Same old thing: Tasered, difficulty breathing, dead within minutes
At least eight taser "associated" deaths during August. The monthly death rate is showing an obvious increase. Late last year it had shown a hint of a drop-off (from seven per month to five or six) after Taser International blinked and advised police to avoid aiming at the chest. Perhaps the message has worn off.
