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.

Seven years...

More on the seven-year-delayed glimmer of justice. Previous post [LINK].

Edmonton Police Chief Mike Boyd has been directed to lay charges against Const. Mike Wasylyshen who repeatedly used a stun gun on a 16-year-old Randy Fryingpan nearly seven years ago. The Law Enforcement Review Board calls for charges of "unlawful or unnecessary exercise of authority" and "insubordination" against Wasylyshen. [LINK]

Imagine how much of a backlog of "bad" can build-up in The System when it takes seven long years to even begin to get justice on one, perfectly blatent, incident. That's a very, very poor feedback loop.

The Powers That Be should be ashamed.
