[Chattanooga Times Free Press Report exonerates Soddy-Daisy police officer in Taser-related death](http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/2009/may/08/report-exonerates-soddy-daisy-police-officer-taser/?breakingnews) .

Officer Daniels then deployed her Taser seven times, stunning him in the left thigh/leg area, left upper arm and underneath his left arm, according to the report. Following the stuns, Mr. Redden remained combative and uncooperative. He then was handcuffed to the stretcher, according to the report.

The officer tried to shock the man 7 times – imagine getting that type of voltage running through your system just once or twice. How can that NOT be excessive force? Before the Taser, the man was just a naked medical case. The main issue, is that he’s dead after the Taser.
