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.

Taser-proximal death in Winnipeg

Details are still lacking. It is not clear if there were any other explicit contributors to the death. But one report seems to be slightly indicative: "A witness told reporters he could see police trying to revive the man before paramedics arrived."

Keyword: "...revive..."

Possibly an indicator of cardiac issues? (Just a hunch at this point.) The news makes no mention of the victim fatally 'banging his head' or anything similar after being tasered.
