Police Tase and Kill 16-Year-Old Boy After He Runs From Traffic Stop


art.mug
There is another controversy over police tasers leading to a death. Robert Mitchell, 16, died after being hit with a 50,000 volt taser shock after he ran from a traffic stop and allegedly resisted arrest. Mitchell had a learning disability and according to his family was merely scared.

Mitchell was killed on April 10th. His cousin, Chris Davis, was pulled over over an expired license plate when Mitchell ran into an abandoned house a couple blocks away. The police have cleared the officers and said that it was an appropriate use of the taser.
His family is pursuing a lawsuit against the police department.
We have seen a slew of such injurious or fatal uses of tasers recently, here and here and here.
