He was 20, and there's nothing in the report that says the taser caused his death! He could've been off his face on colombian dancing dust/heroin/crack, all of which could've killed him!
How about we wait for PM results before blaming the men in black and their toys!
Editted to add, if the taser DID kill him, he had a dodgy ticker and would've carked eventually. Probably when he overstrained it legging it with someone else's flatscreen!
A step too far? Why? The Police are only supposed to use taser, in situations where a person becomes extremelly violent and/or presents a clear threat to Poice Officers or members of the public. They are also warned before officers 'open fire'.
If criminals dont like harsh punishment or in this cnuts case getting zapped and dying, then dont ****ing break the law. Simple as that.
Buzz Buzzzz,I love the smell of arcing electricity,,,But seriously tho police uniforms did used to be black,complete with black buttons,black helmet badges and black capes,they also carried periscope shaped torches (in black of course),I don't know how they eventually became navy blue but in my area they were all black in the 1950s......
They were quite right to ****ing zap him, maybe we are seeing the start of some new policing, where they come down hard on cnuts breaking the law and are allowed to do their job without worrying about hurting the poor, underprivileged criminal?
Oh wait, AI are butting in, never mind, back to making sure criminals must be handled nicely and nothing said to offend them.
Because pink and flufy (that you would clearly like) is so expensive and hard to look after nd keep smart.
In my whole and times mildly disreputable life and despite more gallons of real ale than I can imagine - I have never given a policeman cause to Tazer me. If one ever does reach towards his tazer I will do exactly as he say - its a simple approach which may save my life. Perhaps we need some Public Information films - "if an armed copper tells you to do something, do as your told or die" It might save more lives than that "eat 5-a-day" or "don't drink&drive" shite.
