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.

I hope that he picked-up some leads for alternate employment

Leadville, CO - Lake County sheriff's Deputy John Ortega has been suspended for one week [my guess - more to follow] for using a stun gun on 30 high school students attending a job fair and who said they wanted to know what it felt like. Officials say some students suffered burns of varying degrees when the taser was applied to their legs. At least one student was treated at a hospital. Authorities are considering whether to file criminal charges. ... [LINK]

There's stupid.

There's incredibly stupid.

And then there's 'taser stupid'.
