  •  Based on site below, that would be involuntary (0+ / 0-)

    manslaughter in California: http://www.shouselaw.com/...

    However, I don't think the Grant case meets the definition.

    California Penal Code 192(b) PC defines "involuntary manslaughter" as an unlawful killing that takes place

    during the commission of an unlawful act (not amounting to a felony), or

    during the commission of a lawful act which involves a high risk of death or great bodily harm that is committed without due caution or circumspection.3

    I don't think a cop tasing someone meets either definition.
