Autopsy concludes police restraints killed Winter Haven man; Winter Haven’s Adam Johnson died after repeated jolts from a Taser

Editor’s note: This story, about the death of a Florida man after he was subjected to four activations of an Electronic Control Weapon (ECW), including one lasting 31 seconds, states that a TASER International spokesman “disputes [PERF] findings about the length and number of shocks that are safe.” See also the related item in 3/16/12 Clips, a TASER memorandum from 2011.
