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.

Iowa bill labels stun guns as 'dangerous weapons'

A stun gun would be officially classified as “dangerous weapon” under a bill state lawmakers are considering. ... Sen. Herman Quirmbach, a Democrat from Ames, pointed out that the law defines a dangerous weapon as a device designed primarily for inflicting death or injury. ... Stun guns would be lumped in with pistols, daggers, stilettos, switchblade knives and other weapons if this bill passes. House File 2628 was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee today; next stop is the full Senate.


It really must be a Laugh-A-Minute to work in the Public Relations department at Taser. Perhaps they'll be putting in another long day tomorrow to deal with this latest assault on the reputation of their products.
