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 Usage Statistics

According to some information I've seen, researchers or ordinary folks in Australia and the UK are looking for taser usage statistics.

This blog (Excited-Delirium.com, don't forget the dash) specializes in shredding the many sad and pathetic pro-taser arguments. Along the way I've discovered, and reported on, some very intriguing facts. There are too many examples to list here, but you can start with this 2008 year-end summary [LINK].

The Truth...Not Tasers blog [LINK] captures the taser news, provides a unique perspective, and documents the List of the Dead [LINK].

The It all goes here blog [LINK] covers a wide ranch of aspects and has captured some excellent findings.

For some Taser Usage Statistics, one of the few public databases is linked from here [LINK].

There is a lot of information - so make yourself comfortable...
