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.

Did somebody say "Instrument of Torture" ???

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - ...Federal prosecutors say two former sheriff's deputies, William and Jeffrey Rogers (father and son), assaulted a man in their custody by repeatedly jolting him with a taser without justification. The former Tippah County deputies also are accused of falsifying reports in an effort to thwart an investigation of the June 2007 incident. A federal grand jury indicted the pair July 31. [LINK]

Did somebody say "Instrument of Torture" ???

The problem here is that some people think that they can get away with the torture because the physical clues are so much smaller than the level of pain. And in many cases, they probably CAN get away with it. This case is a rare exception.

So if you're looking for a device that produces extreme torture and leaves the smallest physical clues, then you want a taser!! Ideal for dungeons and torture chambers - even those with a "County Jail" sign hung over the entrance.

Has anyone seen any evidence that Taser condemns such misuse of their products? Any recent press releases on this sort of subject? Even a generalize statement?

Well, no. But I have heard Taser International provides comprehensive training materials and experts.

Go figure...
