Yes, you are an ignorant Texan, and undoubtedly a stupid cop trying to defend other stupid cops for murdering - and using under the influence as a guise. This pig of a human deserves jail time.
Wasting that one dumass, surely doesn't make up for all the lives lost due to drunken, tequila soden swines.

yes we do smart one.
Tasers, powerful electrical weapons used by law enforcement agencies in, among other countries, the USA are designed to incapacitate by conducting 50,000 volts of electricity into a suspect. The pistol shaped weapons use compressed nitrogen gas to fire sharp darts up to 21 feet [7 m]. The darts can penetrate up to two inches [5 cm] of clothing. Electricity is then conducted down wires connecting the darts and the taser gun. The electrical pulses induce skeletal muscle spasms immobilising and incapacitating a suspect and causing them to fall to the ground. They may also be used, in "drive stun" mode, as a close up stun weapon. The "drive stun" is specifically designed for pain compliance.(4)
do you know how many have died?
Since June 2001, more than 150 people have died in the USA after being shocked by a taser. Of those deaths, 85 have occurred in the USA since Amnesty International released its report (in November 2004) calling for a suspension on the use and transfer of these weapons. Amnesty International raised its concerns in its previous report that the number of taser-related deaths had been rising each year. There were three deaths reported in 2001, 13 in 2002, 17 in 2003 and 48 in 2004. In 2005 there were 61 taser-related deaths, and by the mid February 2006 there have already been 10 deaths.
Given these continuing safety concerns, Amnesty International believes it is highly disturbing that tasers should continue to be used in circumstances in which the suspect is unarmed and poses no serious threat. In fact, research by Amnesty International shows that most of those who have died have been unarmed men who did not appear to pose a threat of death or serious injury when they were electro-shocked - a pattern seen in taser use across the country.
In some agencies the use of these electrical weapons is allowed if a person does not comply with an officer’s demands. Amnesty International is particularly concerned that vulnerable groups, such as children, the disabled, pregnant women and people with mental illnesses continue to be subjected to electric shocks from tasers. Amnesty International believes that taser use in these cases constitutes excessive force in violation of international standards which provide that officers should use only the minimum necessary force; in some cases Amnesty International believes the use of tasers has amounted to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment, and torture.
dont do what a cop says and you die eh? if you condone such things, maybe you will be next.
<quoted text>
Your response only shows that you know how to cut and paste articles. You fail to mention how many of those deceased were under the influence of illegal narcotics.

I bet someone shot her, because no one can die just by getting hit on the head. Either she got shot, or she died because of the bomblast

Years have gone by now james. I remember when we used to look for bullets after new years with butch. I remember I shot you with a paper from a rubberband and you cried and then Joel and Julio jumped me 4 that. We were so young. I guess I always took for granted that you would always be there. Growing up across the street from you was like a dream now. Your not forgotten and I will see you soon. DJ fearless in the mix. BIK crowd

One of the more stupid things you can do is to run when you're involved with the police..the outcome is a lot beter if you do as you're told and not try to get away from them..and if you do try and run..chances are you won't be able to escape or something worse will happen...as it did in this case..and as far as relatives are concerned..its normal to be upset ..but don't blame the polce for doing their job when faced with someone running when they should be standing there...

How to avoid getting shot by a taser:

1) Don't get all badass with the cops. Ask Rodney King how well that worked out for him.

2)... really can't think of anything else. See #1, above.
