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.

NZ Officers beat up after trusting taser

Two officers in New Zealand receive a good solid beating after putting their naive trust in their untrustworthy taser.

A police officer in Hamilton had to draw her gun after a colleague's taser failed to subdue a man during an attack at the weekend. ... Police say a taser was used on the man twice, but it had little effect and an attack on both officers by the father, his son and a sibling followed. ... Both officers were bruised and one had a ruptured blood vessel in an eye. ... [LINK]
