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.

Celeste Thomas acquitted of taser-related 'cover charges'

CINCINNATI -- Celeste Thomas, who just happens to be the daughter of a Cincinnati city councilman, has been acquitted of "obstructing official business". Thomas was arrested on August 23 after a traffic stop. She was shocked with a taser portable electrotorture device by Officer Anthony Plummer after she got out of the car. An investigation found that the officer was wrong to use the taser on Thomas. Thomas had also faced an open container charge, but a judge dismissed it earlier this month.

UPDATE: Officer Plummer so very, very fired.
