Re: Iraq & Afghanistan veteran?
Has cause of death been established? As the BBC article states that he'd stabbed himself and a dog with a knife, the headline could just as accurately have been written as "Man dies after stabbing himself".
Until there's an autopsy, we really don't know if he died as a result of the taser, or a self-inflicted knife wound. So perhaps we shouldn't be making judgements based on what headline writers want us to think.
