Its time for people to take a stand. I'm not saying physical but I'm saying open your eyes to this area. The police department is full of corruption and it needs to be changed for betterment of this community. We have affairs,thefts,drug shakedowns,money missing,things stolen from evidence,drugs being planted on people,internal affairs,people being tazed,choked,or struck for minor things. I'm not saying all of them but there's quiet a few that need to go!

Yes!! I'm with you. We have no choice but to trust these people to protect our families. Let's finally require them to be worthy of that role. We deserve so much better than this.

Its time to form a group,contact people of higher authority,and contact new agencies to spread word. This last instance is enough of the bullying.

Lets bring back the retired guys, at least when they arrested you, it was deserved and they wouldn't hold it against you

It's funny that the police are always the bad guys. But everyone seems to forgot about the criminals. Did you forget that they are the ones causing the crime in the city? They (the criminals) supply the city with drugs. They harm the community with their actions. Take a look at jamestown. its crap. With an increase in crime comes and increase of arrest and police contact. Everyone fails to be accountable for their own actions and points their fingers at the police dept. If you get arrested it should be held against you and you should be accountable for your actions. Until you prove yourself. It's your own fault. Stop blaming others and turn the community around by raising your children to be outstanding citizens. I'm pretty sure those police officers didn't go to work yesterday with the intention of someone dying.

A couple of bad cops shouldn't ruin it for the entire dept. just like a couple of bad blacks, whites, Hispanics, etc. shouldn't ruin an entire race.

Dude, somebody died.

Unless JPD can prove that they had a real need to be zapping this guy with 50,000 volts to keep control, because someone was actually in danger, there HAS TO be consequenses. If there isn't, we're actually teaching them to zap whomever they please, whenever they like.

As for the rest of your post, we have a Criminal Justice SYSTEM for that. JPD isn't separate or exempt from the rest of the system. We don't just kill people and shrug it off because we think they were wrong first. Not in my city.

What are you going to tell CNN? Cops arrested a cokehead? Cokehead started flipping over a glass of water (IF he really did) and got tased and died? Can't blame the taser or the cops until his Cocaine levels come back from the autopsy. I don't think the cops did anything wrong and until proven different, kudos to the JPD!!!!

Someone shouldn't be tased for being loud, cause of death or not. Law enforcement is supposed to have actual training to that effect: when to use one, how to use one. Even JPD.

Could have been tased for many different reasons. Think what you want. Spread what you want. I will wait and see what the investigation results are.

Tasing is dangerous. Of course he COULD have been tased for many different reasons, but because he was annoying, or black, or cop was PMSing...while those are 'reasons', they are simply not good enough reasons. There should be very, very few acceptable reasons. We'll wait and see...hear what JPD want us to think happened and THEN see if they have the vids to back up their own story.

The guy died because he tried to swallow coke! Doesnt anyone watch the news? It had nothing to do with being tazed. Had it had anything to do with the tazer he wouldnt have died several hours later
