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.

"Combative behaviour"

The [Taser fan-boy] associations say the weapon should only be used if there's a threat to the police officer or a threat to the public. Chief Kaye said, "There has to be some active resistance on people's behalf. It's got to be some kind of assaultive, combative behaviour...." [LINK]

Yeah, "combative behaviour" ... such as (for example) the world famous 'combative stance', as so ably demonstrated below by RCMP Const. Gerry Rundel.
