All of you that say I'm ignorant must enjoy breaking the law frequently, or maby you also indulge in your buddys meth from time to time. Yea the guy was such an asset to his 4 children that he had meth on his person AND in his car. The dude died from a combination of meth overdose and the tazer. who has proved here that it was totally the tazer that killed him. the dude ran for 5 minutes. Anyone who treats police officers like that are a total waste of air. I hope you NEVER have to call 911. But wait, I bet if someone broke into your house, the first person you call would be the police, yea, they are no good. Your cousin made a choice. He put himself in that position. If he was getting help for his drug problem, they were not doing a very good job. Maby you should ask for your money back. The officer had to make a choice. His choice could have prevented an even nastier situation. How do you think that officer feels being in that situation, This guy is high on drugs, takes off running, what do you think the cop should have done?? Let him go? Your cousin made a stupid decision that cost him his life. You do the crime, You do the time. Instead of blaming the police department why don't you blame society for putting the meth in his hand. Ultimatly he is responsible for his own actions. I hope the meth was worth it.

If you are ignorant enough to run in a neighborhood in Santa Ana. Your going to arouse attention, especially at nite and being unfamiliar. People get shot just standing in the front yard here. Everybodys on edge, paranoia is rampant. So if you put yourself in circumstances that are suspicious, its unfortunate but you gotta use common sense. and common sense is the first thing to go when drugs are involved.

The guy was a doper, got stopped by the police opted to try to run, didn't make it. Another law abiding citizen gets just what he deserved. No loss to society and I don't care if it was your aunt Lizzy. There is no reward for stupidity.

most of what i see here is justification for this guys death. maybe all of you are right. anyone who lives in santa ana or visits there deserves to die.

doesnt matter. tasers are not to be used on a suspect simply running away. they are for subdueing a dangerous person who cannot be controlled otherwise or to prevent suspect causing harm or injury. neither was the case here.

Well I'm sorry if I offended you, but, I didn't say that it was only a meth od. If you would read correctly, I said it was a COMBINATION of a meth od and cardiac arrest. The man was high, he was running, did you see video? how do you know he wasn't fighting? People who say "cops suck" are the first people to call them in a time of crisis. I pitty you. The man made a decision, and it was the WRONG one.

it wasnt a meth od, combination or otherwise. dont 'pity' me or anyone else. save it for yourself. of course people call police when there is a crisis. thats THEIR job. using that to justify any actions they wish to take is NOT THEIR JOB. see the difference?

Well, that's kind of sad...but weird. I've seen someone get tazered and hardly feel a thing! Anyway, whatever, the guy ran because he had drugs on him, so what was he expecting? And are all you guys seriously related to the dead guy? I don't believe it!

First I would like to pay my condolences to the Nuņez family and my respect to James, may you rest in peace dawg :o(

Now to all the stupid ignorant morons who keep spitting their shit thinking they know how shit goes down in Santa Ana.
1. If you read the official report as to why he was stoped you will notice "unspecified", first singns of "he was fucken targeted for being nonwhite"
2. "He ran", that does not constitude a threat
3. Eye witnesses say he had his arms up in the air when he was tased not to mention he was "REPEATEDLY" tasted and kicked once he was down in the grownd.

AND THAT THERE IS WHY WE SOMETIMES CHOOSE TO RUN YOU STUPID FUCKS
we alredy know what the cops have for us when they stop us for no reason, yeah it happends alot, so get your facts straight before you start yaping your mouth

If there is anyone on this thread that doesn't get it's you. The guy broke the law, Decided to try to run from the police, that in it's self is against the law. They could have shot him but tried to stop him with a taser, he died
You on the other hand sound like some gang banger that hasn't done a damn thing in life except try to figure out how to get something for nothing. Not only are your comments stupid but you have no regard for the law of the land.
