[Police] arrived to find Mr Galeano leaning out of the bathroom window and chanting incoherently. [Police then] deployed the Taser from outside the window after Mr Galeano failed to respond to orders "to get down". [LINK]
Incoherent. Failed to respond. Tasered.
In other words: In a mental health episode, tasered.
The "incoherent" and "failed to respond" are redundant.
After that didn't have any beneficial effect, the police tasered Mr. Galeano over and over and over and over again. They readily admit five times. The records indicate 28 times.
Either their memory is poor, or the taser is a poorly designed piece of crap that provides unreliable records.
Mr. Galeano was dead within minutes.
Taser International admits that there is a risk of death with each taser deployment. They clearly admit this in their recent legal warnings (1 May 2010).
Imagine how much more likely death must be when the subject is tasered over and over and over and over again.
