Bodybuilder dies after police blast him three times with a Taser gun

(DAILY MAIL)   A bodybuilder is believed to be the first person in Britain to have died from a police Taser after officers shot him three times with the powerful 50,000-volt gun.

Father-of-two Dale Burns, 27, was confronted by up to eight officers after they were called to reports of a disturbance at his bedsit in a block of flats.

He was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage but when he refused to calm down officers used pepper spray before one fired at him three times in quick succession.

His death reopened the debate on the controversial use of Tasers amid calls for a radical overhaul of their use.

Human rights group Amnesty International said the weapon, introduced in the UK in 2004, should only ever be used in situations where there is a ‘very real threat of loss of life’.
