Taser Death: Jersey Green (Aurora, IL)

It happened again! This time the electrocution-by-taser took place in Aurora, Illinois. Police responded to several 911 calls last night about 37-year old Jersey Green. It appears that Green was jumping on parked vehicles. Police say that Green jumped off a parked SUV when they arrived and he tried to run away.

Ordinarily being a fool doesn't result in the death penalty.   However, we now know that the Aurora Police Department doesn't like to be disrespected. They don't bother seeking out a reason for disrespect. They react.

Green made the mistake of jumping on the hood of a police car. That was enough provocation for a police officer to pump 50,000 volts of electricity into Green. The jolt was enough to knock Green to the ground where three police officers handcuffed him and put him into custody.

At this point the officers figured out that this UNARMED man was in physical distress. They called for an ambulance.  Shortly thereafter Green stopped breathing. He was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead.

It took only a few hours for the police to let the public know that Green was a registered sex offender and that he was charged with some drug offenses 15 years ago. They conveniently avoid mentioning that he wasn't convicted of those charges. It is typical in these taser-related deaths for the police to try to indicate that drugs were involved in the death ... anything to avoid admitting that they killed an UNARMED man by extra-judicial electrocution.

An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow by the Kane County coroner’s office.

WHATS WRONG WITH THIS. NOTHING AT ALL AS FAR AS I CAN SEE, THE POLICE RESPONDED TO A MAN WHO HAD OBVIOSLY BECOME DISORDERLY. IM SURE THE POLICE GAVE HIM MORE THAN ONE CHANCE TO COMPLY ,WHICH THE OFFENDER DID NOT. SO TO GAIN CONTROL OF THE SITUATION FOR A MAN WHO WAS OUT OF CONTROL THE POLICE USED THERE TASER. THE TASER IS A EXTREMLY USEFULL NON LETHAL FORCE TOOL. DONT ACT LIKE JUMPING ON PEOPLES CARS AND SMASHING THE HOODS IN ARE OK, BUT IF YOUR GOING TO WRITE AN ARTICLE MAKE SURE YOU GET ALL THE FACTS NOT JUST THE ONES YOU WANT. NO SANE PERSON ESPECIALLY A 37 YR OLD ADULT SHOULD ACT LIKE THIS. SO UNTILL THE AUTOPSY REPORT IS RELASED EVERYTHING YOU SAID ABOUT THIS IS NOT VALID. PEOPLE DIE EVERYDAY AND THE #1 CAUSE OF DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES IS CAR ACCIDENTS, BUT BECAUSE YOU USE THAT IN YOUR EVERDAY LIFE THATS NOT CONSIDERED A DEADLY WEAPON. FREAKING LIBERALS!!

Conservative Way - The penalty for disorderly conduct should NEVER be death...

family of victim 127. Jairious Mcghee want to say that law inforcement uses the taser to kill and then justify the death by creating another cause to cover it up. "EXECUTION WITHOUT A TRIAL" Please add Latest victim in florida to the list http://article.wn.com/view/2012/03/21/State_agency_will_investigate_officers_actions_in_Taser_inci/
