Taser Death: Raymond Allen, Jr. (Galveston, TX)

It happened again! This time an UNARMED 34-year old father of three was killed by taser-happy officers from the Galveston Police Department. The family of Raymond Allen, Jr. seeks to find out exactly what happened to him. [SOURCE]
"He was tasered from what I hear, two to three times and hog tied." said the victim's father, Raymond Allen Sr.

Allen Jr. rented a room at a Galveston motel on February 29, 2012.  He was seen jumping from a second story balcony. A worker at the motel said she saw Allen Jr. jump twice and that's when the police showed up. Instead of helping the unarmed man ... the police pumped him with 50,000 volts of electricity more than once.

The crime listed on the incident report is resisting arrest.

Investigators also said that Allen Jr. stopped breathing at the scene, was revived, then rushed to the hospital. He died two days later.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office performed an autopsy, but the ruling on what caused his death is pending results from a toxicology report.

The family has already filed a lawsuit in this case.
