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.

"The exact cause of his death has not been determined."

2007 Dec. 29 RATON, N.M. — Two Tasers were fired 23 times in the case of a Raton man who died after city police used the Tasers to subdue him, state investigators said.

An autopsy found that Jesse Saenz was hit three times by Tasers.

The exact cause of his death has not been determined [...probably coincidental Excited Delirium... yeah, right...].

The officers using the Tasers said the devices malfunctioned [both of them? What an amazing coincidence...].

Saenz was struggling and fighting with police Nov. 18 as they attempted to take him into custody, authorities have said. Raton police Capt. Mike Galardi has said that officers had no choice but to use force to get Saenz under control.

Saenz died after being transported to the Colfax County jail [as opposed to the Colfax County HOSPITAL?].

Nothing to see here, move along...

Yeah right...
