It is comforting to see officials do a thorough and lengthy investigation…

Jail staff cleared after N.S. man shot with Taser: officials

“Corrections officers followed proper procedures while Howard Hyde, the man who died a day after being jolted with a Taser by police, was in their custody, officials said Monday.”

….Hyde, 45, a paranoid schizophrenic, died Thursday morning at the Nova Scotia Correctional Facility in Dartmouth, 30 hours after police shocked him with a Taser to try to subdue him. The stun gun was used on Hyde at a police station where he was being booked on an assault charge.”

Today is Monday. The investigation was ordered Thursday afternoon.

The RCMP continue to investigate Hyde’s death.

Of course, the question of why someone suffering from Paranoid Schizophrenia was in jail and not in a mental health facility, I suppose, is silly.
