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.

They get angry if we use 'The K-word'

According to Dr. Zian Tseng, a cardiac electrophysiologist at the University of California in San Francisco and a medical expert in sudden death, Mr. Dziekanski would have lived if he hadn't been tasered. [LINK]

Between Dr. Tseng and Dr. Butt, the hired pea-shooters sent by Taser International have been outclassed and out-gunned.

At this point, Taser International panics.

What? What is the "K" word?

If you mention that "tasers kill", or if you use the headline "taser death", then you'll receive communications from Taser International's own Steve Buttle asking that you stop making wild unsubstantiated claims about how "tasers directly cause death".

So bloggers are not allowed to use the word K-I-L-L in respect to the outcomes expected from use of a taser.
