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.

Taser International working on new theory of how "excited delirium" results in subjects being left in critical condition

Only a couple of weeks after 16-year-old Steven Avila was tasered_and_ended-up-critical [LINK], it's happened again.

David Nall, 37, was tasered twice, and almost immediately found to be unresponsive. News reports state that he is in critical condition. [LINK]

The close temporal alignment of the deployment of the taser to the serious medical reaction is clearly an indicator of causality.

Keep in mind that Taser International and their minions claim that the taser does not cause such significant medical consequences.

Their denials only serve to heighten their liability.
