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.

Will Taser issue a press release on this one?

Link= Suspect Tasered 11 Times In 25 Minutes
Video Link= Suspect Tasered 11 Times

"...His attorney says Flueret was stripped of his pants, strapped to a chair, handcuffed, tasered repeatedly..."

If Taser would simply issue a press release distancing themselves from such misuse of their product, it would be the first small step on the long road to recovering their moral standards. Just a little press release stating that the video looks 'bad'.

Come on Steve, you can do it!

Well, I can watch this video and think at least it wasn't in the balls against screws and plates in his hip. That was the problem I had with being attacked and tortured while in cuffs.

Two metal plates of stainless steel and 17 screws like electricity. My ass doesn't.

Guess I'll see how much they have to pay up to this guy and use that as a guide for my case pending. I better get on that phone and start doing some talking to those lawyer folk eh?
