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.

Then resign...

Vancouver Sun - British Columbia Solicitor-General John van Dongen refused to say Sunday whether he supports a policy that allows Greater Vancouver transit police to use Tasers on 'non-compliant' passengers. "I'm not going to answer that question," Van Dongen stated. "I'm not the expert on that." [LINK]

It's all explained in the right-hand column and previous posts. I believe that I have fully addressed all possible counter arguments. If anyone feels that tasering 'non-compliant' passengers is legal, then please feel free to post a comment explaining your logic.
