They were taking him into protective custody..then set him on fire. 45 days in ICU then he died.
I don't know which are the bigger idiot. The cops or the dude. Here is the story:
The New York attorney general's office is investigating an incident in which a man died weeks after catching fire when police tased him while he was covered in hand sanitizer, new videos released on Friday by the attorney general's office show.
In the video dated October 30, 2021 -- which was released without audio -- a man identified as 29-year-old Jason Jones is seen interacting with two police officers in the lobby of the Catskill Police Department in Greene County, New York.
Jones appears to be agitated in his interactions with the officers, and at one point taking off his sweater and ripping his shirt off while pacing around the lobby and trying to open a door, the video shows. More than halfway through the video, a third officer walks into the lobby and all four men are seen speaking together while a shirtless Jones continues to pace around the lobby.
Jones is seen squirting what appears to be hand sanitizer on his head and shirtless body. Jones then goes off screen, at which point one of the officers is seen pointing a Taser at him and then deploys his weapon. Jones is engulfed in flames and then falls to the floor as all of the officers exit the lobby, leaving Jones alone in the room and on fire.
Nearly 14 seconds later, one of the officers returns to help Jones, just after Jones' hair catches fire and burst in flames and his head is seen engulfed. A stretcher is brought in approximately 15 minutes later, according to the video, and Jones is then seen wheeled out of the lobby.
Jones spent 45 days at a Syracuse hospital ICU before dying from his injuries on December 15, 2021, said his attorney Kevin Luibrand. Jones went to the station after an earlier incident, attorney says Jones was drinking at a bar half a block from the police station before the incident, according to Luibrand. Things had gotten a bit rowdy while Jones was at the bar and police asked him to leave.
"Jason didn't like the way the officers handled the situation at the bar so he went down to the police station to talk about it," Luibrand explained. "Jason was clearly having an emotional issue when he was at the police station lobby," Luibrand said. "He was not harming anyone or threatening anyone."
The police officers knew Jones because it was a small town, Luibrand said. Jones was a star athlete at his high school in the Catskills and a sectional champion for shot put and discus, he said.
"He was a highly regarded guy and comes from a working-class family," Luibrand said, adding he was working at a local store where he helped sell and deliver tents for outdoor events at the time of the incident.
Most effective hand sanitizers used to prevent the spread of germs and viruses contain ethyl alcohol, a highly flammable liquid that "readily evaporates at room temperature into an ignitable vapor," according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Although the CDC says the likelihood of hand sanitizer catching on fire is low (like the risk of the covid vax? - JC), the Taser employed by the Catskill police officer likely ignited the hand sanitizer solution that Jones was seen putting on his head and body and set his body on fire.
JC - And why was the big jug of hand sanitizer there? Because of fake ass covid. Covid kills in so many ways. What kind of a retard tazes someone who just put a flammable gel on themselves? He no doubt sucked it into his lungs and burned himself inside out. Horrible way to go.
I also found this statement by the Chief of Police:
"I think they were afraid he was going to hurt himself, and that's what started it,"
Well now...your boys beat him to it didn't they?
Jason Jones, 29, died on Dec. 15 at a hospital in Syracuse after spending six weeks in a medically-induced coma. He died after spending 47 days on a ventilator because his lungs were so badly burned he couldn’t absorb oxygen.
