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 (TASR): Corporate 'goodwill' = negative billions


CBC News - Taser maker challenges Braidwood report [LINK]

I just waded through the first 30 or so pages (sorted by most 'Agreed') of comments posted to the above news item, and not one, not one, had anything nice to say about the management of Taser International. Most commenters were spitting-venom angry (and justifiably so).

It was also extremely satisfying to see that almost all commenters were uniformly very highly informed about the taser-death causality topic. For example, the basic concept of the taser's 'Curious Temporal Asymmetry' has taken firm root into the national consciousness.

And virtually all of the comments were based on factually-correct information and logic.
