Florida Teen Graffiti Artist's Death Caused By Taser: Family Wants Justice
Family and friends of the Miami graffiti artist who died after being tasered are calling for justice.
Friends of 18-year-old Israel Hernandez are angry with the report that the teen's death was ruled an accident.
Police say Hernandez was caught spraying graffiti last August along Collins Ave., in Miami then took off running when cops pulled up.
Moments later, officers caught up with Hernandez and used a taser to stop him.
After he collapsed he was rushed to the hospital and pronounced dead.
The teen's friends now want the state attorney's office to file charges against the officer who used the device.
