Oklahoma Cops Charged With Murder After Using Tasers 'More Than 50 Times' on Victim

Two cops from Wilson, Oklahoma have been charged with murder for using their tasers "more than 50 times" on a 28-year-old man who ultimately died.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said that Wilson Police Department officers Joshua Taylor and Brandon Dingman were responding to a call regarding Jared Lakey shortly before midnight on July 4 when they used their tasers. Per a press release, a Carter County deputy is said to have also arrived on the scene and assisted the charged officers in getting Lakey into custody. Shortly after, Lakey stopped breathing and became unresponsive, at which point he was taken to a nearby hospital. He died on July 6 at OU Medical Center in Oklahoma City.

Arrest warrants were issued for Taylor and Dingman on July 1 of this year, with both officers turning themselves in on charges of second-degree murder. They were both given bond of $250,000 and have since bonded out.

As noted in court documents cited in a CBS News report, the extreme use of tasers by the officers now charged with murder "greatly exceeded what would have been necessary or warranted." Furthermore, the use of the tasers was determined to have been a "substantial factor" in Lakey's death.

2. That means the had to reload multiple times.

I believe a taser can only fire 3 times.

9. I thought a taser was only good for two shots...?

That was on a CBS story a couple weeks ago after the shooting in Atlanta where a taser was involved. CBS even had the taser manufacturer on to explain that.

So...?
