SIU won't lay charges in case of Toronto man who died after he was Tasered 3 times

Ontario’s police watchdog says it has no reasonable grounds to charge a Toronto police officer involved in the death of Rui Nabico, who was Tasered and later pronounced dead in November 2016.

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) concluded that the deployment of the conducted energy weapon, better known as a Taser, was not a factor in the 31-year-old’s death.

The SIU’s decision is detailed in a lengthy and thorough investigative summary — part of a new public reporting initiative pushed for by the Toronto Star and recommended in a review of police oversight by Ontario Court of Appeal Justice Michael Tulloch.

The report — which includes a summary of the incident, a scene diagram, a comprehensive explanation of the analysis and decision and more — states that Nabico had cocaine in his system and was suffering from a heart muscle disease called cardiomyopathy.
