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 Int'l admits X26 is more dangerous...

Taser International argues its new model is safer than the... [marketing glop referring to the X26]. [LINK]

That's equivalent to admitting that the older model (the X26) is more dangerous.

If they've changed the waveform on the new X3, then it will provide useful ammo to many victims' lawyers.

I wonder if the steep price is required to pay for liability insurance?

I guess the B.C. market (probably most of Canada too) is closed to them until they get the new model "approved" by the taser safety regulators [?].
