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.

9th Circuit Court taser ruling - cause and effect

Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said he isn’t sure how the ruling will affect his office’s use of Tasers, "We will be reviewing our policies and talking with our instructors." [LINK]

This review of Taser Use Policy follows the 9th Circuit Court ruling on acceptable and unacceptable taser uses.

But Taser International claimed that this ruling has little impact. They claimed it only applies to one case, and they clearly implied that nothing changed. [LINK]

So they're continuing to deny obvious cause-and-effect?
