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.

Attention pro-taser fan boys...

Your misinformative comments are not welcome here either. Feel free to start your own blog.

The reasons are very simple and easy to understand. Those of us blogging against tasers are not working full-time on the issue. We have other aspects to our lives.

We simply do not have time to respond to each and every comment. And yet, we cannot allow such misinformation to stand unchallenged on our blogs. Thus, we either hire full-time staff to clean-up after the seagulls, or we restrict comments. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

But hey. Good news: It's a free country. Feel free to start your own blog.

Maybe you could use the same URL without the dash. LOL.
