Braccarius offered a list of what he assumed were reputable organizations that support "excited delirium" as an excuse for taser deaths:
- Canadian Police Research Centre
- Defense Research and Development Canada
- National Institute of Justice
- Institute for the Prevention of In-Custody Deaths
To anyone following the issue, some of these "organizations" are excellent examples. Because they clearly demonstrate what's actually been going on with Taser International and all their sleezy connections, both revealed and not yet revealed, to many such organizations.
CPRC had its chain yanked by its masters (see below). [LINK]
DRDC - they're probably okay (now). They're the ones that yanked CPRC back into line. [LINK] I've not seen anything that reflects poorly on DRDC.
NIJ's report didn't actually state that tasers are safe. Their report actually raised a red flag about the risks of repeated taser hits. [LINK]
IPICD is, in my opinion, just a front for Taser International. See [LINK] [LINK] [LINK] [LINK] and many, many more [LINK]. They're by far the worst of this list. Direct sleezy connections to Taser International and to those that promote "excited delirium". Whatever they were doing, they weren't very good at it...
All of these organizations have been mentioned on this blog before many times. Use the various blog search functions to look up more details.
It's an excellent list, but it doesn't prove what Braccarius thinks it proves.
His list indicates things that are much more interesting...
