Mission Statement - De-Spinning the Pro-Taser Propaganda

Yeah right, 'Excited Delirium' my ass...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The primary purpose of this blog is to provide an outlet for my observations and analysis about tasers, taser "associated" deaths, and the behaviour exhibited by the management, employees and minions of Taser International. In general, everything is linked back to external sources, often via previous posts on the same topic, so that readers can fact-check to their heart's content. This blog was started in late-2007 when Canadians were enraged by the taser death of Robert Dziekanski and four others in a short three month period. The cocky attitude exhibited by the Taser International spokespuppet, and his preposterous proposal that Mr. Dziekanski coincidentally died of "excited delirium" at the time of his taser-death, led me to choose the blog name I did and provides my motivation. I have zero financial ties to this issue.

Crazy...

Link= An article that has many examples of complete insanity

One of the people making any sense in this article is Alex Neve, Amnesty's secretary general. "It's gaining credence as a well-documented [sic] and established [sic] medical condition, that people walking around on the streets are likely to drop dead at any moment of excited delirium. That's clearly not the case."

Also, Dr. Eugene Crystal, an electrophysiologist at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, believes a Taser could cause arrhythmia. "The amount of energy Taser uses may cause the heart to contract inappropriately," he says.

All the arguments on the other side are completely insane. Have a read if you can stand it.
