17 Year Old Cousin of Mychal Bell Tasered To Death

Barron Scooter Collins, the first cousin of Mychal Bell (of the Jena6), was killed recently after being tasered 9 times over the course of a half hour, while in restraints and police custody.
His death certificate labels it a homicide.
Is this retaliation or coincidence?

Police Brutality Blog says:

Tasered While Black says: Why was it so important to say:

"The 21 year old Barron Scooter Collins, a convicted drug dealer. "

OK, so News Channel 5 says it has learned Collins birth name is Barron Pikes. And he was first cousin to Mychal Bell, of the Jena Six. Scooter died after being in police custody and being tased. The incident prompted over 100 blacks in Winnfield to protest downtown.

The Winn Parish Coroner, Dr. Randolph Williams, actually concluded his report 3 weeks ago and for the past 3 weeks News Channel 5 has been trying to get a copy of the report. Dr. Williams has refused to release anything to the media. But Radio Talk Show Host Tony Brown has provided News Channel 5 a copy of the death certificate. Tony Brown has been in close contact with Scooters relatives. The Pikes gave Brown the death certificate—and permission for him to give it to us.

Thankyou Word of Change.
