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.

Sparks flew out of tasered man's chest

Police repeatedly fired a Taser into a man until a spark "like a piece of lightning" shot out of his chest, an inquest has heard. Witness Sandra Wynne yesterday told an inquest into the death of north Queensland man Antonio Galeano, 39,  how she begged a police officer to stop firing the 50,000-volt device.

"His face turned black," she said. "I could hear the buzzing of the Taser and Tony screaming in pain. Every time I could see a little spark, like a piece of lightning, coming out of his chest."

"I said to them: 'How many times can you hit him with that bloody thing until you kill him?'"

She broke into tears as she told the inquest how she watched as her lover died and his "eyes rolled back in his head." ... [LINK]
