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.

2008: Aboriginal man taser-tortured for failing to obey

This sort of taser-torture is pure evil at its very core. It stems directly from tasers, and from the deceptive marketing and defective training that accompanies them. It is pure and unadulterated evil. This is what Hell looks like.

The report found West Australian police were increasingly using Taser guns to get suspects to comply with orders, but the weapons were originally introduced to prevent injury and cut the use of guns. It also found that there was an increasing and disproportionate use of Tasers on Indigenous people.

TONY EASTLEY: Police Taser guns are again attracting headlines, for all the wrong reasons. ... In Western Australia, the state's Attorney-General is looking at tougher penalties for police who use Taser guns unnecessarily. He made the call after seeing film of an Aboriginal man being tasered 13 times in a Perth watch-house in 2008. ...

SAMANTHA DONOVAN: The CCTV footage released by the West Australian Corruption and Crime Commission shows a group of police ordering a man to move. When he doesn't do what they want, they stun him with Taser guns, 13 times.

POLICE OFFICER: Do you wanna go again? Do you wanna go again?

(Taser noises)

(man screaming)

CHRISTIAN PORTER: I would consider that any rational member of the Western Australian public who sees the extent of the excessive force would consider that the eventual penalties of $1200 and a $750 fine respectively was insufficient.
