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 QotW: "The use of electricity to immobilize animals should be forbidden."

Dr. Temple Grandin is a Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University and a world-famous designer of humane livestock handling facilities.

"Electro-immobilization is NOT a humane method of restraint"

"The use of electricity to immobilize animals should be forbidden."

Consider that this advice is for animals.

What about humans?

It seems clear that the use of a Taser on a sick cow, violates Federal USDA animal cruelty Laws:

If sick cows may not be electro-shocked, under US Department of Agriculture Laws, is there a chance that the Human Animal could be protected in the same way cattle are?
