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.

Judge questions Taser rules constitutionality

A federal judge decided last week he wanted to hear more evidence about whether police rules for using Tasers are inadequate and unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Timothy Black said the evidence he's seen so far shows that police officers are "permitted" [by defective policy] to use Tasers against people who are not suspected of committing a serious crime and who do not pose a threat of harm to anyone else.

Ah, yeah, duh!

Grade 6 Civics class is all that's required to figure this out.

Tasers are torture. Tasers are potentially deadly. Tasers are almost always excessive force.

And anyone that denies these obvious facts is a threat to civil society.
