Alvin Itula (3187)

4/21/2006: When two uninformed local officers in an anti-gang unit stopped at Itula's house in the evening, he took off running. They caught the unarmed man, physically restrained him on the ground, and tasered him 4 to 5 times. According to his wife, when he complained of not being able to breathe, an officer said, "If you can talk, you can breathe." Contrary to initial reports they had no warrant for his arrest.
