Blake Dupree, Tased by LA County Sherriffs, Spinal Cord Injury

Lt. James Tatreau Jr., a former driver and bodyguard for L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca, An LA County Sheriff who organized a game called "Operation Any Booking" in which deputies competed to see how many people they could arrest. Has been involved with something mote deadly.

As reported by Richard Winton and Scott Glover, Los Angeles Times Staff Writers "Los Angeles County sheriff's officials have launched a misconduct investigation of two supervisors who authorized the use of a stun gun on a 21-year-old arrestee because he was unruly and refused to submit to electronic fingerprinting, The Times has learned.

As a result of being shocked with a Taser, Blake Dupree fell off the top of a jail bunk bed and broke his back. The injury has left him temporarily paralyzed and he could be crippled for life, his attorney said.

According to sheriff's officials, Dupree, who showed signs of being mentally ill or under the influence of drugs, had been generally "uncooperative" for hours before a lieutenant at the Lakewood sheriff's station approved the use of the Taser, which delivers a 50,000-volt shock.

The investigation into the Feb. 27 incident -- much of it captured on videotape -- will determine whether use of the Taser violated department policy.

Department rules prohibit using the device on "persons in danger of falling or becoming entangled in machinery or heavy equipment which could result in death or serious bodily injury." Despite the prohibition, the policy does allow for supervisors to decide whether use of a Taser is warranted on a case-by-case basis.

Lt. James Tatreau Jr., who authorized the use of the device on Dupree, has been reassigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of the investigation, sources said. A unnamed sergeant who was involved in the decision has also been reassigned. More HERE

At the time of this report we are not sure if Blake Dupree is black or not. But as far as this publisher is concerned Black Dupree was treated like he was black, so he was in fact, "Tasered While Black."

Just one in four men with a spinal cord injury can achieve erections adequate for intercourse on their own, the researchers point out. Cialis, which like Levitra and Viagra, belongs to the class of drugs known as oral phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors that are the first-line treatment for erectile dysfunction, has shown promise in treating the condition in men with spinal cord injury. http://www.levitrabliss.com/

sufficient for his or his partner's sexual needs. Most men experience this at some point in their lives, usually
by age 40. Incidence of the disorder generally increases with age. ED affects about 5% of men in their 40s and
15-25% of men by the age of 65. 50% of men over the age of 40 may experience transient ED and inadequate erection.

Viagra is the medicine that is recommended by doctors worldwide for erectile dysfunction. It is the chemical composition of both forms of this drug and helps to cause erection on stimulation of the penis by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 which causes smooth muscle relaxation and a better erection.

Propecia is used to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate). Finasteride is also used to reduce hair loss due to male pattern baldness.
