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.

Weapon of choice? Why not start with 'Respect'.

Montgomery, AL -- ...The police officer, who was assigned to the school, responded to a fight between two girls [16 & 19 years old] that broke out behind the school. ... The officer had his tasergun out in an effort to break up the fight when several people jumped on his back. The taser went off, subsequently striking the officer. [LINK]

Not exactly what I would consider an optimal approach and probably not exactly the desired outcome.

Suggestion: Try working on that whole 'Community Relationship' thingy.
