The Taser Part of the story.
October 3, 2018 Millbrae, California Chinedu Okobi died In-Custody of Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees. Not Five.
October 15, 2018 San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said “Two Deputies used their tasers multiple times and Okobi died.” That’s 12 days the DA has had the facts.
October 17, 2018 Senior Inspector Bill Massey receives the AXON data for the Tasers from Sergeant Bob Pronske. It shows 7 deployments from Deputy Wang’s Taser 6 with full 5 seconds discharges and the 7th with a 4 second discharge. So that is 1 Deputy with 7 activations.
Now add at some unknown date Rick Decker who’s boss is Inspector Bill Massey and he changes the story to a few activations.
So we went from Two Deputies to One Deputy with 7 activations, to One Deputy with a few activations.
How does this information keep changing?
All reports can be found pages 53-54 on the District Attorney’s website.
