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.

Comments on CBC: 97% Against

I read through about a hundred or more of the 300+ comments at CBC.ca [LINK] on this "combative stance" news story (see previous post).

There were only a few half-hearted comments in support of the police with respect to this incident.

In other words, the comments are running about 97% STRONGLY AGAINST the police officers' actions in the killing of Mr. Dziekanski.

Politicians should take note - the people are providing you with an excellent insight into their feelings about this tasers-in-Canada fiasco.
