Police video and news story
THESE are the harrowing last momentsof Roberto Laudisio Curti's life, captured on dramatic video from the Taser which brings him crashing to the ground after a chase through city
A single shot to the back downs the Brazilian student, who had
earlier been celebrating St Patrick's Day with friends, as he flees as
many as half a dozen chasing police. He is then tasered a second
time while officers hold him on the ground, where the 21-year-old is
subjected to more stuns with the weapon and bursts of capsicum spray.
A short time later he is rolled on to his back with foam coming from the
mouth - not breathing and never to regain consciousness. Five
Taser probes were stuck in Mr Curti's skin and officers tried to use
the weapon on him 14 times, although several of the strikes were
ineffective, an inquest into his death heard.
