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.

$145M lawsuit bumped to $155M

Gazette.net (MD) - Claims of cover-ups... [LINK]

The part about the extremely small amount of drugs found is interesting. Talk about 'digging for dirt' !!! The police searched the car to a degree that they claim to have found "...a small quantity of leafy substance still attached to the stem....not even enough to weigh...". The fact that they went looking for this and found it is indicative of the sort of investigation that was undertaken.

Frederick County, MD, USA: One officer, Corporal Rudy Torres, has deployed his taser seven times [another report says NINE] in the past two years.
