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.

An example of Taser's use of Daubert

In the case of DAVID R. WILSON, CHARLENE WILSON v. TASER INTERNATIONAL, INC.

A legal document is available on the InterWeb-thingy at the following "Universal Resource Locater". Apparently you can just click on the following underlined "link" and the document will open right up on the screen (*):

In this lawsuit, Taser International was able, using Daubert, to exclude any evidence that the spinal fractures, (allegedly) coincident with the taser training hit to the back, were possibly cause by the taser training hit.

Common sense indicates that it was a slimy legal maneuver to leave a police officer that was (allegedly) seriously-injured during taser training without compensation.

Nice friends, eh?


(* By the way, why is that .pdf file clearly marked "DO NOT PUBLISH" ? This here InterWeb-thingy sure is right-some complicated, eh?)

{ROLLS-EYES} at the sheer incompetence...
