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.

Yeah, you're still fired.

Glenrock, WY - The Glenrock Town Council voted Monday night to uphold last year's terminations of Officer Michael Kavenius and Sgt. Paul Brown, the taser-wielding town police officers who tasered a 76-year-old Bud Grose who was driving a tractor in the town's annual Deer Creek Days Parade. Reportedly, Mr. Grose was shocked five times with Kavenius' taser. ... [LINK]

While looking at this story of an 2008 abuse of Taser Law Suit in Delaware -

"The lawsuit stems from a Jan. 13, 2008 incident that the suit states started in the marsh off Savannah Road near Fisherman’s Wharf. The lawsuit alleges Tylecki, while waiting for his mother to pick him up, was confronted by Lewes Police Department Cpl. James Azato and Delaware State Police Cpl. Matthew Blakeman."

I noticed a story of another arrest of Chad Tylecki and his father in 2009 -

"Location of Incident: 300 block of Pebble Road in Rehoboth, Delaware, Sussex County

Date and Time of Occurrence: Thursday, May 21, 2009, at approximately 2:11 a.m.

Suspect(s):
Chad Tylecki, 29, of 15000 block of Coastal Highway in Milton
Gregory Tylecki, 57, of 15000 block of Coastal Highway in Milton

Resume: Just after 2:00 a.m. this morning, Troopers were called to the 300 block of Pebble Road in Rehoboth Beach in reference to an assault investigation.

When officers arrived on the scene, they contacted the alleged victim, Chad Tylecki. Chad appeared intoxicated and was belligerent with Troopers. He continually raised his arms at officers and became aggressive. He then pushed one of the Troopers who in turn attempted to arrest him. Chad refused to go quietly and resisted arrest.

Chad’s father, Gregory Tylecki, who was already at the Pebble Road address, began to pull his son away from officers, hindering the officers’ attempt at an arrest. Finally, Chad and his father were arrested. They were both transported back to Troop 7 for processing.

Chad was formally charged with Resisting Arrest, Offensive Touching of a Law Enforcement Officer and Disorderly Conduct. He was ordered held at the Sussex Correctional Institute in lieu of $2,250.00 secured bail.

Gregory was charged with Hindering Prosecution. He was released on a $500.00 unsecured bail."

What is the "message" here? Is this police stalking and harassment of a Taser victim who is likely to file suit?

If true, it's pretty chilling.

The report indicates that the police "...were called to..." the address and that Chad Tylecki was "the alledged victim" of the reported assault.

So perhaps it is an elaborate conspiracy, or perhaps the subject and his family have issues. The latter seems more likely, but one should remain open minded.

I am a family member of Chad's who can't wait until his case is adjudicated so we can tell our story__the whole story!

Our hope is that justice will be served and that legislative changes will be made so no other family will have to endure suffering at the hands of those who are sworn to protect and serve us.

Tasers are causing serious injuries and deaths. But since the USERS are the only ones compiling the evidence and recording data, the public remains dangerously unaware.

I beg other victims, independent researchers, EMS and medical personnel and honest people in law enforcement and corrections to please speak out! Tell what you've seen and what you know!

Chad is lucky to be alive to speak for the 472+ North Americans who have been tasered to death. Is anyone else brave enough to help us tell the truth?
