Naked man dies after 4 taser shocks


rawstory.com

A naked man wandering around an apartment complex near Houston, Texas died after police shocked him with a taser four times.

Texas' KPRC reports, "A naked man who banged on doors and cars at a north Harris County apartment complex died after he was shocked by a Taser gun, deputies told KPRC Local 2. An autopsy will determine the cause of the man's death."

The article continues, "The deputies involved have been put on administrative duty pending the outcome of investigations

The Taser in this case may or may not have been warranted. The point I wanted more to make is the use of the Taser with the intent of it being non leathel. On could make an argument that a naked man would have not concealed weapons, so why the Taser? If not the Taser the police would have had to use the sticks and streanth to subdue the man. He would have been hurt, bruised, possibly broken bones. But the methods used would most likely be less leathel then the Taser.

Well I suppose that's anyone's guess.

What really worries me is that there are still people like this running loose on the streets.

The police that is...

N. Tesla please be careful out there!

But seriously this tazer business seems to be getting out of hand even more. They really need to make a better safer invention.

It kinda sounds like PCP to me. Then again the fellow could been dead drunk. Regardless he was not in his right mind. And now he is dead and has no mind at all.

And the cops will not be brought up on charges. Nor will they be disciplined. Most likely they will get a raise.

It's a sad state of affairs.

Oh my, this is a shame, there is no telling if this was a mentally Ill person, or a victim of a "mickey" and robbery, or what.

We will never get the dead man's side of the story

Worse part... The man put himself in the police car first - they told him get out and then tasered him. WTF???

Before raping her in self defense...

You can rape someone in self defence? I'll add that to my list.

On Saints Row 2 it only takes two shots with a tazer to kill. But that is just an aside...


....police use the tazer to subdue people, armed or unarmed. I think it is assault, personally....but we will see what the courts say.

It is absurd after so many cases of tazer abuse not to realize that when the policemen are told "tazers are not a deadly weapon" they feel compelled to use it extensively knowing that the person tazed will not die.

That is a very strong logic to overcome.

They will be banned soon.
