McNeil died in a hospital 16 days later due to brain damage from lack of oxygen, she said.According to the medical examiner’s office, a high level of methamphetamine in McNeil’s system could have been enough to cause his death. McNeil was agitated for two hours starting when he first came into contact with National City police officers in front of their headquarters, and that could have led to heart and respiratory failure, Stephan said.Stephan played a 55-minute compilation video of the events following McNeil’s arrest, including paramedics trying to revive him as they prepared to take him in for medical and psychological evaluation.Before playing the video for reporters, Stephan informed McNeil’s family that officers and deputies would not be facing criminal charges in connection with his death. She said they were respectful of her decision, calling them “extremely wonderful people.”McNeil’s death prompted a series of protests and arrests at city council meetings in National City in recent months.The events that led to the one-time gang member’s death began shortly before 5:30 a.m. May 26, when McNeil called the National City Police Department’s emergency-communications center from a telephone near the entrance to NCPD headquarters.“During his conversation with the dispatcher, McNeil requested to speak with an officer and made paranoid, threatening and irrational statements,” according to a statement from the agency. “When officers arrived to speak with McNeil, he was very agitated (and) paranoid and said he was in possession of a controlled substance.”In order to “de-escalate the situation,” officers handcuffed McNeil, the memo states. At that point, he allegedly began resisting and spitting at the personnel, prompting them to put him in maximum restraints and take him to San Diego Central Jail.“During the intake process with county jail staff, McNeil exhibited signs of medical distress, and NCPD officers called for paramedics,” according to police. “Paramedics responded and treated McNeil at the jail. McNeil was transported by paramedics to UCSD Medical Center for additional treatment.”McNeil died in the hospital on June 11.Stephan said McNeil was an informant for the District Attorney’s Office in the 2003 murders of two women and the wounding of a 7-year-old boy in the Dr. J’s liquor store shooting. McNeil — who had a substantial criminal record — was a witness in the case and the only benefit he received was relocation money for his family to move out of San Diego due to safety concerns, the county’s top prosecutor said.Warning: The video contains content and strong language that viewers may find disturbing.

Walmart Amazon Available in gray, pink or green, the Memobird is an adorable little thermal note-printer. Sarah Tew/CNET Can a printer be fun? It can when it’s a little internet-connected job that cranks out cute receipt-style notes and doesn’t need any ink. And don’t forget the fun of scoring it for the cheapest price anywhere, courtesy of yours truly.For a limited time, and while supplies last, ZDNet Academy has the Memobird mobile thermal printer for $48 when you apply promo code CNETMB20 at checkout. That’s an extra $12 off the current price, which is already $10 off Amazon’s price. Update: Apparently shipping is not included in the price. My apologies for the error.See it at ZDNet AcademyAvailable in your choice of three colors, the Memobird is compact and portable, though it does require AC power. It uses no ink, instead relying on the same thermal technology as most cash register receipts. So there are no pricey ink cartridges — instead, the only consumables here are the special paper rolls. Fortunately, they’re pretty cheap. Here’s an eight-roll supply for just $12.99, for example. And a three-pack of assorted colors for $9.99. If you want adhesive paper, you can get three rolls of that for $9.99 as well. Update: The 8-roll option is now showing a price of $27.99. I’m not sure why it jumped so suddenly — and significantly. Share your voice The printer connects to both your phone and the internet via Wi-Fi. That means you can print locally to it (reminders, shopping lists and so forth), but also share it with friends and family. I could see giving a Memobird to the grandparents, then having everyone in the family send little notes and greetings.The app lets you create notes very easily, complete with any mixture of text, stickers, doodles and photos. You can also install templates for things like memos, lists and labels.Now for the bad news: It may take as long as two weeks to arrive. (Current expected-delivery range is Feb. 17 to 20.)I must admit, I really like this little thing. I’d be less enamored with it at $70 (or even $80, which was the price at Amazon a few days ago), but $48 works for me.Your thoughts?last_img read more
