Suffolk County: Coram man dead after being tasered by police

I don’t think that the activist community in Suffolk County realized our police had tasers. People should try to stop the use of this weapon. It has a history of abuse and suffering. Police think it is non-lethal, so they overuse it, which creates consequences like the death of a man in Coram. There are some examples of taser horror stories at John Turley’s Constitutional law blog: here.

Coram Man Dead After Struggle With Cops

High on cocaine, man locked himself in house before cops arrived

A 43-year-old Coram man died early this morning after struggling with Suffolk cops.

Police from the Sixth Precinct were called to 6 Petersburg Ct. in Coram at 2:46 a.m. after a man called 911 and reported his brother, Daryl Bain, was high on cocaine and had locked him out of his house…

A Taser was used, but Bain did not stop resisting. Eventually, the cops were able to subdue and handcuff Bain.

Shortly after, Bain stopped breathing. CPR was performed and Bain was taken to John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson, where he died a short time later.
