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.

Taser Stupid-Flu spreading (to EIDs...)

Closely following Sgt. Walter Schmidt, 37, arsenal sergeant and 14-year veteran of the Franklin Correctional Institution who was fired for ZAPPING visiting children with an EID stun gun [reportedly NOT a "taser"] [LINK], there are more similar incidents surfacing.

Again in Florida...

Treasure Coast, FL — State officials said they are reviewing the actions of ten employees at two Treasure Coast prisons in incidents where children, ages 8 to 14, were shocked with stun guns when visiting for Take Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day. The incidents happened on April 23 at the Indian River Correctional Institution and the Martin Correctional Institution. "Department leadership is concerned by these incidents and is reviewing protocol for Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day and will likely change how the event is handled in the future." [LINK]

(Update: More here [LINK] & [LINK]. Note: EID vs. Taser.)

Okay, pull-up a chair, sit down, and pay attention. This type of moronic stupidity is exactly what you would expect when you allow the manufacturer(s) to control the entire training chain-of-command. They spread their own brand of mindless propaganda and leave a trial of brainwashed idiots.


"EID" vs. "taser"
