Death Investigation

On May 4, 2008 at about 2:43 am, Saint Paul Police Officers and Fire Paramedics responded to the 300 block of Wheelock Parkway on a Suicide in progress involving a controlled substance call. Upon their arrival, officers were confronted by a partially clothed 21 year old male. As officers attempted to calm and control the suspect so he could be evaluated by paramedics, the male attacked both officers. After a short struggle the officers deployed chemical aerosol irritant which had no effect on the suspect and he proceeded to bite both of them. The suspect continued to fight the officers and additional assistance was requested from officer specially trained in the deployment of the Tazer device.

Officers continued attempts to control the suspect were unsuccessful and the Tazer was deployed. The male continued to fight, but officer were able to restrain him. At this time the suspect became unresponsive and Saint Paul Fire Paramedics, who were on scene, began treating him. The suspect was moved to the Paramedic rig for further treatment but did not survive.

Both injured officers were treated at Regions Hospital and released.

This case is in the early stages of the investigation and detectives from the Crimes Against Persons unit are gathering evidence and interviewing witnesses.

Thats right, the guy is dead and dead men don't speak.

Very easy for the police to get together with a story.

Sounds like the story of the State Patrol who killed a guy with one.

A "Tazer" device
Do cops tazer people to watch them do the crappie, that brings on a seizure like effect.
What is the voltage used in shock treatment?
Lets all buy one to use to defend our life against the cops, and we can claim self defence.

Where can I buy a tazer.
Are they still legal to own one, or not.
