Review of taser use on diabetic continues

October 3, 2008
The Amherst Citizen

AMHERST – Amherst Police are continuing their review into an incident in which a 34-year-old man was tasered while receiving treatment for diabetic shock.

Deputy Chief Ian Naylor is unsure how long the review will take or whether its findings will be publicized, but suggested the results of the review — which takes place every time a Taser is used — will be thorough and will look at how it was used in this instance.

An unidentified woman spoke out against the use of Tasers after her husband was shocked by a police officer on Sept. 14.
