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.

Police Minister Michael Daley a “no brainer”

The benefits of Tasers are obvious, they present an option which is infinitely less lethal than a firearm,” he actually said. “To me, the use of Tasers is a no brainer. Without them, the only choice of weapon an officer would have available to them when in a life-threatening situation would be their firearm, in which case the chances of the offender being killed are extremely high.” ... [LINK]

Tasers have been actually fired about 300 times in this jurisdiction [973 less 69%, ibid].

"Therefore" (sic), if not for the tasers, the NSW Police would have gone on a murderous rampage never seen before in civilized society (?). "Hundreds of lives have been saved."
