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.

Tasering 72-year old grandmother (in an expert manner)

72-year old Winkfein responded with "...Go ahead and tase me. I dare you." [LINK]

I guess that's good enough reason. 'She asked for it.'

Deputy Beize is the Taser instructor for Precinct 3. We're told he would know if tasering Winkfein could have been a hazard to her health.

I call a Bullsh_t on that claim. Taser Instructors, being almost at the very bottom of the taser propaganda food-chain (long past the point where 'it' could still considered to be food), will be amongst the very last people on Earth to learn about the safety concerns swirling around tasers.

They've less than useful amounts of knowledge. Worse than useless.

The only possible value in listening to anything that they have to say would be if investigators into the larger Taser Issue would like to interview them for posterity, and for laughs and giggles.
