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.

And exactly what would he have been looking for?

The chief medical examiner for Nova Scotia ... didn't find any evidence that Hyde died ... from the Taser shock. [LINK]

Exactly what would the good doctor have been looking for? If he can't answer this question, then this finding can be lumped in with all the others as being essentially meaningless.

PS: I note with some satisfaction that the vast majority of those commenting on the CBC news site have explicitly rejected the 'excited delirium' finding.
