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.

'Any press is good press', eh?

"...recognizes the stun guns can cause death..." - CBC [LINK]
"...tasers potentially lethal..." - CTV News [LINK]
"...stun guns can cause death..." - Int'l Herald Tribune [LINK]
"...[tasers] ...can cause death..." - The Associated Press [LINK]
"...the weapons [tasers] can kill." - Reuters [LINK]
"...the stun gun can cause death..." - Canada.com [LINK]
"...the stun gun poses a risk of death..." - The Star (Toronto) [LINK]
"...tasers can cause deaths..." - All Headline News [LINK]
"...taser stun guns can kill..." - The Canadian Press [LINK]

Let's see: death, potentially lethal, death, death, can kill, death, death, deaths, kill.

"Protect life", eh?

The guy that called the taser 'a street level death lottery' was bang-on.
