The family of a deceased Pennsylvania man has filed a federal lawsuit alleging that police forcefully and unnecessarily ejected the slain gunshot victim’s step-father from a Pittsburg emergency room in June 2012.
Surveillance camera footage recorded from the ER at UPMC Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh more than two years ago shows Rev. Earl Baldwin Jr., a local community activist known for speaking out against street violence, crying over the body of his dead 23-year-old stepson, Mileek Grissom.
“I needed to tell him his family was going to be okay,” Baldwin told WPXI this week. “I was going to do everything I could to make sure they were okay.”
