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.

I can see ... t h e ... f u t u r e ...

(11 August 2008) My comment, attached to this blog, regarding the impact of ubiquitous cellphone video capability:

"...we're just transitioning into the stage where the first response is official silence until the videos surface or not." [LINK]


(17 August 2008) Canadian Press story quoting RCMP Spokesman Sgt. Pierre Lemaitre (who was accused of passing on incorrect info shortly after the Dziekanski incident):

"...in the future, I will consider saying that we have no comment, there's an ongoing investigation, and weather the storm of media criticism that we are not forthcoming." [LINK]


Bingo.
