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 now "...safe near water...", Huh?

Las Vegas Sun "When the X3 says it’s going for a swim, Tuttle says, it’s really to emphasize the device is safe near water."

REALLY??

So is Taser International abandoning the long standing warning about the risk of death by drowning if the taser actually happens to be effective (hey, it happens...) and causes NMI while the victim drowns in even a puddle of water?

Steve, Steve, Steve. I think I know what you're trying to say, but that's not what you reportedly actually said.
