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.

Winnipeg - more details

Read this:

"When the man was Tasered, he dropped to the ground and was clearly in distress, sources said. The man was not moving or responding to the officers, who called for an ambulance and attempted to revive him, sources said. The man was taken to HSC, where he was pronounced dead a short time later." [LINK]

Draw your own conclusions.

Next - review Taser's claims of safety.

Then draw your own further conclusions.
