Did police shoot this man four times THEN Taser him? Marksmen accused of shocking man as he lay in a pool of blood
(DAILY MAIL) Police marksmen were accused last night of Tasering a man as he lay grievously wounded in the street after they had shot him four times with live bullets.
Witnesses claim they heard one of the 50,000 volt stun guns being discharged after George Asare, 25, collapsed in a pool of blood.
One claimed officers repeatedly kicked the suspected knifeman on the ground as they surrounded him in a chaotic confrontation.
Medical evidence has emerged that one of at least four Taser shots hit him in the groin, something his family believe was deliberate. Last night they demanded answers.
His mother, Elizabeth Benin, said: ‘Why wasn’t there a stand-off? I want to know why the police did not try to talk to George.
‘George is not a bad person, he is a good person but he was not well, I don’t understand why they had to shoot him. I just thank God that he was not killed.’
