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.

Desperately seeking a jury of his peers

[CORRECTED: Request is from DA, not Nugent.]

Former Winnfield policeman Scott Nugent is accused of tasering-to-death Barron 'Scooter' Pikes in 2008. The DA has asked to have his trial moved to a new venue. [LINK]

Nugent's lawyers have also requested that a video NOT be shown during the trial.

You know... "PROTECTING TRUTH", and all that.
