    Police: Pastor of North Texas church killed

    Authorities say a North Texas pastor died after a man drove his car into the church and attacked the pastor with an electric guitar.

    Dennis identified the pastor as the Rev. Danny Kirk, Sr. He said Kirk died at the scene.

    Police used a Taser to detain the suspect, who was not identified. The suspect was found unresponsive shortly afterward and later was pronounced dead.
    Seriously. Only in Texas.

    I wonder if he was still holding the guitar when the police used the taser on him? If he was, did it turn him into an amplifier?

    I feel bad for the pastor. I guess rock 'n roll really does kill.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    That sounds insane... and he died from a taser? So much for non-lethal.

    I've always wondered what happens if you don;t release the trigger. I have a huge stun baton at home and I've promised myself that once they go down, I stop and call 911. But if they, say, had hurt a cat - I might keep firing until my battery died. Can you breathe when you get continuous shocks?

    seems the initial assault was upon the janitor outside the church
    only after that did the person drive his vehicle into the church and attack the pastor in the music room

    Its not a trigger issue. The Taser C2 that most police use will not stop shocking your target for a full minute. They're designed to incapacitate, and then you drop it and run leaving the target incapped for a minute. Taser will then send you another.

    Apparently some people don't get fazed by the tazor especially if they are crazy or strung out or both. Not sure why.

    More good info. I don't expect to confront a crazy person, just a burglar so hopefully it will work. I've only had one occasion to use it and the guy ran like hell when the thing sparked and popped.
