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.

Oregon officials still denying the obvious

Oregon "officials" (?) are still searching for a reason why the elderly, 87-year-old woman who was hit with a taser (with a transcardiac vector no less, LEFT arm to hip) IMMEDIATELY (!) collapsed, was unresponsive, and died.

Now they're wondering if her pacemaker was stopped by the taser. [LINK]

Gee, maybe the taser had something to do with her IMMEDIATE reaction? God gave us the axis of time so that cause-and-effect makes sense. Ignore the temporal sequence and you enter a world where logic goes out the window.

It's pretty damn naive to explicitly exclude the taser as a possible cause of death on the say-so of those that make them.
