Taser Death: Kevin Campbell (Tallahassee, FL)

It happened again! Police in Florida are getting very active with their taser guns lately. Unidentified Tallahassee police officers electrocuted 39-year old Kevin Darius Campbell on Monday because he was behaving 'erratically' outside of an apartment complex. [SOURCE]

The police say that Campbell was running up and down the steps, in and out of his apartment, before running into a woman's apartment. Officers found Campbell inside the woman's apartment. Police say that Campbell struggled as they tried to detain him.  One of the unidentified police officers pumped 50,000 volts of electricity into him with a taser gun. Of course Campbell isn't around to give his side of the story ... he's dead.

Campbell became unresponsive. He was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Campbell disrespected the police ... resisted arrest ... and now he's dead. Can anybody show me where the penalty for resisting arrest is DEATH?
