Stephen Palmer (5153)



12/30/2009: Palmer was a patient at a state-run mental health center. Police were called in when he became "unruly". Initially cooperative, Palmer resisted arrest, was pepper-sprayed without result, and somehow managed to wound five officers before being fatally tasered. Police were well aware of Palmer's history of mental illness. http://www.ctpost.com/news/article/Man-dies-after-being-Tasered-by-Stamford-police-304114.php
