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.

Officer.com provides balanced report on MD AG report

Md. Report Calls for More Taser Restrictions
(22 December 2009)

Barry Kissin, a Frederick lawyer..., faulted the report for not putting more blame on Taser International. "The report also states that 'training materials provided by the manufacturer of these devices tended to significantly understate the risks associated with [Taser] use,'. The report stops short of referring to this 'understatement' as unscrupulous fraud for the sake of maximizing sales. I believe an appropriate recommendation would be to terminate all business with Taser International and to demand refunds." [Officer.com (!)]

I wonder what sort of biased whitewashing of the Maryland AG's report will emerge from the "Sponsored by Taser International" spokespuppet that writes on PoliceOne? LOL.
