On page 3 of the Oregonians (2-4-06) metro section a story tells of an OSU student who took an overdose of sleeping aids.
The cops, on being asked by his parents to check up on him as they were concerned he was suicidal smashed down his door and used a stun gun on him ('to subdue him')!
Surely if he had taken so many sleep aids who would have been very drowsy if not dead already.
The unfortunate student Nick Hanson, 24, died from the sleeping aid, according to a toxicology report.
Is a stun gun the way cops help out?
It seems one should never ask the cops to help, whether its Sandy, Portland or Ashland.
