Joshua Salvato (6980)



7/6/2012: Salvato was stopped while walking alone on country road. Federal judge determined the female deputy had no cause to detain him, but she did and called for backup. After backup arrived, the deputies put Salvato face-down in grass, tried to handcuff him. He struggled, got loose and back-pedaled into road. Female deputy, not in danger, shot him. He was handcuffed and then tasered repeatedly until he bled to death. Grand jury sided with deputies. A civil wrongful death suit led to $2.3 million judgment against the Sheriff's office and deputies.
