If this is not true then why the police has felt the need to label this behavior as EXCITED DELIRIUM??? It is starting to be found everywhere even in
Europe....as in wikipedia
Excited delirium is a condition that manifests as a combination of delirium, psychomotor agitation, anxiety, hallucinations, speech disturbances,
disorientation, violent and bizarre behavior, insensitivity to pain, elevated body temperature, and superhuman strength. Excited delirium is
sometimes called excited delirium syndrome if it results in sudden death (usually via cardiac or respiratory arrest), an outcome that is sometimes
associated with the use of physical control measures, including police restraint and tasers. Excited delirium arises most commonly in male
subjects with a history of serious mental illness and/or acute or chronic drug abuse, particularly stimulant drugs such as coc aine.
Alcohol withdrawal or head trauma may also contribute to the condition.
The diagnosis of excited delirium has been controversial. Excited delirium has been listed as a cause of death by some medical examiners for
several years, mainly as a diagnosis of exclusion established on autopsy. Additionally, academic discussion of excited delirium has been
largely confined to forensic science literature, providing limited documentation about patients that survive the condition. These circumstances
have led some civil liberties groups to question the cause of death diagnosis, claiming that excited delirium has been used to "excuse and
exonerate" law enforcement authorities following the death of detained subjects, a possible "conspiracy or cover-up for brutality" when restraining
agitated individuals. Also contributing to the controversy is the role of taser use in excited delirium deaths. The American College of
Emergency Physicians has officially recognized excited delirium as a unique syndrome and "rejects the theory" that excited delirium is an
"invented syndrome" used to excuse or cover-up the use of excessive force by law enforcement. However, it has not been recognized as a medical
or psychiatric diagnosis according to either the ''Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition, Text Revision'' (DSM-IV-TR)
of the American Psychiatric Association or the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organization. 
These are just a few I believe excited delirium deserves it's own thread.
