Congressman Bobby Rush is calling for a special prosecutor to look into the 2010 choking death of homeless man Anthony Kyser.

Video of Kyser's death surfaced recently and shows a struggle between Kyser and a CVS store manager.

Kyser allegedly stole toothpaste from the store and the manager chased him into the alley.

Kyser was choked to death in the struggle.

Police say the death was an accident and no charges were ever filed in the case.

Rush sent a letter to Circuit Court Chief Judge Timothy Evans regarding the matter.
