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.

Ouch! "27 to 33" equals 48

Bernard (Bernie) Kerik (who just happens to be a former member of the Board of Directors of Taser International) has been sentenced to four years for various corruption convictions.

Ouch!

As part of the plea deal, the prosecution had only asked for 27 to 33 months.

48 months is an EXTRA year and a half over and above the mid-range 30 months. But the plea deal was with the prosecutor, not the court. The plea agreement even explicitly states exactly that; see [LINK].
