Sydney: Earlier this week, a 21 year old Brazilian student died when he was tasered.
As the CCTV video on the Sydney Morning Herald website (Death after Tasering 20 March 2012) shows, the alleged suspect was running away from the police. Witnesses also say he was screaming
The premise of innocent until found guilty has been abandoned, the Police have become judge, jury, executioner.
This is capital punishment without a charge ever being laid.
So, what would it take to get tasers banned from use in Australia?
Edited to add (22 Mar 2012): Tasered Brazilian student ‘didn’t steal biscuits’, reports that a witness, has supposedly said the deceased was not the man who stole the biscuits
