New Videos Shed Light on Immigrant's Brutal Death

According to official reports, Anastasio Hernández Rojas was “combative” when officers attempted to subdue him by using a Taser and beating him so forcefully that he died shortly thereafter. But new videos and a joint investigation by PBS’s Need to Know and the Nation Institute reveal a different story. John Carlos Frey, investigative reporter with The Nation Institute, appears on Democracy Now! to share the story of what really happened to Hernández Rojas.

Watch the full report, “Crossing the line at the border,” here.
