Majorca: man killed by cop who sit on his belly for 15 minutes

Image of the police-inflicted murder
A man was so brutally immobilized by a police agent in Palma de Mallorca that he died of likely cardio-pulmonar crisis. The policeman sit on the man's belly for some 15 minutes while he spasmed desperately as can be seen in a home-made video. He eventually died and all efforts to reanimate him failed. 

It is not clear why the police wanted to arrest the victim but it seems he was running without pants (but with underwear on), whatever the case, the irrational brutality of the police "immobilization technique" has no justification whatsoever - even I know that, if you sit with all your weight on someone's belly, even for a short time, you will likely injure him/her and death is within the quite possible outcomes. 

Sadly enough, even with all this evidence, we will see how the policeman walks free with no or just very minor charges, demonstrating once again that justice does not exist for the common people.
