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.

21-year-old Eduardo Lopez-Hernandez - tasered, stopped breathing, died.

The upcoming inquest was to examine the actions of officers involved in the death of 21-year-old Eduardo Lopez-Hernandez. He was arrested and stunned with a Taser following what police described as a road rage incident the night of Aug. 25. After he was stunned, officers said Lopez-Hernandez stopped breathing. He was rushed to University Medical Center but died a short time later. [LINK]

Gee, I wonder if the taser had anything at all to do with his death?
