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.

A while ago I got into a foolish Twitter war with an idiot that was selling tasers to women "for their own protection". Once it became apparent that the idiot was based in Scottsdale, AZ, I gave up the argument.

At the time, I commented that a taser was not really the best choice because it could be turned against the owner.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Knoxville police are investigating reports that a young woman was raped and may have had her own taser used against her. ... [LINK]
