Stop tasering of people especially emotional disturbed ones. Dainell was only 29 and killed in the Maryhaven Center of Hope in Middle Island, NY on July 24, 2013.

I would like to inform you that an autistic man named Dainell Simmons was killed by Suffolk police yesterday July 24, 2013 at a group home, Maryhaven Center of Hope in Middle Island, NY.  He was tasered twice and pepper sprayed and died at the hospital shortly after.  Please pass this information on. This deceased, at the hands of police, disabled man needs a voice. Thank you.

Dear American Citizens,


This petiton is to tell our law makers that tasers need to be outlawed especially when dealing with EDP or other health compromised individual including children, elderly, or disabled.  Actually since no one can tell, tasers are a big risk to even seemingly healthy individuals. We can't tell who has a heart condition or seizure disorder. None of these individuals come with a doctor's note.


PLEASE SHARE. That's the only way to get signatures. This could be any of us or our kids.

This deceased, at the hands of police, disabled man needs a voice. It could be any of us at the mercy of a taser. Thank you.









































































































































































































































































































































































































































































We need to outlaw the use of tasers on individuals because many have died as a result. It could be anyone's child and infact it was someone's child who died as a result of misuse of taser. Thank you for your support. Dainell Simmons RIP.
