Nugent Indicted

Scott Nugent was indicted yesterday on counts of manslaughter and official malfeasance for the death of Baron Pikes. Nugent tased an already handcuffed Pikes nine times. Pikes subsequently died from cardiac arrest.

There's no reason to tase someone in handcuffs nine times. I hope the jury is smart enough to keep that in mind. They'll probably have to hear plenty of Taser International-inspired expert witness testimony. I wonder if they'll be told that tasers are safer than Tylenol.
