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.

Taser International markets products via Twitter

But this new media is just as open to those that are critical of tasers, and wish to debate the many issues that swirl around them.

Taser International's stupid little Twitter marketing campaign [LINK] is providing an opportunity, and the imperative, for the taser-critical activists to follow them into this new media. It's called 'providing balance' on a highly controversial issue.

And the timing is good, due to the recent crystal-clear emergence of taser's 'Curious Temporal Asymmetry'. [LINK]


PS: This blogger is open to logical rebuttals to any of the arguments presented in this blog. Feel free to contact the blog at the e-mail address provided. But any such rebuttals are subject to close scrutiny and public shredding. I welcome the opportunity to debate the issues. But I get the impression that pro-taser folks are pretty much out of ammo, in terms of logically-consistent arguments to support their contentions (especially with respect to the primary issue of taser-associated deaths and the causality of same).
