The killing of Mr. Dziekanski is thus an archetypal lesson, not only for the RCMP but for all police forces in Canada, in the dangers of high-tech weaponry.
Especially when those weapons are sold under false safety claims; those claims supported by elementary technical mistakes, and what appears to be outright deception and fraud.

For years before the tragedy, the RCMP had insisted that Tasers did not kill people even though there were many incidents where people died just after being Tasered. The RCMP, like the Taser's manufacturer, insisted that something called "excited delirium" was killing these people, which was highly unlikely since they died just after being Tasered, not before.
