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.

The heart of the issue

Peter Holran, Taser International's vice president for public relations and government affairs, told CBS News, "The electrical output of a Taser device is incapable of causing death." [all over the 'net]

The ONLY way this statement could ever be judged as being partially true is to twist the meaning of words into insanity. By any normal interpretation of this statement (.: "tasers-R-safe"), it is clearly false.

This false claim is at the very center of the entire family of taser problems, including overuse, misuse, and abuse.

It's the root if ALL taser evil.
