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 lawyer drops Stupid-Bomb at Braidwood appeal

Toronto Star - Taser lawyer David Neave reportedly [via TNT] said:

...there is no evidence a Taser either caused or contributed to any of the deaths associated with the weapon.

Well - I can think of at least one obvious counter-example: Robert Dziekanski. And there are many more individually-identifiable cases where the role of the taser in the death has been identified as a cause or contributing factor.

And that's in spite of the extraordinary efforts made by Taser International to twist the obvious facts.

This statement is amazing, because their own outrageous claims destroy their own credibility in a way that can't be matched by others.
