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.

Western Australia Police Union bemoan taser misuse inquiry

The head of the Western Australia Police Union bemoans the "impact" of the investigation into taser horseplay at the Rockingham Police Station. [LINK]

Ahhh... My heart bleeds for your hurt feelings. NOT!

Damn puffters, wussies and fruitbats.

--

Such horseplay reveals an underlying attitude that these officers believe that tasers are harmless playthings. That attitude is wrong and dangerous.

THAT's the issue.

The truth is that tasers are a tool of electro-torture and (with abuse or pure bad luck) they have the capability to kill.

The involved officers shouldn't be fired or given desk jobs.

They should be jailed.

Intentional misuse of a weapon is typically a criminal offense.
