#370 - August 29, 2008: Stanley James Harlan, 23, Moberly, Missouri.
Right around midnight on the night of August 28, 2008, Mr. Harlan was tasered, become unresponsive, and died. All in a row. And in the correct order too.
Police say when Harlan resisted, the officer deployed his Taser twice to subdue him. The first Taser shock lasted five seconds and the subsequent shock was only one second. Harlan became unresponsive soon thereafter. [LINK]
Oh sorry - CORRECTION - THREE TIMES. [See videos below.]
For 21 seconds. For 7 seconds. And then for 3 seconds.
That adds up to 31 seconds. 31 seconds? That sounds like a very familiar number...

The parallels with the Dziekanski case are amazing. About the only thing different is that the airport terminal building is missing.
