How much difference is there between "I thought it was my Taser" and "I thought my Taser wouldnt kill" ?



A 64-year-old man died at a hospital one week ago after officers pepper sprayed and Tased him during an arrest attempt at an east Tulsa motel.

Ollie Lee Brooks was pronounced dead at Oklahoma State University Medical Center after an ambulance transported him from the Super 8 Motel at 1011 S. Garnett Road, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Officers went to the motel at 6:19 p.m. to search the register for guests with outstanding warrants, police spokesman Leland Ashley said. They found that Brooks — who was wanted in Okmulgee County — was staying there.
Two officers went to his room, knocked on the door and, when Brooks answered, reportedly saw drug paraphernalia “in plain sight,” the affidavit states.
Police entered the room to arrest Brooks, and he “immediately resisted arrest by actively fighting officers,” according to the report.
An officer initially used oleoresin capsicum spray — pepper spray — in an attempt to get him to comply so they could put handcuffs on him, but it didn’t “have the desired effect” and Brooks continued to resist arrest, the affidavit states.
After that, the officer used a Taser on Brooks, who “continued to fight,” according to the document. Then Brooks was Tased a second time and “ceased his attempts to fight the officers,” according to the affidavit.
“EMSA got there, cleaned him up, removed the (Taser) prongs from him,” Ashley said.
An ambulance took Brooks to OSU Medical Center, where he later lost consciousness and died, the affidavit states. He was pronounced dead at 8:59 p.m.

The two officers involved in the arrest — Larry Crawford and Barry Hamm — were placed on paid leave following Brooks’ death, although Crawford was the officer who deployed both the spray and the Taser, Ashley said.
A warrant was filed four days later to search the hotel room for firearms, ammunition, fingerprints, blood, evidence of Taser deployment, evidence of pepper spray deployment, prescription medications, illegal drug paraphernalia, among other items.
The affidavit for the search warrant says investigators were searching for evidence of the altercation between Brooks and the officers, as well as evidence related to Brooks’ death.
No outside agencies, such as the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, were involved in the investigation, Ashley said.

The Okmulgee warrant was from 1991 and was never prosecuted.


A reporter asked the police chief if his department should have notified the media or public that a suspect’s death occurred after a physical encounter that included use of force — even if determined to be a medical issue.

“In hindsight after today, yeah, I probably would. Yes sir,” Jordan said.

The World reported Wednesday that Brooks was wanted on an Okmulgee County warrant, as online court records indicate. However, Jordan on Friday said officers actually matched Brooks to a 2015 city of Tulsa warrant. The department’s online warrant search indicates the warrant was for jaywalking.

Police spokeswoman Officer Jeanne MacKenzie said “A warrant’s a warrant” 

...and we will kill you over an old jaywalking ticket.
