Description

WTIU-TV investigated the November 2003 death of James Borden, an inmate at the Monroe County Indiana Jail in Bloomington. Borden died during his booking. Just after his death, the jail revealed that officers had used a TASER device on him during the booking process because he was being "combative." Between his death and the air date of the story, there had been no disciplinary action taken against the officers, no charges filed in the case, and no ruling from any authority on whether or not the officers acted appropriately.
