AMHERST Justice Minister Cecil Clarke is not going to intervene in a review of Taser use being conducted by the Amherst Police Department following their use on a patient in medical distress.

“Everything I’m aware of is it (fell) within the standards and the department is doing its followup and due diligence on the matter,” Clarke said.

The minister’s comments come a few days after Amherst Police confirmed officers used a Taser on a man in diabetic shock who was resisting treatment by paramedics.
