunch of fat ass armchair quarterbacks.

    • Pepper spray is apparently not non-lethal, but then, nor was the Sarin used in Waco.

  • Chamele0n

    First line of this hit piece, “Police used pepper spray on him until he died.” That’s a lie. You can see it in the video. The guy was clearly alive and the fight did not last that long. When a cop is wrong, he needs held to the standard any other person would be. This is a tragedy, but the media is clearly trying to paint this as badly as they can. Also, he was detained and not arrested. He did not die in police custody. He was at the hospital when he died, under the care of doctors! This is the lying media trying to push an agenda.

    Its America. Were we all survive cop attacks for so much as being in there sight For such high crimes as standing in our own yards or setting on our own front porch, or even stepping out our own front door & being in sight of them. They are out of control only a dog pack on the streets! It is going to take citizen action. The stop at a place to eat. The citizen in the area are going to have to stop going there. Vote on what they are paid, You see them shopping in a store just leave your carts set & leave the store. So those who pay them kick back start loosing money on them if in there business. They are worse than MR. Kims cops. They are boycoted by the U.S. Time to boycot places that serve our cops who are worse.
