Richard Montero (5322)



4/9/2010: At 6:30 on a Friday morning two sheriff's deputies pounded on the side of a Ford Explorer, trying to wake the passed-out occupant, Montero. Once awake they decided to release him to his girlfriend rather than take him in. But when Montero realized his vehicle was to be towed, he became enraged, and violently struggled with the two. Tasers reportedly had no effect on him. The deputies, physically bested, fired five quick shots that killed the unarmed construction worker. http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2010-04-09/news/fl-west-palm-beach-shooting-20100409_1_stun-guns-deputies-law-enforcement-officer
