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.

And so the mockery begins...

The Chronicle Herald newspaper in Halifax - Bruce MacKinnon's Editorial Cartoon.

The direct link to the cartoon has, as expected, broken. See here... [Truth...Not Tasers]


Someone is hiding behind a large rock which is marked "Taser International". Whoever is behind the rock (we see only an arm) is holding up a man dressed in a suit above the rock. The caption reads, "BACK OFF!! I have lawyers and I'm not afraid to use them..!!"

Did you see the cartoon in the Toronto Star on February 17th?! It shows the Grim Reaper reading the news about the RCMP changing its policies - and he's going "tut tut". I can't seem to get a link to it, but I will scan it as soon as I have a moment.
