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.

RCMP could learn from 'Social Critic'

Read the comment from 'Social Critic' here [LINK].

A small extract:

...In a tiresomely predictable way the tautology repeats like this:

1. No one may ever question police behaviour because whatever the officer perceived is what the officer perceived.

2. Therefore whatever the officer did in response to the perception is reasonable.

3. Therefore the officer is always right.

4. Therefore anyone who disputes the officer must by definition be wrong. ...
