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.

Dr. Swerdlow removes himself from Taser International's Xmas card list

...But one of those experts, Los Angeles-based cardiac electro physiologist Dr. Charles Swerdlow, said in an interview he believes the [Braidwood] commission heard him out.

"My impression is that this has been a very thoughtful commission, and an enormous amount of work has gone into it," he said during an interview. "I'm sure the commissioner thought about this pretty carefully, from my observations. If the implication from Taser is that these guys did not think about it, that's almost certainly not true."

Bless his heart.

It's 'interesting' that Taser International would claim that the Braidwood Inquiry didn't pay enough attention to Dr. Charles Swerdlow, when Dr. Swerdlow apparently doesn't share that opinion.
