- Young men who die suddenly after being arrested by the police may be victims of a new syndrome similar to one that kills some wild animals when they are captured, Spanish researchers said on Tuesday.

Sounds like a good way to kill people and get away with it.

The 'bad guys' are very good at coming up with cover-up stories and the sheeple are too busy trying to pay bills to take the time to look into anything that is presented to them as 'news'.

maybe they should learn how to obey the law. It really isn't that difficult. the problem with the age group they described is they are a bunch of spoilt brats who thinks the world should kiss their's. basically self centered jerks.

It's called the "Ooops, I just swallowed four ounces of methamphetamines in a leaky baggy" Syndrome.

Thats a good call on that to Josheph, so many do swallow drugs before being arrested. But the story that their claiming and the syndrome doesn't have anything to do with that. They are trying to say it's the bodies natural reaction, so thats 2 different reasons. But alot do die due to a case of OD.

I normally don't post comments, but this was just disturbing. I don't think it really matters what a person has done, it is not a police officer's job to punish that person, let the court system do its job. This story sounds like nothing more than an excuse. I don't think it can be blamed on one generation either. Declaring war on an entire generation does nothing more than support the reasons young people today may get involved in crime. If you turn your back on them, unfortunately they are going to return the favor.

Maybe we should want to KNOW why and how someone suddenly dies while being arrested???

Yeah, OK, I REALLY believe that a young person got so "stressed" due to being arrested that he/she dies. That is such a crock...or should I say "CROOKED GOVERNMENT"? When are people going to wake up and realize that our government doesn't give 2-craps about us, and we allow them to literally get away with MURDER.
Thanks Todd for posting this... certainly very interesting.

I suppose that's one way of explaining it for the gullible.

It's sad some people die this way, but what is the alternative? You can't just not arrest criminals for fear they will die of stress. That would cause our cities to become crime ridden, which will cause everyone stress.
