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.

"Tasers-R-Safe" - but only "in Canada" ??!!??

Alberta Solicitor General Fred Lindsay said that there's "really no evidence" to suggest that tasers have caused any deaths in Canada. [LINK]

Hey Lindsay! You can't slip rubbish like that past us. We're not that inattentive that we don't see EXACTLY the word-Smithing games that you're playing.

Why the hell did you include the words "...in Canada"? This is a very serious question. Why did you include the words "...in Canada"?

Are the tasers in Canada any different than the tasers in the USA? Is there any evidence that tasers have 'directly caused', 'caused', or 'contributed to' deaths in the USA? [YES]

Now, can you please remove the Taser Spokespuppet's arm from up your backside, regain control of your mind and mouth, and tell me exactly why you're including the words "...in Canada" in your taser safety claim?

If tasers are not perfectly safe in the USA, then would they be any different in Canada?

Playing word games like this (slipping in fresh geographical limitations to stay ahead of the disturbing truth slowly reveal by the real-world statistics) is clearly unethical. Lindsay should be ashamed of himself.
