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.

7th grader in KY tasered

LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Jefferson County Public Schools say police used 'the glowing end of a lit cigarette' [or perhaps it was a taser] on a 7th grader Monday. A district spokeswoman says a student was out of control in the cafeteria. She won't say what lead to Monday's outburst, but states that teachers and school officials tried to calm him down.  Then the student assaulted the officer, who then burned him. ... [news]

Kids School Boards these days... They're just out of control.

I recommend a huge lawsuit. By the time it winds through the system, hopefully the prevailing wisdom at that point will be that tasers in school is simply not acceptable.

Taser := lawsuit.
