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.

OPP Comish and Taser fan Julian Fantino leaving

CBC News - Julian Fantino's controversial tenure as the head of the Ontario Provincial Police is ending. [LINK]

Notable taser-related quotations:

Fantino said that the taser debate is "...off the rails...", meaning that the public were incorrect to be concerned about tasers, their false safety claims, or the thus defective Taser-Use Policies. [LINK] Well, I guess the debate still is "off the rails", what with Braidwood and all that, eh? LOL.

Here [LINK] Fantino is found reading from a very carefully-worded script, almost certainly directly traceable back to Taser International. Not a chance in Hell he would have got the words so exactly matching the most up-to-date Taser claims without their help. One should choose one's friends (sic) more carefully.

Here's another Fantino quote where the subtitles of the taser problem washed around him. [LINK]

I really hope that he enjoys a very quiet retirement.
