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.

Angry e-mob at Digg reacts to idiot police

Remember the 16-year old lad that fell from (or whatever...) a 30-foot high overpass and broke his back and more. So the idiot police came along and tasered him 19 times. And then the police Captain tried to justify this incident!! Capt Thomas Rousset is an idiot-squared that should also be fired for 'dereliction of duty' (duties that specifically include protecting the citizenry, as opposed to covering for his idiotic 'police brothers'). [LINK]

Well, over at Digg [LINK], there is an angry e-mob that are extremely upset with the idiot police. There are more than 300 comments and I don't see any police/Taser apologists making an appearance.

This incident is exactly why tasers should be banned.

This is the dirty filthy stinking reality of tasers. And no, this is not a single rare exception; it just happens to be the clearest recent example. This sort of taser crap is going on every single day. Far more often than any rare beneficial examples where Taser issues a proud press release.

If Taser had an ethical bone in their corporate body, they would issue a press release condemning this (or perhaps more generally, this type of) incident.

Taser's silence speaks volumes.
