Tragic event but :
She was arrested and tried to run .... she knew that was wrong
She fell in an unlucky way as a direct consequence of her own choice
She was unlucky in her fall ....
The blame is her own, however sad it is.
There is no excuse for this. You call it unlucky? I call it illegal
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement determined Trooper Daniel Cole’s “use of force” was justified when he tased the woman last September at the FHP Pinellas Park Substation and cleared him of wrongdoing
Maudsley was arrested for her alleged involvement in two hit-and-run crashes and driving without a license.
“Fleeing cannot be the sole reason for the deployment.”
“When you shoot someone in the back, and they’re running away, all that force — as you saw when Danielle’s head hit the concrete — that’s why they don’t allow you to do that, because you can have horrible tragedies like this,” Hayslett said.
An Office of Inspector General Investigation Unit report states: “Although the FHP policy on Electronic Control Devices states that a member should not use the device on a handcuffed prisoner, it also provides that there may be situations that conflict with this policy.”
The report goes on to state: “In this situation, Maudsley … removed one of her handcuffs while in the back of Cole’s patrol car, and moved her handcuffs from behind her back, to in front of her body, as she attempted to flee the FHP Station. In addition, Maudsley was running towards US Highway 19 which is a high volume road.”
According to the report, Maudsley had oxycodone and coc aine in her system at the time.
In the report, Cole said he chose to use the taser because he “felt she was more susceptible to being injured if he attempted to tackle her.” Cole weighs approximately 267 pounds
the girl was wanted for a crime, innocent until proven guilty.
She ran out of fear. if she was allowed to run away she would still be alive to this day.
She was attacked by the officer with a deadly weapon.
She was sentenced to death, without a trial, due to disobedience.
Our law enforcement officers are no longer there to help you. They are there to arrest and create evidence to convict you in a court of law. If they so choose, they may execute you without penalty.
Welcome to our police state, our thug-run world, where those who do not comply, die.
This whole event could have been avoided with..........exercise

Lots of people siding with the cop here.
Not surprising, most of the members here hate other human beings and like to see them suffer.
Now...the penalty for fleeing from an officer should not be death. Period.
If you disagree with that, you deserve the fascist state you promote...unpatriotic sociopaths...
