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.

You've been misled...

The fundamental concept of the taser, going back to the purported tear-jerking fable about why the Smith brothers got involved, all rest on the lie that the taser is a replacement for the gun. Sounds good on its face.

Mirror.co.uk: Taser stun guns used by police 1,374 times (in four years)

If the UK police had been using their normal guns (pistols) at this rate, they'd have been the largest bunch of murderous thugs in British history.

Obviously the taser replaces something, but what? Common sense?
