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.

Well-known civil rights lawyer Cameron Ward wins in Supreme Court of Canada

CBC News - The Supreme Court of Canada has upheld $5,000 in damages against British Columbia for breaching the charter rights of Vancouver lawyer Cameron Ward who was unnecessarily strip-searched by police who wrongly thought [anyone really believe that?] he was going to throw a pie at Jean Chrétien.

I don't know how to contact you, so I'm using this comment form.
I thought you might be interested in these two stories.
The first results in death, making the death toll at least 492:

[They were "helping" him get into an ambulance.]

The other is a federal lawsuit and has video (story also confirms that all charges against the victim were dismissed):
