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.

UK Taser firm "Pro-Tect Ltd.2.0" (a.k.a. TSR Ltd. 1.0)

File under: "How stupid do you think we are?" (*)

(* Answer: "Very." Too bad it's the elected MPs that are asking...)

Pro-Tect were stripped of their licence in September. A spokesman for the Home Office told the Guardian: "Inquiries following the Raoul Moat operation revealed Pro-Tect breached its licence by supplying Tasers direct to police...The inquiries carried out by Northamptonshire police also revealed the company breached rules governing the secure transport of the devices and ammunition." ... [LINK]
Two months on, and the authorisation to supply Tasers has been handed over to Pro-Tect 2.0 Tactical Death Safety Responses Limited (TSR), also of Daventry, Northamptonshire... A number of committee members expressed surprise that both companies were in Daventry: TSR’s registered office lies, according to the AA route planner, just 1.8 miles – or seven minutes' drive – from that of Pro-Tect Ltd. ...
Intense questioning of Home Office official, Graham Widdecombe of the Policing Directorate, by Committee Chair Keith Vaz, and Dr Julian Huppert, Lib Dem MP for Cambridge, revealed some overlap of staff. ...
TSR Ltd was set up on 28 September – the same day that newspapers were reporting the demise of Pro-Tect’s contract...
...and the first director named on the TSR Ltd particulars is a Mr Glenn Cameron – who is also listed as Secretary for Pro-Tect Ltd. ...

In other words, the slime-ball stun gun salesmen are giving the finger to the elected MPs and the rules. And there's NOTHING that the MPs can do about it...

Ha ha...
