Deaths in police custody a 'new syndrome'

According to this Reuters report:

"Young men who die suddenly after being arrested by the police may be victims of a new syndrome similar to one that kills some wild animals when they are captured, Spanish researchers said on Tuesday.

"Manuel Martinez Selles of Madrid's Hospital Gregorio Maranon reached the conclusion after investigating 60 cases of sudden unexplained deaths in Spain following police detention."

Right... so nothing to do with the tazers, choke holds, savage beatings etc?
