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.

Autism is not a crime - please stop with the tasers already

Update to:
City of Tybee, GA rummages around desk, looking for checkbook [LINK]
...and...
Two officers and the Police Chief 'down' in Tybee [LINK]

All charges against an autistic Georgia teenager, 18-year-old Clifford Grevemberg, have been dropped. An officer, who has since resigned, deployed his taser against Grevemberg twice believing that the autistic teen was drunk and disorderly. A lawsuit is pending. [LINK][via TNT]

As previously advised, offer a discount on the settlement provided they issue a groveling apology and clearly admit wrong-doing. On the other hand, if they wish to not admit wrong-doing, make them pay through the nose for that lie.

The discount (money left on the table) will pay for itself many times over in peace of mind.
