Wonder what set him off. Maybe they said he couldn't use chalk?
So the toxicology report said he had PCP and steroids in his system. Wonder which of those was actually responsible for the childish tantrum LOL.
I find it surprising that his death from supposedly a single tazering is just glossed over. Even if you accept the reporter's stupid characterization of steroids as "life threatening," it's not the sort of thing that is alleged to cause acute death. Are we supposed to believe he died on the spot of liver cancer and shrunken balls? Enough PCP might stop his heart, sure, but wouldn't he have been even more freaked out if he had OD'd on that?
From what I understand, being on PCP eliminates the normal pain signals that would get a person to quickly give up when being subdued by police. The excruciating pain of the submission holds they use when cuffing someone is not felt, and the person keeps resisting even with a dislocated shoulder, etc, and that's when the nightsticks come out and the real danger begins.
Yeah, this guy didn't look like he even trained, but he did look young and in relatively good health. I wonder if he really died from a single tazer shock or if this reporter missed the real story.
