Taser Death: Joshua Nossoughi (Springfield, MO)

It happened again! Actually, this taser-related death occurred back in July 2011. This time the poor soul who was electrocuted-to-death was 32-year old Joshua Nossoughi. The Greene County Sheriff's Department hasn't identified the deputies who killed Nossoughi. [SOURCE]

Nossoughi was hit twice with a taser, and died en route to the hospital. The young man was an accomplished classical pianist as well as a small business owner. He wasn't insane nor was he on drugs.

Preliminary autopsy results didn't show an obvious cause of death. Of course, the obvious cause of death could be the 50,000 volts of electricity that were pumped into the young man's body ... but, we'll wait to see the results from the autopsy.

Joshua - I don't think that the police will act differently until (a) some of them go to jail for their actions or (b) until a blue-eyed blonde-hair woman is killed in one of these taser cases.

Anyhow, please accept our prayers for the death of your friend.
