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.

Taser International "...a Fortune 500 business..."? LOL...

Unfortunately, the Chiefs of Police that use TASERs have delegated their duty to protect the public to a Fortune 500 business like TASER International whose sole concern is its bottom line. [LINK]
Yeah right, in their dreams...

No, not Fortune 500 (annual revenue of US$4.2 billion or more)

Not even 3% of the annual revenue to be Fortune 500.

Not even Fortune 1000 (annual revenue of US$1.5 billion or more)

Not even 10% of the annual revenue to be Fortune 1000.

They'd probably make the Evil 10 list.

They certainly punch above their weight when it comes to killing people and damaging society with the deceptive marketing that surrounds their sometimes-deadly "non-lethal" weapons.
