Restrained Man Died After 9 Tasings In 30 Minutes

How will police apologists and taser proponents justify this? As Tasered While Black (TWB) notes, the worst that a local news outlet could come up with is that the victim (and yes, it's absolutely correct to use the word "victim") was a convicted drugdealer.

TWB has more much about this horrifying in-custody tasing:
That document explains Scooter died after being tased nine times over the course of 30 minutes. He went into cardiac arrest. The certificate also confirms Collins was in restraints- in police custody when he died. And the certificate labels the death a homicide.
