Jacksonville Police: Man Dies After Being Tasered During Struggle
[Editor's Note: I need to check the death count, but I believe that the number of people killed by police with TASER guns has now exceeded 300 since January 2005. It will only stop when we force local city councils to force the local police department to abandon TASER guns, and not one day before. If you don't get involved to stop this, it won't stop. We need to file lawsuits and keep on filing them. You will notice that there are no names provided in this article; neither the victim nor the policeman responsible for killing him. That's how the press keeps a lid on this abuse: no names; no one is responsible, no one is assigned responsibility. An unnamed man dies, so what?. ..Ken]

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Jacksonville authorities say a man died after being Tasered during a struggle with police.
A Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokesman says an officer had pulled over the man's car. But when the officer approached it, he took off running.
The officer caught up with him and during a struggle, authorities say the officer used his Taser to subdue the suspect.
Rescue workers checked the man and cleared him to be placed in the back of a police car. The sheriff's office says he then became unresponsive. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
An autopsy is planned. The man's name has not been released. It's not yet clear why he was pulled over.
