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.

Chart of Taser-associated deaths in Canada - Interval vs. Date

The following chart plots the interval (in days) between taser-associated deaths in Canada versus the associated calendar dates of those tragic incidents. Essentially - it's a Time-versus-Time graph to make the patterns more clear. Raw data was obtained from the Truth...Not Tasers blog.

The clusters of data points near the top of the graph represent clusters of closely-spaced taser-associated deaths. Those several clusters of four and five are simply insane. The clusters and subsequent dips are no mystery; they are easily explicable as a direct result of the perverted tasers-R-safe mindset (or The Church of Taser), and the shock of seeing these faith-based beliefs shattered.

Today (6 May 2010) represents the first one full-year (365 day) interval since records began. The most recent taser-associated death in Canada was Grant William Prentice, 40, in Brooks, Alberta on 6 May 2009, one year ago.

The simplest explanation for this recent dramatic downturn in the rate of taser-associated deaths in Canada is that everyone in Canada (at least those that are both informed and honest) now understands that tasers are fully capable of causing or contributing to death.
