    "Stewart declined to say what might have been in the bag."

    Gee, I wonder.

    I'm surprised that the article doesn't say that the taser is what caused the baggie to stop moving down his esophagus. Oh wait, that's what the family will claim in the wrongful death lawsuit. "He was just turning his life around, and woulda been fine if the ossifers had just let him swallow that baggie of dope before arresting him!"

    Probably would have died either way from a drug overdose if swollowed or the bag in his throat.

    Yeah. Had an officer taze someone who was actively beating and choking his girlfriend at a train station. The suspect died on scene and the Medic was pretty much already there (dispatched to original call).

    Yep, under the bus he's going and they took away all our tasers to "test them."

    Maybe a signed waiver, or "consent to tase" form may be in order.:supergrin:
