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.

Update to a previous post...

A previous post entitled Are tasers really required? [LINK] was so poorly worded that my point was not clear. Thanks very much to reader Michael for submitting a very good comment to point this out. I've rewritten the offending post from top to bottom to make it crystal clear.

The point, hopefully now perfectly clear, is that there are taser-use and non-taser-use incidents out there that can be compared and contrasted.

I've also 'modernized' (embedded YouTube) another previous post [LINK] linked from the above updated post. I highly recommend it as it is highly revealing of the main point. The contrast between the before and the after (tasers, taser propaganda, taser 'training') is absolutely striking. The day-to-day evil wrought by tasers is ultra clear.

PS: For those that still think that there's any debate left in the Utah 'speeding' motorist incident, please note that he was given a $40k cheque. [LINK] Officially, the $40k settlement is not an admission nor an apology. Unofficially, it's about twenty-thousand admissions and about twenty-thousand apologies.
