Troubled Woman Dies in Fairfax: Shot Four Times with a Taser After a Week in Isolation Cell

Can you imagine being arrested on a minor charge,  stripped naked and put into a solitary jail cell for a week with nothing in it?

Can you imagine being slapped in the head by a corrections officer because you didn’t comply with an order that you didn’t understand?

Can you image having five men dressed like Ninja warriors wearing football-like helmets with visors attempting to violently tie you to a chair?

Can you imagine voltage from a Taser being shot into your body not once, not twice, not three times, but four times until your body goes into cardiac arrest?

Can you imagine being rushed by EMTs to a hospital where your urine soaked body looks so horrific that the emergency room crew is sickened by what they witness?
