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.

For those that don't follow the stock market

This is what the lawsuit loss looks like (the $6.2M judgment was issued late on Friday). Since then the TASR stock has plumbed new depths (as low as $5.75 at one point today). Remember that it was as high as $15.94 less than six months ago. The stock might very well bounce back to some degree, but they are now a sitting duck for other lawsuits. I guess Smith was correct when he more-or-less predicted that they would lose a liability lawsuit sooner or later.
