Joe, based on your comments, you are a very ignorant, uneducated, judgemental, hateful person. You have no respect for humankind and some day you will suffer greatly from your judgemental actions. To all those people in pain as a result of this horrible wrongdoing by the cops, eventually they will get what id due them. Shelby cops have a horrible reputation in the community and the state.
......Shelby cops are not very good. Same as the Chesterfield cops. Low class type cops.

Oh Shelbyville is so great. You don't think there's not a few bad apples on the force. How would you know? Are you a cop? Most cops are decent but some are so pumped up on their own ego they love getting down on a suspect. So if you're not a cop or don't know all the cops quit talking your bs. Oh and I know all the cops.

I think every since they started using tasers they have been useing them more than they need to they just use them way to often, older people would not have a chance with any health concers at all
I am all for cutting the voltage down on the charge or due away with them all togather to many dieing that should not be.

The description of this man's behavior is classic "excited delerium". This condition has been well documented as is associated with having super human strength and being impervious to pain. One of the most common indicators, along with the behavior, is public nudity - due to the person's core body temperature being extremely high. The use of the TASER has been the only reliable means to control this type of person. Most often, the person is taken into custody without further incident.(How do you explain the over 300,000 volunteer Taser exposures that have not had a single death?) The condition that lead to his death was brought to the encounter WITH HIM, and NOT caused by the POLICE.

"you are clueless" You really are clueless. Five, here I will spell it out for you so you can understand the number "5" cops surrounded this guy. More than a half dozen were there. Three, yes "3" deployed and shot tasers. The man was tasered at least FIVE "5" times. If this is not excessive force it is excessive laziness on the part of the officers. I pay these guys to "Protect and Serve" Not stand by and taser unarmed citizens. If it were one on one I would understand, it was five on one with back up standing by, for one freaked out guy. I wish I could get to be on the civil lawsuit jury.
It is well known that Shelby Township cops are lazy bullies with badges. Your opinion means nothing unless you lived here and have encountered these assholes in person. The leadership sucks, the standards are very low. They get DUI, beat their wives and abuse citizens regularly.

Yes, I agree 100%. Shelby cops do not have a leader that lets them know that their bad behavior will not be tolerated. They are allowed to act like animals. Over adn over, innocent people suffer from stupid cops.

I don't think anyone has volunteered to be tasered 21 times. I wonder if any of these cops would volunteer?

I highly doubt you would truly volunteer, but I would like to see what would happen, especially without the coke!

Please research tasers. You'll find not one death has been associated to a taser except for on medical examiner in Chicago who was biased because he is against tasers.
He didn't live in Detroit nor did he live in Sterling Heights. Does it really matter Kim? Do you think criminals are only south of 8 Mile? Your prejudice just slaps me in the face when I read your post.
Nikki - Have you ever dealt w/ a psychotic person? Do they act rationale? I wonder if they know right from wrong? I wonder if psychotic people are just generally nice and copperative and would do everything they ask for. Just because he cut your hair I am very inclined to say your right that the Shelby Twp Police are responsible for his death! LOL Grow up!
Yes and an Insurance Company settlement for 1.95 Million Dollars for the mans family. speaks volumes. The Police clearly blew things out of proportion considering that man was only running around in his shorts. It doesnt help when Shelby P.D.s Principal use of force Instructor at the time had a history of blowing things out of proportion too. He later went on to beat his wife severely while celebrating her birthday.

I dont think any Insurance company would make a settlement like that if they did not legitimately fear a jury seeing through all the B.S. and rendering a massive judgement against the Township. Its clearly not "going away" money.

Why is that? They certainly pay them enough, to be getting four year college graduates rather than friends and relatives of Police Administrators or Cops

Chief Lehman is college educated. He earned a BA from an Institution that counts attendance and participation at 10% or more of a students grade. The same institution tests students with "Open Book" exams. They also provide "excellent" "scholarships" for the City of Warren Police.

You are all fools I knew this clown this was a person who is a father and instead of being a decent dad and person he used to attend after hours bars all the time and go on drug binges for days! Really decent guy and good father, maybe thats whats wrong with the world today and you liberal hippies. He was a drug user and abuser he had a NOX tank at one of his salons!! Really, how illegal is that! And he was all hopped up on stuff every weekend and the night he ran around outside in his underwear, who does that? Normal decent law abiding decent people! Wake up, you walk around outside in your under garment infornt of your kids? Good role model the only people suffering here are those children, not only for the loss of their father but by the way they were raised in a dysfunctional atmosphere. Get a grip!!!It doesnt pay to party like that.

Maybe you knew him when he was doing stuff, but that was a short time of his nearly 50 years. He was a good guy. He never harmed anyone. He got mixed up with the wrong woman. As far as his kids are concerned, they didn't live with him because of the stuff he did back then. They have a wonderful mother that takes very good care of them. They are very active in their church and are really wonderful children. He was clean before this happened. At least his family thought he was. He was having marital problems and maybe that is why he did what he did that night. Also, you don't have all the facts about what actually happened so I don't really think you can say he deserved to DIE!
