A 26-year-old San Jose man died early today after he was zapped with a Taser by Campbell police who had been called to help quell a “disturbance” at Valley Medical Center apparently involving the man.

Santa Clara County Sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Don Morrissey did not identify the man, saying that the coroner had not yet given permission because his next of kin had not been properly notified.

Morrissey added that he didn’t have many details since the death was so recent, but what he did outline was this general scenario:

On Thursday about 11:20 p.m., a woman called 911 from Valley Medical Center saying that one of her relatives was involved in a “disturbance.” Sheriff’s deputies arrived to help and were able to “locate the parties involved,” Morrissey said.

Moments after they arrived, Morrissey said the deputies began to struggle with the 26-year-old man who was causing the disturbance.

Big Victories for Partnership for Working Families and Affiliates

Big Victories for Partnership for Working Families and Affiliates

Our friends at the Partnership for Working Families (PWF) and its affiliate organizations do amazing work. So it’s not surprising they are winning big victories – most recently in Pittsburgh and San Francisco, and hopefully another in San Jose this fall.

PWF affiliates work to ensure that low and middle income workers and communities share in the benefit of economic growth and development. Often, they campaign for community benefits agreements (CBAs) – legally binding contracts signed by developers and community coalitions that spell out a set of community benefits that the developer must provide as part of a development project.
