I say both were the blame, he shouldn't have swallowed the bag and the cops shouldn't have tasered him

Didn't even look like the cops even knew what to do

Some of the comments under the dailynews article do say that this is really old, but for whatever reason the newspaper published it yesterday.
As usual, NY is always late.

Was he resisting because he couldn't breathe? I don't have sound at the moment.

Also there were like 5 cops, no need to tase the foo

Thats why I brought this video up.

Theres so many different arguments that can be made. Based on the title of the article, I thought it was just another case of police brutality. It wasnt until I saw the video, that saw the cops actually tried to help him out once they saw he was choking on something.

Im sure there are still going to be many people who feel that the man shouldve never been tasered in the first place, but the video clearly shows he was resisiting arrest.

We also have the case of marijuana as an illegal substance. Dude wouldve never felt the need to do this if marijuana were decriminalized, which I do believe is going to happen sooner or later if politicians could get their heads out their !!#.

I believe he already had the bag in his mouth...but he was resisting being cuffed.
then was tazed...which caused him to inhale the bag and cause him to choke.

he was still breathing when they were trying to cuff him

In many peoples eyes, law enforcement could do no right.
Rather sad.

It should also be noted that he was with his girlfriend.
Outside of his job he leads a hetero lifestyle.
