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.

Attn Political Leaders of Canada

Reportedly, Taser International is about to launch a lawsuit against the Braidwood Inquiry.

Perhaps it is time to move the taser issue into the political arena (stop abdicating your role) and pass an "Act to Regulate Use of ECDs" to impose Braidwood's recommendations as Canadian law.

Then Taser International's (frivolous and without merit) lawsuit could be tossed out as being 'overcome by events'. This would certainly save untold millions of tax payers' dollars.

Instead of playing the litigation game with Taser International, force them into the Canadian political arena (YOUR arena). Then they'd have to stop snarling and start smiling. Instead of wrestling this pig in the mud (he enjoys it), let's make the swine into Canadian bacon.
