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.

Response from Taser International to Braidwood Inquiry Phase 2

Braidwood concluded that the taser "played a more prominent role" in the death of Robert Dziekanski. Braidwood did not accept the testimony of Dr. Ho, a paid spokespuppet of Taser International, when he suggested that the taser, de facto, played no part in the death of Mr. Dziekanski. Dr. Ho's opinion was described as "insulting to the intelligence".

I've checked for recent Press Releases from Taser International and I can report that their response to the Braidwood Phase 2 report, a report made public on 18 June 2010 (more than two full business days ago), is as follows:

Taser International (TASR), manufacturer of electro-torture weapons that are not as safe as claimed; their stock price is down almost 10% in the two days since the Braidwood Phase 2 report was released.
