The family of the man who was Tasered by Baltimore City police while a patient in the hospital is not pleased with the most recent investigation results.
Marcus Washington spoke with the family’s attorney.
The attorney says after reviewing the investigation and speaking with a number of doctors, he thinks George King’s death is because he was Tased by police.
He walked into Good Samaritan Hospital on May 6 because of an allergic reaction to medication given to him by a dentist—but George King Jr. never walked out. His family says his death was in the hands of Baltimore City police’s actions.
“Officers are here to protect and serve. This case, this is not protect and serve,” said King’s mother.
An extensive investigation by the Baltimore City state’s attorney shows King began suffering from seizures and when hospital workers tried to move him to ICU, he refused and became combative, resulting in hospital personnel calling police. Once officers arrived, they ordered King to calm down but say he did not…resulting in King being Tased five times.
