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.

Define "subdue" in the context of using tasers to apply electric shock

Pet peeve of the month

The '1984'-style use of the word "subdue" to describe what happens when a taser is used to apply excruciatingly-painful and potentially-fatal electric shocks to a person.

And nobody has ever been able to provide an answer, or even a response, to The 'glowing cigarette' Taser Challenge [LINK] from February 2009; not a single response, not one.

Tasers ARE torture.

Add a black hood and clip the wires to the subject's hands if it helps you to complete your mental image...
