Federal Judge Considers Motions in Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Bangor over Use of Taser

A federal judge took under advisement motions to dismiss portions of a lawsuit filed by the father of a man who died after Bangor police used a stun gun to subdue him during an arrest. Michael McCue of Jackson in March sued the City of Bangor, six police officers and Taser International Inc., over the death of his son, Phillip A. McCue. He died at a local hospital five days after he was shocked with a Taser on Sept. 2012, the night police responded to a noise complaint at 18 First St. and McCue took off running. Bangor police have said McCue was out of control. The autopsy report stated he died as a result of complications from overdosing on the street drug bath salts. U.S. Magistrate Judge John Nivison held a hearing on the motions in federal court in Bangor. There is no timetable under which he must issue a decision. Taser International Inc. of Scottsdale, Arizona, has asked Nivison to dismiss it from the lawsuit. Roy Pierce, the Portland attorney representing the Arizona firm, argued in his motion that Taser's product warnings are 'adequate as a matter of law to warn about the risk of injury or death on susceptible individuals who exhibit signs of agitation or excited delirium'.

The first order includes 100 cameras and a five-year subscription to as the backend digital evidence management system as well as several docking stations that will allow officers to automatically charge and upload the their video footage after each shift. During a one-year pilot program where the Mesa Police Department tested 50 of TASER's AXON Flex cameras they found that officers equipped with the on-officer body cameras experienced a 40% decrease in complaints and a 75% decrease in use of force complaints. TASER's AXON cameras are small, yet highly visible, and can be attached securely to sunglasses, a cap, a shirt collar, or a head mount. When recording, the cameras capture a wide-angle, full-color view of what an officer is facing. The video automatically uploads to, where it can be easily accessed for review. An end-user cannot tamper with the video files stored online or on the AXON video camera.
