Controversial body camera and surveillance video have been released showing what happened leading up to the death of 17-year-old Black foster child Cedric Lofton, who died after being taken to a Wichita, Kansas, juvenile detention center last fall.

Videos show the boy becoming unresponsive after being held face down and in handcuffs by adults for over 30 minutes.

However, a Kansas district attorney announced that because of the state’s “stand your ground” laws, no charges will be filed.

Last week two sets of videos surrounding the case were released, one from the police and the other from the county juvenile center. Between them they gave insight on the circumstances surrounding the death of Cedric Lofton, a Kansas teen who died on Sept. 26, two days after being restrained while in the custody of the Juvenile Intake and Assessment Center (JIAC) in Wichita.
