KHOU (Friday, 26 June 2009): Montgomery County coroner makes ruling in taser death
MONTOMERY COUNTY, Texas -- A coroner has ruled that the death of a Montgomery County man who was tasered a homicide. Deputies tasered Robert Welch in February after responding to a call of an attempted suicide. The coroner says marks on Welch’s body indicated he’d been tasered at least nine times. The deputies involved are still on the job. The Montgomery County district attorney is referring the case to a grand jury. [LINK]
Another successful taser 'save'. An attempted suicide completely prevented. Yes sirree. Changed that potential suicide right into a homicide.
Suggestion to KHOU's editorial staff. When Taser International calls up to complain about the "taser death" in your headline, just tell them to F-off. You're backed up by the coroner's finding of homicide. If they want a fight, give it to them.
