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.

"Police: Man starts to chew off own head, saved by taser"

It seems like there have been quite a few of this sort of press release coming out in the taser news feeds in the past few weeks.

...It's very strange...

No - not the incidents themselves.

I mean it's strange that the police are actually issuing pro-taser press releases about such crazy incidents. That aspect is unusual and more than a bit creepy.

Especially when those same servants of the public go all silent when someone dies after being tasered.
