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.

Frank Paul - 12 years later...

This story has nothing to do with tasers.

This story has EVERYTHING to do with tasers.

A B.C. Supreme Court judge says Vancouver police submitted an "incomplete" report about the actions of two officers involved with a homeless man, Frank Paul, who died of hypothermia in 1998. ... [CBC News]
Justice Austin Cullen, who was the regional Crown lawyer at the time Frank Paul died, ...said the Vancouver Police Department report didn't include complete statements from the two officers or any recommendation on charges. There was enough evidence to suggest manslaughter charges but there was reasonable doubt about the officers' actions, he said. ...

12 years later, and still not sorted out.

An "incomplete" report.

Why do we allow it?
