  • Caught On Camera: Woman Goes Into Cardiac Arrest During Traffic Stop
    Jones is lucky to be alive It s really critically important that law officers understand that this TASER is a weapon and it can kill people said Magliato who also serves as president of the American Heart Association for greater Los Angeles Magliato told CBS2 s Randy Paige It s awfully hard Randy exonerate the TASER when you see a woman who clearly was fine up until the point she was TASERed and then becomes unconscious loses her pulse and then is in sudden cardiac death The video camera recorded the episode for 40 minutes It s likely the most complete record of the events leading up to a cardiac arrest following the use of a TASER electronic control device However it wasn t the first time a similar incident was captured on video In March 2008 store security cameras in Charlotte North Carolina captured 17 year old Darryl Turner as police deployed a TASER model X 26 and electrocuted him following an argument with a store manager The teenager collapsed just off camera and later died Pasadena attorney John Burton represented the Turner family in a civil trial where the jury awarded 10 million in damages He is now preparing a lawsuit on behalf of Jones This device the TASER as it s called is much more dangerous than the company indicates and that police believe especially when it s shot in the chest the electric current can take over the heart rhythm and cause cardiac arrest Burton said TASER International disputes this claim on their website There is no reliable published data that proves TASER ECDs negatively affect the heart TASER International refers to medical studies that conclude its devices do not harm the heart Nonetheless the company changed its targeting guidelines in 2009 urging users to avoid strikes to the chest Dr Magliato strongly disagreed with TASER International s findings Absolutely not absolutely not Magliato said We have an article right here from circulation which comes out of one of the most prestigious cardiovascular journals in the country that s put out by the American Heart Association This article discusses eight cases eight cases where people were TASERed went into this ventricular fibrillation rhythm seven of which died so how can you tell me that using a TASER is completely benign especially when you have it on videotape Jones attorney Maria Cavalluzzi said her client now has many memory deficits and cognitive issues after the incident Cavalluzzi would only let Jones speak briefly due to the pending criminal charges but the Studio City resident spoke just long enough to describe what little she remembers from the night of the traffic stop Do you remember what it felt like when that TASER hit Paige said I can remember fear Jones said Cavalluzzi said toxicology reports show there were no illegal drugs or alcohol in Jones system that night Jones is facing criminal misdemeanor charges for resisting arrest and an infraction for possession of less than one ounce of

  • The 'creepy' mannequin that spies on you: Shops use dummies fitted with airport security to profile customers
    video profiling of customers is not new Almax claims its offering is better at providing data because it stands at eye level with customers who are more likely to look directly at the mannequins The video surveillance mannequins have been on sale for almost a year and are already being used in three European countries and in the U S Almax claims information from the devices led one outlet to adjust window displays after they found that men shopping in the first two days of a sale spent more than women while another introduced a children s line after the dummy showed youngsters made up more than half its afternoon traffic A third retailer placed Chinese speaking staff by a particular entrance after it found a third of visitors using that door after 4pm were Asian Almax chief executive Max Catanese refused to name which retailers were using the new technology telling Bloomberg that confidentiality agreements meant he could not disclose the names of clients But he did reveal that five companies among them leading fashion brands are using a few dozen of the mannequins with orders for at least that many more Almax is now hoping to update the technology to allow the mannequins and by extension the retailers who operate them to listen in on what customers are saying about the clothes on display Mr Catanese told Bloomberg the company also plans to add screens next to the dummies to prompt passers by about products that fit their profile similar to the way online retailers use cookies to personalise web browsing Almax insists that its system does not invade the privacy of shoppers since the camera inside the mannequin is blind meaning that it does not record the images of passers by instead merely collecting data about them

  • Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrants
    a subpoena is required not a search warrant signed by a judge based on probable cause Permits state and local law enforcement to warrantlessly access Americans correspondence stored on systems not offered to the public including university networks Authorizes any law enforcement agency to access accounts without a warrant or subsequent court review if they claim emergency situations exist Says providers shall notify law enforcement in advance of any plans to tell their customers that they ve been the target of a warrant order or subpoena Delays notification of customers whose accounts have been accessed from 3 days to 10 business days This notification can be postponed by up to 360 days One person participating in Capitol Hill meetings on this topic told CNET that Justice Department officials have expressed their displeasure about Leahy s original bill The department is on record as opposing any such requirement James Baker the associate deputy attorney general has publicly warned that requiring a warrant to obtain stored e mail could have an adverse impact on criminal investigations Marc Rotenberg head of the Electronic Privacy Information Center said that in light of the revelations about how former CIA director David Petraeus e mail was perused by the FBI even the Department of Justice should concede that there s a need for more judicial oversight not less An aide to the Senate Judiciary committee told CNET that because discussions with interested parties are ongoing it would be premature to comment on the legislation Markham Erickson a lawyer in Washington D C who has followed the topic closely and said he was speaking for himself and not his corporate clients expressed concerns about the alphabet soup of federal agencies that would be granted more power There is no good legal reason why federal regulatory agencies such as the NLRB OSHA SEC or FTC need to access customer information service providers with a mere subpoena If those agencies feel they do not have the tools to do their jobs adequately they should work with the appropriate authorizing committees to explore solutions The Senate Judiciary committee is really not in a position to adequately make those determinations The list of agencies that would receive civil subpoena authority for the contents of electronic communications also includes the Federal Reserve the Federal Trade Commission the Federal Maritime Commission the Postal Regulatory Commission the National Labor Relations Board and the Mine Enforcement Safety and Health Review Commission Leahy s modified bill retains some pro privacy components such as requiring police to secure a warrant in many cases But the dramatic shift especially the regulatory agency loophole and exemption for emergency account access likely means it will be near impossible for tech companies to support in its new form A bitter setback This is a bitter setback for Internet companies and a liberal conservative libertarian coalition which had hoped to convince Congress to update the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act to protect documents stored in the cloud Leahy glued those changes onto
