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.

Tasers suck and everyone now realizes it...

'The Province' newspaper has an editorial blasting the Vancouver (BC, of course) police for turning to that Handy-dandy Tool For All Evil and Stupid Purposes, the taser. The police were "forced" (LOL) to use the taser on a 110-lb, 16-year old young woman. Some reports indicate that they tasered her in the neck...

It's extremely satisfying to see that the ugly and putrid reality of tasers has now completely swamped out the endless efforts of Taser's vast public relations machine.
