Don't Tase Me Bro

Another taser death in Maryland. This time in Frederick:
FREDERICK, Md. (WJZ) ― The Frederick County Sheriff's Office says a man died after a deputy used a Taser to break up a fight.

Adam May reports, 20-year-old Jarrell Grey was set to interview for a new job Monday, now family members are planning his funeral.
As par for the course, this attack seems to have been overkill.
Around 5 a.m. Sunday, Frederick County Sheriff's deputies got a call that Jarrell and some friends were fighting near the Grisham Court East Town Houses.

"Right when they got out of their car they had their tasers, one of them had a gun," said a witness.

Witnesses say the deputy ordered Jarrell to the ground.

"I heard Jarrell say three times, my hands are on the ground officer, my hands are on the ground officer, my hands are on the ground officer and then they tasered him. Then they did it again," the witness said.
