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.

World is starting to take notice...

Taiwan - A Canadian [think about that word...] judge conducting a public inquiry into stun gun use says the electronic weapons can kill or seriously injure victims, and police officers must change how they use them. Justice Thomas Braidwood has criticized police for not properly studying the potential dangers of stun guns and not training officers adequately in their use. Braidwood stopped short of recommending banning stun guns and instead said police should severely limit their use. [LINK]
