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.

Braidwood Inquiry cost $0.11 per Canadian

The Braidwood Inquiry has reportedly cost about $3.7 million dollars, presumably 'so far' because it's not over.

There may be a knee jerk reaction about the cost of such public inquiries, but it's only about eleven cents per Canadian. Given that both the four Mounties and Taser International are unhappy with the results to date, I'd say it is money extremely well spent.
