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: Most-Succinct Editorial Exerpt of the Week

"...there is a temptation to use [tasers] more than necessary. Indeed, there is ample evidence of people being stunned merely for being uncooperative with police. It’s a handy tool to force compliance. However, such usage is an abuse of police power..." [LINK]

That's one of the most succinct problem statements I've seen in a while.

In the nomenclaturism of this blog, it's called "overuse".

By truncating the overuse of tasers, it probably also addresses the misuse and abuse of tasers, at least to some hypothetical extent.

All these problems have their roots in Scottsdale, AZ. The law enforcement community have been misled and provided with clearly-defective training material.

Those that are Taser trained and certified via the Taser International vertically-integrated propaganda system are the worst possible source for reliable and ultimately correct information. Police and civic leaders need to start sharply poking certain people in the chest with a sharp finger. These on-staff "experts" (Taser moles) have been the conduit for bad information. This infiltration needs to be straightened out ASAP.
