Fatal TASER incident sparks debate in Colo.
DENVER, Colo. — The death of a well-liked real estate agent who was zapped with a police Taser on Monday promises to renew a growing debate about the use of the less-lethal weapon.
When officers arrived, police say, Romero charged them, prompting a patrolman to fire his Taser. The shot sent a surge of electricity into Romero's body, sending him to the ground, according to Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson.
