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 abuse costing a fortune - didja get the memo?

This is probably the best column on the subject of tasers that I've seen in many weeks.

It's basically a review of various taser-abuse settlements.

Political leaders and law enforcement decision makers need to review this article and realize that taser abuse is now squarely in the legal crosshairs.

Are you still relying on Taser Use Policy and taser training standards and material that can be traced directly back to Taser International? What, are you stupid?
