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.

'no charges' against police officers involved with death of Dziekanski

CTV News reports that no charges will be made against the RCMP officers that were involved in the killing (no other word for it...) of Robert Dziekanski at Vancouver Airport. [LINK]

I wonder if this is the taser proof issue that I've mentioned before? [LINK]

But even with this ethical and philosophical quandary - did the prosecutors fail to understand that pointing a firearm without justification is a criminal offense, and that the taser is a firearm?
