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.

PR at its least subtle

Who will fall for this completely unsubtle PR ploy by Taser?

"The Drive to Remember will feature the Gagmewithafork One, a dedicated Hummer H3 completely wrapped in law enforcement graphics....receiving law enforcement escorts across two countries, one province, 19 states, and in 25 major cities."

The Taser "Foundation for Fallen Officers" 2008 Drive to Remember is a disgusting and grotesque public relations ploy. You'd have to be a complete moron to not see through it.

And with all the subtlety of an elephant with diarrhea, they're starting in Vancouver, BC (site of so much Taser abuse in Canada).

We should certainly not allow taxpayer's money ("law enforcement escorts") to be spent on this grotesque public relations stunt by Taser.
