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.

Braidwood, page 295:

I am satisfied from the evidence before me that conducted energy weapons [tasers] cause intense pain, incapacitate the subject, and have the capacity to cause the subject’s death. [LINK]

Taser Can Cause Death.

Those that follow this blog should be aware that this is THE taser issue.

Tasers can (and therefore have, and will again) cause death, COMBINED WITH the on-going denials from Taser International, COMBINED WITH their influence over the defective training and thus the actual overuse, abuse and misuse of tasers - this is the deadly mess that results.

Once we acknowledge that tasers can kill, then there is a very simple, clear and ethically-obvious path to change that will tend to eliminate most of the evil.

But only if... [more later]
