State Police are investigating the death of a 17-year-old after Martinsville Police used a stun device on a teenager Thursday night.
It happened at 307 Rives Road. When 10 On Your side came to the apartment on Friday afternoon, the door was already open, but nobody was inside.
What appears empty now, was swarming with police and investigators Thursday night.
Justin Gregory, 15, says his friend, 17-year-old Derick, died after a Martinsville officer used a taser on him. Gregory told us ...
The taser is an electro-shock device used on Williams, 31, as an alternative to guns or pepper spray. It disables the motor nerve system. In a victim with epilepsy, being tasered can result in death. According to Amnesty International, tasers are at best an unknown danger and at worst, killers.

Cops are killing people all over the place now, this kid was only 17!!!
This cannot be accepted or it will become the norm.
Cops should not be using Tasers at every call.

I think this is the first post from you that I didn't see the word "Tesla" in it.

Can't think of any situation where guns were needed by the police.
They have been shot first in most situations.
Its an Illuminati money maker, same with the taser.
And won't go away at any time in the future.
Now if things could be put to a vote.
Then Blumberg would nullify the law.
