We’re barely into the new year & we have another headline fail – “Man ID’d in Colton Police TASER Death.” We all agree this is a tragic outcome to an incident that occurred Sunday but the investigation is ongoing. A cause of death hasn’t been determined. To simply infer that the TASER deployment is to blame for this man’s death is irresponsible as there are no facts to support this relationship at this time. The media likes sensationalistic but misleading headlines.
We’ve contacted KTLA but they’ve chosen to disregard our request for a headline correction & continue with their misleading headline.
