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.

Research into Taser deaths 'conflicting'

"The jury is still out on whether being shot with a Taser stun gun can result in heart problems and possible sudden death, according to Australian research." [LINK]

And this finding is in spite of Taser's best efforts at plugging up the pipes with their studies.

Sometimes the simplest observation, such as the Curious Temporal Asymmetry [LINK], is the sort of thing that reveals the causality relationship versus illogical protestations of innocence.
