Another African American Killed by Police Taser in California

Barely one week after the killing of a young Africa American by police in Missouri, another incidence has been reported in San Bernardino, California. A 36-year-old married father of five from California died after being repeatedly Tasered by San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies during what was described as an attempted burglary.

Deputies on Tuesday used a stun gun on Dante Parker during an altercation to take him into custody. Officers suspected Parker of breaking into a home in Victorville. 
According to law enforcement officials, deputies found Parker riding a bicycle away from the residence and tried to stop him, but the hulking man appeared to be under the influence of unknown substances and was belligerent.
