Man dies after being tasered by police, casino app public comment day, Latham building shut for "really horrible" conditions, Huck Finn's Playland?

Ballston Spa police say a man died Saturday night after being tasered by police. Police say they had responded to a call about a "suspicious and disorderly subject" and found Daniel Satre, who they said was combative with police. Police Satre was warned he was about to be stunned and when he didn't comply, he was tasered. Police said he was unresponsive after being tasered and was later pronounced dead at Saratoga Hospital. Said a neighbor of Satre's behavior: "It was like a switch (flipped) ... Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He was ranting and raving and making no sense at all." [News10] [TWCN] [Daily Gazette] [TU] [WNYT]

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.
