He was cousin, according to eyewitnesses, with whom were neighbors, he was continually stunned by the police. The Police could of had the common decensy to call our family and notified us of the situation. But we had to find out, from the person that lent James Nunez the vehicle he was driving that day. Shame on you Santa Ana Police!

May the Lord Jesus be with this family in their loss. May the One Who is, Who was, and Who is coming be the righteous judge to deal with this matter according to His righteousness and bring peace to this family. May incense (Christ Himself) be added to our prayers that all the family members may be comforted. Amen!

AS I STATED IN A PREVIOUS COMMENT JAMES WAS A VERY CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE. IT WAS NOT RIGHT FOR HIM TO BE TAKEN AWAY AT THE HANDS OF THAT PIG! WHAT REALLY HURTS AND ANGERS ME THE MOST IS THAT "SANTA ANA'S FINEST" HAHAHAHA...IS TRYIN TO USE THE OLD "UNDER THE INFLUENCE" BIT TO JUSTIFY THEIR ACTIONS AND TO COVER THEIR OWN ASSES. I HOPE THAT JUSTICE IS TRULY SERVED IN THIS CASE...I DONT KNOW MAYBE THE ASSHOLE THAT DEPLOYED HIS STUN GUN SHOULD RUN FOR A MILE AT FULL SPEED AND THEN HAVE HIS OWN GUN USED ON HIM. WE'LL ALL MISS YOU SOO VERY MUCH JAMES. WE KNOW YOU'RE WATCHING OVER US THOUGH. LOVED YOUR LIFE.

Yeah this is really funny to you isn't it??? But what if it was you who lost someone like this?? I would assume it would not be funny then...He was my cousin and he was a sweet, caring person who was going through a tough time. He will forever be missed.It did not have to go down like that and justice will prevail but for now let's just remember all the good times we all shared with him and honor his memory. Please pray for my family in our hour of need and remember always live like it's your last day because you never know....R.I.P. James I LOVE you DOGGY!!!!

There is nothing i can do,
to make him come back
There are no words I can say,
that can replace the words you long to hear
There are no answer's I can give,
that will satisfy your questions
There is not another soul I can introduce you to that will ever replace his
And, there is no love I can offer that will ever replace the love you shared
I can not promise your broken heart will ever be complete
I will not say it could have been worse
I will not deny it was a tragedy
I will not lie and tell you he will come back
He never really left
I do promise he hears you when you speak
I will say he loves you no matter the distance
I will not deny he is in a better place
And, I will not lie; he is waiting to greet you someday
He is every step you take
He is in everything you do
He is the air you breathe
He is every beat of your heart
My deepest Sympathy and Apologies go out to The Nunes Family and Friends...May he rest in peace. May the lord comfort you and your family Cindy S.
J.D.Y.

Police departments have defended the weapon as a safe means to subdue a suspect who is dangerous or combative without resorting to lethal force.

De La Riva said the decision to use a Taser is left to the officer. "It is intended to prevent serious bodily harm to the suspect or the officer," he said.

another ignorant texan heard from. unfortunatly

I can only feel pity on a person such as yourself. Please have the decency to keep your ignorant comments to yourself, and have some respect for his loved once especially his mother.

I live in Santa Ana. For the last thirty years I've seen how everything works in the neighborhood. You come here to score, they don't know you. Usually you get burned, or you stick out enough the cops notice. If they do, you run, you don't want to get caught here with anything, your scared you know you f***ed up. But maybe you can get away. no not from the SAPD they know how the outsiders behave. Panic sets in you run, you die. Shoulda, coulda, woulda, yea, you should have stayed away.
