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 prescribed for diabetic emergency

Ralph E. Eldridge, a 53 year old U.S. Air Force veteran, has launched a lawsuit against the city of Warren and the Police Department, claiming he was stunned with a Taser and falsely arrested during a diabetic emergency. "He was driving a little bit erratic; he stopped, got out and admitted he was having a medical emergency. The next thing he knows, he got hit with a Taser." [LINK]

The problem might be that the taser training replaces common sense.
