San Jose to pay $70,000 to settle TASER death
The author of the article, Mr. John Woolfolk, neglected to mention that the late Mr. Rios, in addition to being morbidly obese, had a 98% blockage of his coronary arteries due to cocaine abuse. The police became involved when Rios began beating his wife in public. Call me old-fashioned, but I see this as a lifestyle issue not a "TASER death."
So the widow Rios now gets $70,000 of the taxpayers' money, in addition to whatever other subsidies she soaked up over the years while living la vida loca with an unproductive, drug-abusing, violent fatass. Makes you proud to be an American.
