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.

"...dispel and address various myths..."

Chadron, Nebraska is getting tasers. [LINK]

Sgt. Jarvis Wallage and Officer Brad Hisel, who are both certified Taser instructors...

[That just means that they've been certifiably brain-washed by Taser.]

...will be holding a short information session about Tasers... Wallage noted, “In the near future our agency will likely be employing the less lethal device known as the Taser. We hope to dispel and address various myths regarding it."

What myths? Like some Taser spokes-puppets and minions claiming that tasers are essentially perfectly safe with respect to internal risk issues such as cardiac effects? Myths like that?
