Another Taser Investigation
Jackson calls for investigation into death of man tasered by police
August 7, 2007 - Reverend Jesse Jackson plan to call on the Illinois attorney general to investigate the death of a South Side man who was tasered and pepper sprayed by police.
On Saturday, officers responded to a domestic disturbance call in the 8100-block of South Green Street. Investigators say Lula Johnson told them her 42-year-old son Geffery Johnson was damaging her property and she wanted him out of the house. Johnson then reportedly became combative and was tasered twice and pepper sprayed. He died a short time later.
Tuesday morning, Johnson's mother met with Reverend Jackson.
"They killed him right here. A 300 pound man, or more, put his knee on my baby's head, crushed his head," said Lula Johnson, mother.
"This is unacceptable, mean and abusive. Those officers involved in this killing must face the stiff law of justice," said Rev. Jesse Jackson, Operation PUSH.
Chicago Police say a preliminary investigation has determined officers were justified in tasering Johnson.
An autopsy on Johnson indicated further studies needed to be done." The hardest thing about disarming an armed suspect is not slipping on your own shit "
