Video taken by witnesses show 44-year-old Michael Angel Ruiz on the roof of his apartment building and police trying to talk the man down. Police then used a taser to kill him.
Ruiz jumped down from the roof and was quickly surrounded by police — who carried him down the stairs in handcuffs. Video shows his unsupported head hitting the stairs repeatedly on the way down.
Police are much too quick to use 50,000 volts of electricity from their taser guns to try to solve situations like this. Why would you tase an unarmed man on a roof? What is the rush? Michael Ruiz will never see his two children again ... and that simply is wrong!
