    Tasered woman now brain dead
    A woman shot with a Taser by a trooper in Florida, falls into a coma, now brain dead. Jane Velez-Mitchell speaks with her parents.

    http://www.cnn.com/video/?hpt=hp_t3#...taser-coma.hln

    Local news story with (disturbing) video of tasing:

    A young woman was left with severe brain damage and in a vegetative state after being tasered by a police officer. The officer's dash cam shows 20-year-old Danielle Maudsley handcuffed, as she ran away from the Florida Highway Patrol officer. She was only feet away when she is tasered in the back. The victim collapsed and her head slammed to the ground.

    There are a few over there looking at some granite in their future. I guess nobody told them. Cops are bad. Drug addled people with two hit and runs trying to escape are victims.

    Things happen when you run from the cops. I am sad for the woman and her family but this stands as an object lesson in why one shouldn't run from the police.

    Ah DU thy name is DUmbasslyingpieceofshit...

    One has to wonder why this line was omitted from the OP....
    Investigators determined the trooper's use of force was justified.

    POLICE BRUTALITY!!!!!


    Reality check... you're handcuffed the officers are in your general area...DON"T RUN! Of course the parents are sueing...

    It's as predictable as the sun rising in the morning:

    85. I already agreed that any good cop would have been able to wing her with a bullet so

    damage would be minimized and she would have fallen softly to the ground.
    LOL! They never, ever get it. They actually believe this "shoot to wound" shit from movies and TV. Utterly clueless.


    Here ya go, DUmmies. This is how it's done

    Cops are notorious for being shitty shots, i've seen videos of cops unloading clip after clip and not hitting shit...at lest with a taser it's typically harmless

    I would submit that if she was a Liberal, she was brain dead long before her head hit the ground.

    Holy crap. I mean...wow. And if said bullet should 'wing' said perp then continue on it's way and hit someone else, what then?
