Excited Delirium: Fact or Fiction?
There is a lot of talk among law enforcement and a few medical examiners, who choose to explain the deaths of, (sad to say), mostly men of color, while in police custody with the term “Excited Delirium”. But what exactly does this mean? Well, you will not find this term in a medical dictionary because not even the American Medical Association has recognized this as an actual medical condition. But, to hear some medical examiners tell it, anyone who is high on cocaine, methamphetamines, is highly intoxicated, etc.
