    TASER cleared again

    Stun gun didn’t cause death

    OSHKOSH, Wis. — A 42-year-old man who died last fall hours after police used an electric stun gun on him actually died from the effects of cocaine intoxication, the Winnebago County coroner has ruled.

    Barry Busby ruled Friday in the case of Marcus Roach-Burruss, who died last Sept. 17 about 13 hours after he a Taser was used on him following a disturbance at the Wal-Mart in Neenah.

    The coroner said the death was caused by excited delirium syndrome, which takes place when the heart races wildly from an abundance of adrenaline and finally gives out.

    Police have said they used the Taser on Roach-Burruss after he caused a disturbance and attacked three employees at the Wal-Mart.

    “The police didn’t do anything wrong,” Busby said.

    “Police acted in defense of protecting citizens, themselves and the decedent.”

    Neenah Police Chief Ray Appel said the officers involved previously had been cleared of any wrongdoing.

    So which was it? A stun gun or a taser?

    The taser is a great tool. I've only had to use one once so far and it worked great.

    So lay off, I'm offduty and spouting off.
