Teenager Dies after Police in Charlotte Use Taser

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A teenager died after police used a Taser on him inside a grocery store in northeast Charlotte.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police homicide detectives said they will investigate why police used the Taser on 17-year-old Darryl Turner Thursday afternoon.

His mother, Tammi Fontenot, told Eyewitness News, "I want answers. I want to know why. I just want to know why."

Jeez-Louise...It was a 17 year old, non-armed KID. This tasering nonsense is getting completely out of hand IMO. They could have just tackled the kid and pinned him down, no need to electrocute him.

It got out of hand a long time ago.

But if the police version of events is accurate, which these days I strongly doubt, an escalation of force was justified. The taser however... no. If he had swung at the officer, maybe. But they say he was just walking towards them. Unless he was 200lbs of raw muscle, the taser was not appropriate.

At the very least this just adds merit to my position that the only people who still advocate the user of tasers when lethal force is not justified are little more than spineless state-humping swine who deserve a healthy shock to the genitalia. And a second shock for good measure.
