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.

Police "acted professionally" - oh puhleeze...

Mobile, AL - Antonio Love, a deaf and mentally disabled man whom Mobile police forced from a Dollar General restroom wielding pepper spray and a Taser, sued Tuesday alleging that officers weren't properly trained and used excessive force to falsely arrest him. ... "The officers had no way of knowing that the person who [was] in the Dollar Store bathroom and refused to come out for almost an hour was physically challenged. They acted professionally and with restraint based on the information available to them at the time." ... [LINK]

So, given the bleedingly-obvious absence of any information whatsoever (!), they went on the attack.

And then the city spokespuppet has the nerve to characterize this blatant lack of restraint as that they "acted with restraint"?

You gotta admire the utter BS skills of some folks. It's all 1984-(the book)-speak.
