(Opelika-Auburn News)   Naked, covered in scratches, going into houses and threatening people, getting tased to no effect and fighting with the cops for ten minutes is a good way to... die. This will be an interesting toxicology report   ( oanow.com) divider line

But yes, bath salts and/or PCP.

Could be wet. Kind of old-school, but formaldehyde-laced pot causes the same symptoms and would be easier to get.

True story: Wet = PCP, not formaldehyde

The trouble is, like all these kinds of stories, is 100% of what we know comes from the police report.

As we've been seeing in Seattle, police regularly fabricate and distort reports, omit details. Of particular question is how police do or don't use "de-escalation" techniques prior to going into full take-down mode, because the default assumption in the report is police were reasonable and civil throughout the engagement. Such as we've been seeing is quite often not the case.

On-body cameras that sent data to an independent server would exonerate the (presumably majority) of police while also serving to assist prosecutions, and also ensure that police were given appropriate training when escalations did go beyond procedure.

The police union in Seattle fights this request frequently, and the "blue line" has set up to prevent any police accountability other than facile and after-the-fact, a one-person "oversight board" with limited authority.

// Not a cop hater, but at this point all police reports are suspect. Ample evidence exists that police often fabricate them and omit key facts. Get cameras on police and fix it.
