Cops Kill Man For Not Standing Up On Command

Jul. 02, 2014

SOUTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne has obtained new details about a death investigation involving a man stunned by a Taser while in police custody.

[...]a GBI investigation determined:

Towns was stunned by a Taser at least three times, even though he told East Point Police he was tired and asked them to let him catch his breath before standing up.

According to Winne's source, the report said Towns handcuffed at the time he was stunned each time and though he had earlier led police on a foot chase after a domestic incident, Towns was not resisting when he was stunned with the Taser.

Police officer statements indicate he was stunned because he would not stand up at the direction of officers not because of any combativeness.
