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.

The new Taser X3

Taser International (TASR) is introducing the Taser X3.

I wonder if it has basically the same waveform as the X26?

If the taser X3 waveform is the same as the X26, then Taser International is playing a stupid double-or-nothing game. Especially when the Braidwood Inquiry concluded that tasers can cause death. And the RCMP admitted that use of taser carries risks, and those risks include risk of death.

If it is different, then Taser International is providing ammunition to the plaintiff's lawyers. If they've eliminated the DC pulse after the arc phase, then that would be very interesting.
