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.

Taser insanity - headlines du jour

Police taser two students [Girls!] to break up school fight [LINK]

I guess that without the taser this brave police officer would have been forced to shoot them both dead [?]. As it happens, neither girl was killed by the taser - so all's well that ends well. The girl-fight was broken up, nobody died, and the wussy puffter pansy powder-puff (not that there's anything wrong with that) police officer in question is the laughing stock of the entire civilized world.

Taser malfunction impedes drug arrest - "...due to a taser malfunction..."[LINK]

Modesto speeding biker - "...it did not appear the taser was effective..." [LINK]

Taser fundraiser - Police Chief Steven Wulgaert, who will [soon] retire as police chief of the Outagamie County, ...agreed to take a jolt from the stun gun if the other officers could raise $500 for Special Olympics. [LINK]

Oh please do. But first, turn around and take the taser hit directly on the chest (as opposed to your back) with the taser-barbs arranged so that maximum current flows in the vicinity of the heart. Repeat the 5-second taser cycle about 5 or 10 times. Don't worry - it's 'perfectly safe'. Good luck.
