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.

Time to remind RCMP who pays their salaries...

CBC: Use of RCMP Tasers rises dramatically [LINK]
CP: Mounties zap details... [LINK]
CanWest: Eyes on RCMP for censoring Taser....reports [LINK] - added 25 March 2008
Sun: Taser censorship a stunner [LINK] - added 25 March 2008

In summary, as taser use rises, the RCMP become more embarrassed of the details (*).

(* If that's not true, feel free to provide complete information.)

UPDATE: Embarrassed RCMP examine their shoes, kick at floor, mumble something. [LINK]
