California Coroner Calls Taser a Factor in Death

Comments Off

For the first time in Santa Clara County, California, a coroner has determined that a Taser gun factored in a man’s death. Dr. Christopher Happy concluded that “a contributory cause of death was post tasering and pepper-spraying.”

According to Richard Konda of the Coalition for Justice and Accountability, a local police watchdog group, “There are just a lot of open questions about Tasers, and we have been afraid people were going to die.” According to the news article, all San Jose patrol officers are equipped with the taser stun gun. Thus far, 3 people have died after being shot with the taser.
