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.

Anastasio Hernandez autopsy results "unclear"

The autopsy report fails to draw any clear conclusions about the cause of death for Anastasio Hernandez who was killed (died?) at the US Border at San Diego on May 29.

AP - In a report released Friday, San Diego County Chief Medical Examiner Glenn Wagner characterizes Hernandez' methamphetamine blood level of 0.16 milligrams per liter as acute but lists it as only one of several potential causes. He says it's also unclear how much blame to assign to the stun gun, Hernandez' agitated state and the position in which he was restrained by law enforcement officers.

Geesh. Four factors. How about we start with 25% each?

What would NOT make any sense would be to give the taser a free pass on the deceptive say-so of the stun gun salesmen.
