Taser Death At Vancouver Airport : Video


I reported on this tragedy a short while ago.
How Sad

The chap was a Polish immigrant without English, had taken his first ever flight that day and spent the next ten hours wandering round the secure baggage area after a snafu with the arrangements for him to be met. Understandably he was a tad frustrated.

Video footage has been released in Canada showing the last moments of an immigrant who died after being stunned with a Taser by police.

Robert Dziekanski, 40, of Pieszyce, Poland, was restrained by police after becoming agitated at Vancouver International Airport on 14 October.

Mr Dziekanski, who spoke no English, was declared dead at the scene by an emergency medical team. more
