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 International facing numerous high profile lawsuits

I've heard through the grapevine that Taser International is facing several high profile lawsuits in the coming year. These are cases where 8-figure judgments would seem perfectly reasonable.

In my personal opinion, I believe that Taser International's use of "the science" (their use of the word makes me want to gag) as a blunt weapon, and their too-clever-by-half use of Daubert motions has probably run its course. No informed attorney will be caught out, and no reasonable court would truncate an interesting case based on Taser International's interpretation of the state of "the science" (gag).

2010 should be a good year.
