'BALLSTON SPA - A 43-year-old village man died early Sunday morning after he was tased during an altercation with six police officers, police said.
Members of the village police department and State Police deployed their Tasers multiple times in an effort to take Satre into custody, police said.'

They killed a man on a Saturday - National 'Thank a police officer' day. :mad:

Not to worry, an internal investigation will get to the bottom of it....

No matter what the cops would have been wrong. There's no winning for them anymore. Tase instead of shoot and the results wound up being the same, one dead person. Now there will be all kinds of "what they should have done is" type krap. Don't blame the nut job for running crazy in the street..

If they haden't tased him and just tried to subdue him physically they would be accused of using excessive force. The man obviously had some kind of episode, the tox screen results will give some clues I suspect. Anybody can have a bad reaction to something and lose control, feel sorry for all parties involved.

Some years ago there was a defendant in Manhattan Courts who was supposedly a martial arts expert and stated he was going to **** the Officers up. So they got the 10 biggest guys in the Command to stand around him, including one who spent 5 years in the NBA and stands 6'9" 260#.
He put 6 of them in the hospital.

I bet that most of the keyboard commandos here have never had the kind of violent confrontation that happens to cops all the time.

Some have without the benefit of weapons! Try working security in a rough bar. Were they in the hospital for minor injuries (aka CYA against any future claims) or were they legit beat up?

Some reports claim he was also beaten. We don't know what killed him yet.
