This same exact event happened in LA where an award was made for $5.5 million. The person had cocaine in his system and was tazed excessively and died. Surely these officers should have know of that previous incident.

He def over tased him but up to that point, I feel like the officer actually tried to do the best he could. I’m not sure if the victim had mental issues or was on something but I don’t believe the taser alone killed him. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Disturbing and painful any way you slice it, but thanks for posting. A life was lost, and the cops need better training. The whole thing is tragic.

From the outset, after seeing his erratic behavior I thought to myself that he was high on drugs. And sure enough, he was high on drugs.

Please BLM no rallies, speeches, or “peaceful riots.”
