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.

Why is this blog called "Excited-Delirium" ??

I've just added an explanation in the right hand column. It's presently the 3rd item from the top in the right hand column. I think it's worth a read.

Perhaps you'll recognize the strategy as being in the style of The Art of War by Sun Tzu [LINK].

There is no such medical diagnosis as "excited delirium" therefore it can NEVER be a cause of death.

Full stop.

I generally agree, but...

The phrase 'Excited Delirium' has reportedly been listed as a cause of death on some death certificates.


Taser reportedly sent out brochures to every coroner and medical examiner in the land promoting excited delirium as a more-likely cause of death when tasers were involved.

Their corporate behavior should be raising the eyebrows of the regulators. Where are the regulators?

Taser claims their products are safe - so where the hell are the regulators?

A good question.

There was an exchange of comments on the following post:

(Monday, April 21, 2008) In critical condition - from "Excited Delirium"?

The argument being tentatively proposed by Katie led directly to the conclusion that 'Excited Delirium' was simply another name for Beer + Taser = Death.

I offered my opinion that Taser probably wouldn't be willing to sign-up to that argument.
