Jury selection in the manslaughter trial of former Winnfield police officer Scott Nugent, accused killing a handcuffed prisoner, 21-year-old Baron Pikes, by repeatedly shocking him with his Taser is scheduled to begin on Monday. Pikes was shocked nine times with a 50,000-volt Taser as he was arrested in January 2008. The parish's coroner, Dr. Randolph Williams, ruled that Pikes' death was a homicide. Williams said he consulted with two other coroners, and both agreed that Pikes died of cardiac arrest caused by the Taser shocks.[LINK]
Mr. Pikes was killed by the taser.
According to the long-standing world view of the stun gun salesmen, this death-by-taser is impossible.
They were wrong.
And because they heavily promoted the "safety" of tasers, they should be heavily liable for these false claims.
And don't let anyone plead "innocent ignorance". There's plenty of evidence that their campaign was intentionally deceptive.
