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.

A very powerful and personal blog against Tasers

Link= Truth not Tasers

Personally, I'm just a normal, middle-class, Canadian that is disgusted beyond words and outraged beyond measure by the recent usages of Tasers on people in Canada. The approach being used has been inhuman and intolerable. It makes me cringe that good cops have gone bad. Anyone that cannot see the issue is blind.

The recent Kennedy report is a very good first step. I agree with it almost 100%, except there should be a ban on Tasers until the medical science is in (not the crap pseudo-science coming from the manufacturer and their sock-puppets).

For those that blindly and ignorantly think that Tasers are not a very bad thing, well the Kennedy report has taken a position that is virtually all the way towards a better (more Canadian) position. So there! Reasonableness is already being mandated by a cooler head. Now, why didn't this come from WITHIN the police force?

The blog linked above is well worth reading. It comes from people that have been directly impacted by the lies told by Taser, and the foolish police that believed them.
