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.

Taser "had no effect" - five officers injured

An 'interesting' taser incident from the east coast of Canada.

Five Halifax Regional Police officers suffered minor injuries while arresting a man Sunday morning. All of the officers were checked at the hospital, cleared and back on the job by the afternoon. [LINK]

A police news release said officers used a Taser on the man, but it had no effect.

"No effect."

Except perhaps it made a bad situation worse.
