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.

Dr. Mike Webster - bless his heart...

Officers who Tasered Polish immigrant 'panicked'... [LINK]

Mike Webster: "They panicked and they abandoned their basic training and they embraced their more recent and questionable Taser training provided for them by their misguided employer."

Exactly. How many times have I described the taser training as 'defective'? Must be about a dozen times or more. Disagree if you wish - but I'm judging it by the real-world results, which are often plainly evil.

If the RCMP is looking to change something in the short term while we slowly prove that tasers-R-NOT!-safe (at the cost of more lives), then change the training. All the Taser-brainwashed trainers must be marked as 'damaged goods'. Anyone with a framed certificate mentioning "Taser International" should be quarantined until their brainwashing can be surgically removed.

Taser International should be explicitly punished for their hubris-laced and defective training.

At the very least, the Ottawa city Use of Force training needs to be made standard across Canada. That's the class where they explain about force-the-noun (lawful) and force-the-verb (see CC s.269.1).
