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.

Major topics - Braidwood, the taser's Curious Temporal Asymmetry, and glowing cigarettes...

If you're just joining the taser debate, then you should catch-up by reviewing the Braidwood Inquiry taser report. One of his conclusions, even after carefully considering both sides of the debate, was that tasers are fully capable of causing death, by any of several taser-death mechanisms, even with healthy adults.

Also, search for the taser's "Curious Temporal Asymmetry", a simple observation that may be the death knell for denial of causality. Unless someone finds a rebuttal. Feel free to send any such rebuttals in. They'll get a fair shake, at risk of being publically shredded.

For the taser torture question, search out the 2008 Taser Glowing Cigarette Challenge. Send in your rebuttals.

Once you review and digest these primary reports and ideas, then your mind will be much less muddled.
