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.

Welcome to Wired.com readers

This blog (www.Excited-Delirium.com, with the dash!) has 1200+ posts covering all aspects of the taser debate.

Although I'm concerned about what I call Taser Torture (misuse, overuse and abuse of tasers) [even to the point of helping to start the new Evidunce.com taser abuse video tracker], the first issue to address is the "question" of taser safety. Taser International will not admit that tasers can sometimes kill through inherent internal risk factors such as cardiac effects. There's also the Blood pH death mechanism. But there are many logical reasons not to accept their position.

One of the easiest arguments to digest is the taser's "Curious Temporal Asymmetry" (Google the phrase).

And don't miss the AMA's postion.

Nor overlook the Braidwood Inquiry.

Wired readers are probably educated enough to follow the posts I've made about (for example) 150 mA RMS versus 2 mA "average". Or the Fourier implications of the X26 waveform. And you'll probably enjoy some of the Whois and (other, similar) 'Excited Delirium' URLs that I tracked back to Taser International's own lawyer. Or the Taser minion (maybe) that tried to skew a poll I was running. You'll have to dig through the index to find them, but there have been some posts that will be very revealing of the twisted moral compasses and technical incompetence of some pro-taser folks. If you're a geek, you'll be LOL.

I hope that you're interested and concerned enough to help.

If so, then please help this blog to 'go viral'.
