Taser International has some amazingly bizarre propaganda on their website.
One particularly hilarious page, recently referenced via the Wired article, is entitled "Why do certain anti-police groups blame Taser for injuries or death", written by Taser minion Mark W. Kroll.
First, note the old trick of the "injuriesanddeath" (essentially all one word) muddle. An intentional muddle I suspect. I've already discussed this immoral mixing in several previous posts.
One reason I find their webpage funny is that the title is obviously aimed at Amnesty International, which Kroll's propaganda price refers to as an "anti-police group". This is a sleazy and obvious 'It's us versus them" trick that would make Joseph Goebbels proud. And if you fall for it, then you are being played like a trumpet.
I guess they're not going to update the title to account for the fact that Amnesty International is not alone. The American Medical Association (AMA), the United Nations, the Canadian RCMP, and the recent Braidwood Inquiry - all of them - have issued formal acknowledgements that tasers are capable of causing death. The AMA even includes the phrase, "...directly or indirectly...".
So Kroll, are these additional groups also anti-police? The RCM Police are anti-police? The AMA?
And with respect to the Latin-laced logic, it's basically a taunt that the taser leaves little if any postmortem clues.
Too bad about the taser's "Curious Temporal Asymmetry".
