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.

Tasered for 'not obeying...'

Harrodsburg, KY - Whitney Kareken is suing Mercer County deputies, claiming they used a stun gun on her while she was suffering from a seizure. ...the incident occurred after the seizure caused Kareken to lose control of her SUV and crash into a ditch. The lawsuit goes on to say a nurse who happened upon the scene informed deputies that she was having a seizure, but they ignored her. Sheriff Kerht claims that the claims are 'inaccurate'. [LINK]

I'm guessing that the nurse's testimony might settle the argument.

Does a high-end of six-figures settlement sound reasonable?
