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.

Officers are tasering their own careers

Martinsville, IN - Two Martinsville police officers accused of using a stun gun on a 10-year-old boy have now been suspended without pay. Capt. William Jennings and Officer Darren Johnson had been on administrative leave following last week's incident at a home day care. ... A closed-door meeting will be held on Wednesday to discuss further discipline, which could include dismissal, suspension or a demotion of rank... Both officers have been disciplined in the past for other incidents. [LINK]

Taser trained and certified, eh?

UPDATE - The phrase "criminal charges" has been mentioned.
