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.

Quote of the week...

I used to work for Nortel. If one of the phones ever killed anyone the entire product line would have been recalled. Phones aren't suppose to kill anyone.

Neither are tasers. Why has this product line not been recalled? Why do the police insist on using this product which is defective x% of the time. Why does our government let the company continue business, and let the police continue use a defective product?



One minor clarification: 10% would be 'xx%', not "x%".
