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.

Editorials

Edmonton Sun, May 19, 2008 - "To a man with a hammer, everything looks like a nail" - Mark Twain. To someone with a taser, everyone looks like Frankenstein's monster, in need of a jolt. ...in reality, people do die after a taser has been used on them. ... [LINK]

Halifax Chronicle-Herald, May 18, 2008 - ... With serious questions about safety, and inconsistencies in police training and policies, we urge the taser be holstered. [LINK]


Virtually all of the editorials in Canadian newspapers are on-side with taser critics.
