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.

Electro-torture sadism runs deep

BBC News - A French TV documentary features people in a spoof game show administering what they are told are near lethal electric shocks to rival contestants. ... 82% of participants in the Game of Death agreed to pull the lever. ... Christophe Nick, the maker of the documentary, said they were amazed that so many participants obeyed the sadistic orders of the game show presenter. "They are not equipped to disobey. They don't want to do it, they try to convince the authority figure that they should stop, but they don't manage to." ... The results reflect those of a similar experiment carried out almost 50 years ago at Yale University by social psychologist Stanley Milgram. "With Milgram, 62% of people obeyed an abject authority. In the setting of television, it's 80%." [LINK]

The dark side of humanity. Almost Satanic.
