Cops stun-gun a disabled 61yo man while he was riding his bike. He died. Wednesday, Nov 23

"A 61-year-old Halifax County [North Carolina, U.S.] man died Tuesday, a day after police shocked him with a stun gun while he was riding his bike, family members said." Someone called the cops because he fell off his bike in a parking lot and hurt himself, and they thought he must be drunk and posed a threat. In fact, he was disabled, suffered from seizures and had trouble hearing (so he may have never heard the cops' warnings, most likely). He also suffered from being a black man in a Southern town with a long history of racist cops."
