But this may well be charged as manslaughter by the state, and a violation of civil rights by the Feds.

Dumb cops for sure, clearly violating all kinds of procedures....
The firing seems appropriate as the former officer used unauthorized techniques. If the death is attributed to those unauthorized techniques (which would seem likely) then he should be tried and if found guilty spend a lot of time behind bars, not only to ponder his mistakes but to give pause to other cops.
