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.

Unlucky telephone number...

TASER International, Inc.
Steve Tuttle, Vice President of Communications
Media ONLY Hotline: (480) 444-4000

Buildings in Asia often skip not only the 13th floor, but they also skip over any floor number with the numeral "4" (四). The reason is that, in the Chinese and other Asian cultures, the numeral four is considered to be very unlucky. It's because it sounds like "DEATH" (死). [LINK]

So if you need to call Steve, just remember:

You couldn't even make this sh_t up.

Hey, don't blame the messenger. It's your telephone number. I didn't pick it.
