No less than lethal

A rather interesting case in the UK,

A man who was threatening police officers was shot with a stun gun, then inflicted an injury on himself before fleeing the scene into his house, where he was found injured.
He died in the hospital.

An investigation will hopefully clarify the events (yeah right), did he cut himself as he was convulsing, or was the tazer shock innefective at incapacitating him?

Brittish police maintain that shocking people with stun guns have no adverse effects on them, despite the hundreds of fatalities recorded worldwide so far.

Coincidentally, this man who was shot with a real gun that same day, has a real chance of surviving.
