l spoke to Daniel (tasered man)'s Mom. She said when the cops arrived Daniel was outside, calm at the time... The cops said something and Daniel said "Leave me alone," and backed away from the cops saying "Leave me alone, I am scared."
Please encourage the family to request an independent autopsy and for the body to be PRESERVED.
When the system tells a grieving family that they have 'this' many days to cremate or bury, the grieving family usually does it quick and has to rally together the money to pay for it. PLEASE tell them that they are entitled, if they request and notice the coroner, to an independent forensics testing (not sure how to pay for it, but it would be a forensic pathologist that the family chooses) and that should halt the "destruction" of Daniel's body.
Also, they should work on not allowing the body to be destroyed so that if or when they sue , there is a body to examine. OFTEN, the coroner's reports (including toxicology) do NOT match up with 1) the injuries that parents have seen on their dead children's bodies and 2) the substances that persons had in them prior to death (i.e. nicotine, marijuana)
