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 tide has definitely started to turn

A police officer in Eustis, central-Florida has been drop-kick fired for using a taser on a 15-year old at a party.

See story at [LINK].

This 'You're fired!!' reaction to taser abuse, misuse and overuse is the new world order. Even a few months ago we saw nothing but excuses, red herrings and semi-official cover-ups for such incidents. Today you will still see a mix of outcomes, but at least we're making progress by having the clearest incidents addressed appropriately (sometimes).
