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.

Headline: "...death by Taser"

The Charlotte Observer [LINK]

$625,000 settlement in death by Taser

For those readers just joining the blog, please Google your way to the Canadian Braidwood Inquiry report on tasers. It just came out. The report is some 500-pages, but there is a summary that is well worth reading. I've included some small extracts in previous posts, but you should refer to the original for complete details. Link provided near top of right hand column.

The most significant conclusion is that tasers can "cause death".
