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 International realizes their mistake??

"...more consistent effects on the target and a margin of safety up to 40% greater than previous ECD technology." [Taser X3 marketing spew]

Although the X3 waveform data is still not available so far as I can see, the above statement clearly indicates that they now realize that the previous model, the X26, may have overshot the mark a bit.

He he - sorry.

I'll betcha a dollar that they've eliminated or reduced the dangerous low frequency components arising from that subtle D.C. pulse after the arc phase, unique to the X26.

All of this, if it can be confirmed, would provide excellent ammunition for the families' lawyers. It seems to me that there's more than enough possible liability to bankrupt them many times over.

Apparently all because they forgot about Fourier.

If you think education is expensive, try ignorance.
