It is becoming a pattern that findings of death by "excited delirium" are being overturned upon judicial review.
- Mr. Dziekanski in Vancouver. Justice Braidwood determined that excited delirium was not the cause of death and that the concept itself was "unhelpful".
- Mr. Hyde in Halifax. Judge Derrick rejected the explanation of excited delirium and called it "a red-herring".
Putting yourself in the situation where a judge is forced by the obvious facts to correct your supposedly-expert medical findings is a huge embarrassment.
It's over... The era of getting "medical advice" from the manufacturer of electro-shock torture tools and their merry band of bought-and-paid-for deceptive minions.
Another point worth mentioning: It's a fact, tasers can kill.
If someone is tasered-and-dies, then do not reject the possibility that the taser caused the death. Frankly, you'd have to be a naive moron to take the insane position that the taser will be given a free pass. When someone is tasered-and-dies (immediately), then the obviously-significant direct and indirect effects of the taser must be placed at, or very near, the top of the list of possible causes-of-death.
Feel free to list as many contributing factors as the facts support. But it is an outright lie to claim that a taser cannot cause a death. An outright lie.
If you value your reputation, then you should be very careful about where you're obtaining your information about taser safety and "excited delirium" as a cause of death.
