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.

Comment moderation enabled

I've been forced to enable comment moderation. In other words, all comments must be approved before they will appear on this blog.

Extreme serial commenter 'D' is banned. This is entirely an issue of 'D' wasting my time, not censorship. I have left 'D's existing comments in place except for the latest batch of about ten. I have better things to do than spend my time cleaning up after a seagull ('D' takes maybe ten minutes to dump a load of silly comments onto this blog, and then I have to spend an hour shredded them one-by-one).

'D', if you need a forum to air your many self-contradictory views, then please feel free to start your own blog. It's a free country, but please get your own soapbox.
