    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThe title of this thread is misleading.

    He was taken off of life support by his mother.


    I don't know that it is misleading. According to reports, he was tased to the point of suffering cardiac arrest, and his heart was not started until 10 minutes later by EMTs. His resulting coma was directly the result, as was being taken off life support. If you really want to be literal, you could say that he was killed by the hospital personnel who took him off life support. You could also say that police action led to his death.

    Correction, MARIJUANA, Schizophrenia and depression don't mix.

    Dang, more falseness perpetuated. This poor guy is caught up in other people's grotesque stretching of the truth.

    RIP.

    How many people must die before tasers are outlawed?

    Not a fan of them either, given the apparent very low threshold for tasers to be abused.

    Not sure if it beats being whaled with nightsticks or spring-loaded batons or being plain-out gunned down though either.

    Cops have WAY too much power already. They really don't need another way to kill people.

    i love the number of people who are worried simply about COPS abusing tazers. At least in my state (Louisiana) it is legal for regular CITIZENS to purchase non-projectile tazers. I've been threatened offensively (as opposed to defensively) with a tazer more times than I can count, one time being chased across a dark parking lot before slicing my foot open (after shedding my flip-flops for +2 Speed and +3 Agility).

    There should be much more stringent instruction and psychological training for the use of "less-than-deadly" weapons and the purchase of them by civilians should be just as regulated as buying a Sig Sauer P238.

    As much as I hear what you're saying, Scruff, this guy was proving belligerent/aggressive (broke gurney from floor and broke a handcuff). Cops wouldn't have to use this type of defensive weapons if people wouldn't give them reasons to. There is no denying, however, that tasers have been abused. But you only hear about the stories when something goes wrong. How many times has people's lives been saved or injuries avoided because tasers were used appropriately? We don't know because we don't hear about those moments.

    But the Right Wingers want few if any restrictions on gun purchases, too, so your P238 won't be regulated either. Half of these gun freaks have paranoid delusions of Blacks and illegal immigrants coming to get them, and imagine dark government conspiracies they must defend against with force, while the other half have John Wayne fantasies about being heroic cowboys.

    Odd, I've even been mugged in my own parking lot here, and yet I still feel no need to have an arsenal stashed under my bed. Despite my being rated Expert in every Army weapon I ever handled, carried a sidearm for half my career, taught Army marksmanship, personally run firing ranges, etc.

    I know more about weapons than most of these Rambo-wannabees ever will, which is why I also know that they have no place in many untrained hands, put there solely for the purpose of satisfying psychological cravings. And the tragic irony is that the victims of gun violence are police, who've seen their losses to shootings climb in recent years as gun ownership restrictions are being stripped away by Republican lawmakers.

    Very sad situation. I can see a major lawsuit looming in the wings by his family.

    We live in the same city but have VERY different experiences. You have said people called you a faggot as you drive down the street and chase you with tasers. Are you purchasing crack in the Iberville Housing Project when this shit happens? icon_eek.gif

    lol, naw. i haven't gotten the F-bomb in a while though. Mostly just excited yells of "Slow down!" The tazer business used to happen at car meets. This ass of a (now-former) member would leak our location to some of his friends who would show up and harass us/me.

    More recently, i was defending myself against some dome homophobe and his fat girlfriend jumped into the mix and started waving a tazer around. I had to go to court and everything after that, although I got my charges dropped thank god.

    A police officer dealing with an ongoing violent incident has to make instantaneous decisions for the protection of others and himself/herself. According to the article, the police had been called because 'Anderson had tried to hurt himself with a knife, and his girlfriend had struggled with him for it'. There was therefore a legitimate reason for the police to detain Anderson. Having been detained, Anderson 'broke the gurney free from a floor lock and broke a handcuff. At this point, police used a taser to restrain Anderson.'

    I can see nothing here that indicates the police acted wrongfully. Handcuffs do not break easily and it would be reasonable to assume that someone who had broken a handcuff could not then be restrained by purely 'hands-on' means. It is very sad that he died, but given that his actions appear to have caused the attendance of the police and that, having been detained, he then violently resisted arrest, he may well have brought these events upon himself.

    Sad the police tasing killed him, but there doesn't appear to be any police misconduct, at least not from this report.

    So sad.
