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.

The Rockford Files

(Rockford, Illinois) The fact that two Rockford residents have died in the last two months when tasers have been used is raising some questions. Rockford Police say there’s no clear indication that Sunday’s death was caused by the use of a taser. [LINK]

For purposes of comparison, does anyone have a count on the number of Tylenol-related deaths in Rockford, Illinois in the past two months? What's that? 'None' you say? Zero?

Well - I guess that tasers must be used a lot more often than Tylenol in Rockford, Illinois.

Tasers - "Safer than Tylenol" my ass.
