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.

Film project underway...

Hi to all,

I am a film student with the Vancouver Film School. I am doing a short documentary on tasers. If there is anyone in the Vancouver area who has been tasered and lives to tell about it or knows someone personally that got tasered but unfortunately did not survive, and would like to participate in my documentary, please contact me at fp126alexl@vfs.com

A 'short' documentary? A 12-hour mini-series would barely be long enough to cover all the angles.

Please don't limit the scope of your film to just Vancouver. There are plenty of "interesting" taser incidents that happened elsewhere. It would be a shame to not include them. A narrow view can be very misleading (as exemplified by the attitude of police chiefs in various cities that don't see the problem. You need to stand back and take a wide view and then everything snaps into clear focus.

Done right (a la Michael Moore), a film on this subject could potentially win some major awards. The screenplay could almost be cut-and-paste from this and other blogs.

Good luck.
