Why would you need to taser a man of 59, maybe he was sick , maybe he has alzimers, maybe the CPC used to much force, does not look good, and the DCI is investigating, Creston is headed down a path of self...destruction...does anyone know who the officers were and does the victim have family? Only a couple of months ago the DCI were investigating the officers for rape.........

I heard that the man had a seizure at Fareway and that is why 911 was called in the first place. If it is true don't you think they should have taken him to the hospital not the police station?!?

JC and JS love this as they are hoping this will get them off the hook..don't let it happen that way either. This whole thing is NUTS!!

He supposed did have a seisure at Fareway and 911 was called...UH medical attention maybe. It is normal for someone to come out of a seizure combative. TASER??? What the? Are you kidding me? Who trained these dopes? Opie and Kojak?
Incredible! Rape and now excessive force ending up in death! God help our town!

No, 911 was not called to Fareway, did hear that the man was having a seizure,laying in the entry way and was tasered while he was still laying down...... and 3 officers picked him up and put him in the police car.....

Rape charges, now a death, what is next? This isn't LA. Our cops do not need tazers! They have night sticks, guns, and pepper spray, isn't that enough? How in the H#@@ does someone have a siezure end up being tazored and thrown in jail then let out. THESE ROBO J-A$$ COPS BETTER BE PUT ON ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE. Where was Rick Piel when this man obviously could have used a ride to the hospital? This CPD and Sheriffs Dept is a disgrace and a black eye on this town. It is time to clean house!!!!!!!!

It's time for Creston citizens to start patrolling our streets. It couldn't possibly be worse than now. This town is the laughing stock of Iowa.

I wonder if Mrs. Finley will have some wise words of wisdom in her opinion page on this death? Innocent until proven guilty? There is a 59 year old man who died, not in his home, but on the lawn of our lovely courthouse and law enforcement center. Isn't that suppose to be the safest place in town?
