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.

San Jose taser fan-boy stuffs ballot box

There's a poll at the top of the right hand column.

Last evening, the pro-taser votes suddenly pulled ahead. Suspecting fraud, I checked the voting records this morning and examined their Internet trail.

Bingo...

It's extremely obvious that the repeated Google searches are evidence of someone clearing their local Internet data (including the 'cookies' that are intended to ensure one vote per visitor), and then having to Google search again and again to find this blog so they can vote again, and again, and again, and again, and again, and again.

Details for the record: Comcast Cable Communications, Inc., Windows Vista, IE 7.0, Screen resolution 1440 x 900, 9 visits on 9 May 2009 (within less than 30 minutes), average time on site "00:00:00" (very quick, for the 7 voting visits).

And here is the punchline:

Who do you think lives within this approximate location (ISP address versus residence)? [Perhaps it was just a neighbor trying to be helpful... Determining the real facts might require a subpoena for the complete Internet records.]
