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.

Memo to Deputies: The taser free-for-all is over

Another one!

Syracuse, NY - Onondaga County Sheriff's Department reports that Sheriff's deputy Sean Andrews, who infamously tasered 38-year-old mommy and minivan driver Audra Harmon, has been suspended without pay for 30 days. This is after an administrative hearing Wednesday that is part of ongoing disciplinary proceedings. ... Harmon was charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and driving 50 mph in a 45 mph zone [classic "cover charges"]. The charges were later dismissed [See?]. Harmon sued the sheriff's department last week. [LINK]

When judgments such as these are now being handed down, those idiot taser fanboys that essentially claimed that there was no such things as taser abuse, misuse, and overuse - well, those fanboys were clearly incorrect.
