'They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime...'

(Headline USASan Diego County and other defendants will pay $1.35 million to settle a lawsuit filed by the mother of a Mexican immigrant who died after sheriff’s deputies arrested him in 2018, officials said.

The lawsuit filed by Dolores Rosales, of Tijuana, alleged deputies used excessive force when they took her son, Marco Antonio Nápoles-Rosales, into custody in August 2018, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

The court filing claimed the deputies had to used a stun gun, their body weight and a wrap-around restraint device to subdue Nápoles-Rosales.

He lost consciousness during the fight and was taken to a hospital, where he died the next day.

An autopsy determined Nápoles-Rosales died of sudden cardiopulmonary arrest caused by methamphetamine intoxication and exertion while resisting arrest. A toxicology screen found methamphetamine and amphetamines in his blood when he died.

After reviewing Nápoles-Rosales’ death, prosecutors decided no criminal charges would be filed against the deputies who used force against him.

As President Trump once said, “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime,” and apparently, they are taking American Taxpayer’s money.
