Illinois man dies after being tasered

Marcus D. Moore, 40, unarmed

Excited-Delirium.com shows us how police in Illinois use a taser as judge and jury. In the case of Marcus D. Moore, it's also a handy executioner.

We have new information tonight about the Freeport man hospitalized after being tasered by police. The Winnebago County coroner says 40-year-old Marcus D. Moore has died from his injuries. Freeport Police say Moore was wanted for robbery. When they tracked him down Thursday night, they say he fought with authorities, causing them to use the stun gun. Shortly after, Moore complained of being unable to breathe. He was taken to Rockford Memorial Hospital and was later pronounced dead. Police think Moore was on drugs at the time of his arrest and that taser use was warranted. They won't say whether the responding offer will be reprimanded. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

No one has ever been hurt from tazer's unless they are on drugs!! The drugs cause the person's heart rate to rise and may have drastic effects on the person. Drugs are also illegal and was fighting with the cops, so he deserved to get shot. It just so happened that he was probobly on drugs and deserved it.
