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.

Canadian taser restrictions moving east...

Tight restrictions on the use of tasers was in place in British Columbia within hours of the Braidwood Inquiry phase 1 report being released. Bless their hearts.

A couple of working days later, and Alberta is following suit (more or less, details still questionable).

Saskatchewan is now making the right sort of noises.

Anyone see a trend?

Domino theory. West to east.

They wouldn't be making these changes, tentative though they are, if they still had any faith in the promises made by the stun gun salesmen.
