Bowman, who some of the time alluded to Wilkerson by his epithet “C,” said she knew one of the officials associated with the capture since he was habitually nearby by her trailer park.
The morning of his passing, Wilkerson was playing computer games at Bowmen with her beau. He left at 11:45 a.m. furthermore, was clean, quiet, and rational, she said.
“When he got out of the trailer, he shut the entryway behind him and I and my beau heard him conversing with somebody,” Bowman said.
She said Wilkerson went around her trailer to keep away from the official. The officers followed him and ran into a clothesline and mentioned reinforcement, Bowman said.
That is the point at which she started recording.
“The video was six minutes in length, and I began recording at 12:02 p.m.,” Bowman said. “In that 15 minutes, he went from being beneficial to nearly dead.”
Bowman’s video was recorded in a good way, and it is once in a while hard to hear the officials or get a nearby glance at Wilkerson’s face. Bowman can be heard letting officials know that Wilkerson is experiencing issues breathing and losing variety.
The start of the video shows four officials encompassing Wilkerson who is sitting before a police SUV, his wrists cuffed despite his good faith.
“He’s in a real sense staying there dropping, man,” Bowman says on the recording.

“Let him know he had a warrant, and he began running,” the official says. “That little red rope there got me under my neck.”
‘He can’t relax
An official can be heard a couple of seconds after the fact saying Wilkerson “won’t stand up.” Two officials then stand on one or the other side of Wilkerson, assisting him with remaining as they endeavor to move him into the SUV’s secondary lounge.
Wilkerson inclines forward while making little moves toward the indirect access as Bowman finds out if he will get any clinical treatment. An official answer and however the word clinic is heard, the full sentence is muddled.
Bowman said that she accepted the official’s reaction that they wouldn’t take him to the clinic.
“We were requesting clinical consideration, he was requesting clinical consideration, he was requesting sympathy and he was denied and ridiculed for it,” Bowman said. “They would not radio to a surgeon… The final words I heard before they shut the entryway on Clarence was stifled and rough, ‘I can’t relax.'”
Wilkerson is at this point not apparent after around two minutes, the vehicle entryway impeding him as two officials seem to address him. Four different officials are seen to the side of the vehicle.
