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.

Globe and Mail sums it up very nicely

Globe and Mail - 'Vunerable Targets' [LINK]

Note the moronic comment, posted to the online article at the above link, from 'wisewon' (sic) posted at 3:35am. 3:35am!! Sign of a professional being paid to be first to comment, or someone with significant 'issues'.

I assume it's the former and I also take it as a sign of the desparate and borderline unethical approach that some will take to influence public opinion on this important public policy issue.

Amusingly, such extreme right-wing 'nut job' opinions generally do not play well in Canada. They're doing themselves a disservice because of their own ignorance of the subtle nuances of Canadian culture. Which I find amusing.
