"According to the medical examiner, the levels of methamphetamine in the decedent's blood were phenomenal," Tulare police Capt. Wes Hensley said.Unidentified Tulare police officers responded to a local motel after receiving calls about a man, later identified as Olivo, knocking on doors, calling for help and causing chaos, police said. After arriving at the motel, officers spotted the man, who seemed disoriented and appeared to be under the influence of an intoxicant, police said.
Instead of helping the man ... or calling for medical assistance ... the police decided to get in a fight with the Olivo. A struggle ensued and the unidentified officers used pepper spray and then a Taser to gain control and take the man into custody.
Olivo lost consciousness and had difficulty breathing. 50,000 volts of electricity into your body tends to do that. Anyhow, he was transported to Tulare Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Olivo was calling for help. Instead of help ... he received 50,000 volts of electricity and death from the Tulare police officers.
The penalty for being a meth-head is not death ... yet, we are forced to watch another taser-related death being swept under the rug under the guise of 'drugs'.
Something smells ... don't you think?
