A Cleveland man dies after being shocked by a taser, and his family wants to know why.. Edward Buckner had known hard times. He had just lost his job, his house and he had fallen into a depression. But while trying to get help, the unimaginable happened. "I told him bye, i loved him and that was the last time i talked to him," Alice Buckner says. The last time she spoke to her husband Eddie was the day after Thanksgiving. He was being released from Erlanger, and taken back to Moccasin Bend mental health facility, a place he'd only been for just one day, after his family noticed a change in his behavior. "He just started, at times he'd talk normal and at times it was like he was confused," Alice Buckner says. A rise in blood pressure sent Eddie Buckner to Erlanger for several days. When it was time to leave, his wife says he told her he just wanted to go home. "He simply did not want to go back to Moccasin bend," Buckner says. "He didn't want to go the first time." Police say while they were trying to put Buckner in the van, he got combative with Erlanger and Hamilton County corrections officers. They wound up shocking him with a Taser. Once they subdued him, officers then loaded the 53-year-old into the van. But when they got to Moccasin Bend, Buckner was unresponsive. Officers drove him back to Erlanger. He was pronounced dead. "Y'all have to show me a camera, show my husband standing up there fighting with them before I believe them," Buckner says, fighting back tears.
