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 arrest head of French Taser stungun firm

LOL. What a riot.

Police arrested nine people including the French head of the Taser stungun firm and a police civil servant Tuesday on suspicion of spying on Trotskyist leader Olivier Besancenot, sources said. Paris prosecutors launched a probe in May after a magazine reported that a private detective firm was tailing the 34-year-old former presidential candidate, prompting his far-left party to sue for violation of privacy.

Those arrested include Taser France head Antoine Di Zazzo and a police department official who was recently transferred from his job in the capital to one in the provinces, according to an official close to the investigation. The head of the controversial stun gun company was being held in custody in connection with the investigation.

No word if Di Zazzo was tasered during the arrest, but one can only hope so.

Update: Taser has taken pains to distance themselves from Di Zappoo [or something like that] stating that he is not an employee of Taser. Di Zappoo is however a close business partner to Taser, being head of their french distributor.

Rotten apples fall especially close to the tree. Cough Cough Kerik Cough Cough Ahem. Excuse me...

Unless Taser is going to go all ethical on us and terminate their agreement with this distributor.

...waiting... ...waiting... ...waiting...
