Yet Another Case Of "Terminal Excited Delirium"

Man succumbs to excited delirium after police jolt him with stun gun

"(CNN) -- A 20-year-old man died Sunday after being shot with a Taser device (from excited delirium) during a scuffle with a sheriff's deputy in Maryland, a spokeswoman for the Frederick County Sheriff's Office said.

Cpl. Jennifer Bailey said deputies responding to a report of a fight in progress arrived at the location in Frederick, Maryland, just before 5 a.m. ET and found four people fighting.

A deputy used a Taser device on one of the men, who fell unconscious (who went into excited delirium), Bailey said.
The man was taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His identity was not immediately released, pending the notification of his family."

"Amnesty International has reported that, since June 2001, more than 150 people have died in the United States after being subdued with a stun gun."

Oh yeah, tasers are perfectly safe-- it's the people that are the problem...

I'm looking forward to the day or night when a police-awful-sir uses a taser on someone from a very prominent, wealthy family and the case goes to court and the shit totally hits the fan on it and well, maybe, just maybe, the case gets enough publicity to make everyone a little more aware of this new fascist danger of the impending poilice-state.

But i won't hold my breath.

These torture devices have gotten a free ride because there are powerful interests behind their dissemination and use.
A case like that could expose the explosion in use, nick, as can Bernie the-cop-on-the-take Kerik's legal troubles since he was instrumental in urging LE agencies to get them after 9/11. It's just a matter of time because cop rules seem to have changed and these cases are coming at us daily.
