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.

It only takes one...

It's going to be interesting to watch Taser's reaction (and the market's) on Monday to the Turner autopsy results. [LINK]

Taser must be getting low on ideas. Excited delirium, whispered rumours about drugs, heart conditions, and all the rest. I wonder what's left in their bag of tricks? It'll probably be something either completely farfetched ('agitation can be fatal'), or silence.

It wouldn't surprise me if the market takes a few hours or a day to react rationally to this Very Bad News for Taser. Sometimes it seems like TASR investors don't always keep up with the news.

But I expect that TASR will be down significantly over the next day or two. Even the most pro-taser fan-boy must be left scratching their head at this one.
