The List [LINK] now has 631 entries.
I also have been maintaining a list. This is the list of subjects where the taser was drawn and the subject died just before the officer was able to make contact with the taser. These people fell over stone-cold dead at the mere sound of the "Taser! Taser! Taser!" warning call, or perhaps they fell over dead during the taser-display, or perhaps they fell over dead as the taser darts whistled past their suddenly-collapsing corpse.
So these are the "taser proximal" deaths where the usual ordering (first actual taser contact, then death) is sort-of reversed. Any cases where the taser was just about to be used, and the subject began to die just as the taser was about to be used, can be included. Feel free to send in any reports that I may have missed.
List of those that died just BEFORE taser deployment-empty set-
Hmmm. Logically, if the argument that taser-associated deaths are mere coincidence were true, then there should be many hundreds...
So, where are they?
