Howard Hyde, who died 30 hours after being stunned with a Taser... Three years after Howard Hyde died in a Halifax-area jail cell, a provincial court judge says his death was accidental and not the result of excited delirium. ... A medical examiner [had] concluded the cause of death was excited delirium with three contributing factors: the restraint technique used by guards and Hyde's obesity and heart disease. ... [CBC]
"Excited delirium"... Part of the lexicon of deception.
Background (based on previous news reports):
Mr. Hyde was off his medication. Police were called. At the station, one officer apparently thought it would be a good idea to approach Mr. Hyde with an open knife, in order to cut off part of his clothing. Mr. Hyde, perhaps unsurprisingly, reacted badly. A struggle ensued. Mr. Hyde was tasered-and-immediately-died, but was heroically revived. Later, another struggle, and he died again.
