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.

Maryland police 'terrorizing' citizens

This story is not directly related to tasers - but it might make you think about things that relate directly to tasers...


CBC News (*) - ... Maryland State Police ... didn't even need to look overseas for their targets. They found their terrorists right here, in the Quaker halls, churches, campuses, community centres and neighborhood gathering spots of the most prosperous state in the union. Oppose the death penalty? Must be a terrorist. Oppose the Iraq war? Terrorist. Anti-abortion? Interested in human rights? Opposed to government policy in general? Terrorist, terrorist, terrorist. ...

Hmmm...

Read this [LINK] previously posted commentary about the dangers when linear spectrums becoming circles and good becomes evil.

Bingo.

MD State Police have crossed the line.


Post title should be interpreted as meaning that they're labeling innocent citizens as terrorists. They're not actually terrorizing anyone, except in the sense of calling citizens terrorists.

(* I've highlighted the CBC News in pink already so as to save the Extremist Right Wingers nut-jobbers the effort of calling the CBC '...some sort of Canadian commie pinko propaganda machine... blah blah blah...' It's not true of course, although the CBC certainly are slightly left of center. But overall they're not very far from the middle.)
