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's legal advice, compare to this...

New York Times - Orin S. Kerr, a former federal prosecutor and a professor at George Washington University Law School, called it “an important case” that was unusual in the way it set a broad rule without giving deference to the use of force by the police. "This decision is trying to create rules to govern cops and is trying to limit the use of Tasering,” he said. “It has a very big real-world impact." ... [LINK]

"...a very big real-world impact..."

Gee, that isn't exactly what the brain-trust at Taser International implied... [LINK]

Who are YOU going to trust? The slick-talking stungun salesmen that will happily put you in legal jeopardy to sell one more taser cartridge, or a law professor?
