The last minutes of Marvin Booker's life. This video shows five Denver Sheriff deputies wrestling Marvin Booker, a 56 year-old, 135lb homeless street preacher, to the ground. One uses a carotid artery "sleeper" choke hold, while others kneel on him. Eventually, he is Tasered for 8 seconds by a deputy holding the Taser against his leg in the "drive stun" mode. In this mode, the Taser does not "short circuit" the victim's muscles, as it does when it fires the darts, but rather creates excruciating pain.
