When a 'Non-Lethal' Weapon Becomes Lethal

Police love to tout Tasers as "non-lethal" weapons. Oh, but sometimes they are lethal. Like early yesterday morning in Waterbury, Connecticut, when police arrested a man on a public disturbance call:

Waterbury police said they arrested the man and placed him in the back of a police cruiser. He continued to be combative and was shot with a Taser stun gun, police said.

He became unresponsive and was taken into the hospital, where he died after attempts to resuscitate him failed, police said.
