Sigh, I was hoping you wouldnt go as low as this...
A) Was the taser working correctly? Ie, did it malfunction and kill him? It takes a lot of amps to kill someone BTW.
maybe. maybe not...either way, had they not tazed him, he'd be alive or at the least, he would not have been murdered? correct...
Murder implies planning, come on...
We dont know if this was abuse, acidental or just plane idiocy.
why? cause you don't want to answer it? how about you u2u it to me cause i sure am curious
I'm not afraid to answer, I just dont think this is the right thread to discuss it on because people would think that I'm suggesting that this
situation is a "need to kill situation".
as far as the how, i suppose we will have to settle for whatever they tell us when the autopsy comes out...as far as the when, well, after he was
tazed and not administered cpr and when the medics were not called for 12 minutes....that is when he died
I didnt realise that you where there and where giving him first aid. Oh by the way....why would they put him in the recovery position if he wasnt
Come on man, lets be realistic, we dont know the exact turn of events....and we dont know WHEN he died, I'm talking about how long after the
....he sure didn't die when litle miss lady was trying to talk and make with the sign language......that didn't kill him...seems she tried a lot
harder to diffuse the situation in a calm manner than the bacon did.
Maybe if you didnt refer to them as "bacon" you'd be a little less biased....
hard to say? thats something else we will never know for real..how can we? the lady said she heard them talk about tazing him before they even got to
him...at this point, they're gonna say what they're coached to say....i would bet it was an accident but it was an accident cause they #ed up,
No? Wow "The lady heard them...", suppose we should all take witness statements as law huh....wonder how many innocents would dead today if that
You say "Again" like its venom, come on, are you seriously suggesting that cops shouldnt be allowed to screw up? Are you seriously wanting a 100% or
nothing deal when it comes to thier actions?
i don't think every cop is bad but i think bout 8-9 out of 10 being bad seems about right....thats what my life has shown me so far...
as far as classing you a homosexual cause you're a sailor, uhh, no....you trying to bait me?
8-9 out of 10? Come on, are you serious?
I'm giving you an example, if I wanted to bait you I would.
i don't have any problems with sailors....my beef is with abusive, power hungry cops that set out to rock people....
Let me make a suggestion here....take it how you want it ok but let me just ask you one question: Have you had bad experiences with cops?
to the last part...no, i want 'just' punishment....who said rash and quick.
sure wasn't me?
Well then would you agree that we need to wait till the facts come in?

I watched the CNN video too. It was pointed out that if you listen to it closely, you hear the Tasing officer ASK "Permission to use the Taser?"
BEFORE they even walked up to the man in the corridor. The Commander replied "Yes!" and then they confronted the man. He didn't "wave his arms
about", he put his hand out, away from him with fingers spread and turned around. I didn't see an object in his hand. Then, an officer attempted to
grab his one arm, which he pulled away. At that point he was Tazed. He scrunched up and fell to the floor. He was then pounced upon by the RCMP
Mounties and a knee was place at the back of his neck, pinning his face to the floor.
Scared, isolated, tired, confronted, abused and dead. That's your timeline right there.
Wow CNN , guess we should take them as the vanguards of truth and rightousness huh? Afterall they did report about the iraq war intel, and that was
really useful wasnt it...
Come on people, lets be serious here...
