From Springfield MO:

Joshua Amir Nossoughi, 32, of Springfield, died last July in a hospital about two hours after officers confronted him as he tried to break into the Battlefield city hall. During a long effort to catch and subdue him, Nossoughi was unfazed by five separate Taser shocks, pepper spray and two dozen baton strikes to his legs, The Springfield News-Leader reported (http://sgfnow.co/H97QAv).

Officers finally captured the 6-foot-4, 240-pound man and got him into an ambulance, but he was pronounced dead at a hospital. His body temperature was 105 degrees.

"Basically his temperature was too high to sustain life," Deputy Medical Examiner Tom Van De Berg said.

The autopsy found a compound called MDPV in Nossoughi's blood and liver.

    I'm sure the drugs are totally what killed him.

    If it was an interaction with what happened, sure, the drug bears responsibility. This one is similar to the one I posted before, so at present the interaction with unusual exertion and/or cardiac stress is being supported.

  • These "bath salts" are the shitte that people use instead of weed because weed is illegal?

  • Kaviani says:

    @Comradde - NO. They use that because they are addicted to very LEGAL amphetamine isomers and analogs in the name of ADHD/lazyasse parenting. Then they graduate to hardcore things like meth and this idiocy.

    "Incense" is what people use instead of real cannabis. Totally different league.

    Bath Salts: Catha Edulis::Methamphetamine:Ephedra sinica

    There is little support for this. See this and this from Biederman et alia and another from Mannuza et al. for starters.

    Nonmedical use of ADHD stimulant meds might be a factor in later use of street drug stimulants but your suggestion that prescribed medication for ADHD leads to nonmedical use is not supported.

    "and two dozen baton strikes to his legs"

    sounds like a questionable way to "subdue" someone.

    oh, are you in law enforcement too, Isabel? how would you feel about some flat foot telling you the right way to pipet some shitte?
