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.

A huge opportunity for Veterinary Pathologists

Taser International is reportedly introducing a taser intended to be used by animal control officers (and by extension, they will also be used in the dark recesses of unknown dog pounds in the World's trouble spots).

This presents an opportunity for some Veterinary Pathologists to get in on the ground floor. Sign up early, get wined and dined. Get paid "expenses" to attend conferences and meetings on the emerging field of fatal "excited delirium" in escaped elephants and rampaging rhinos.

Lowly Animal Control Officers can get in on the action too. All they'd have to do is demonstrate the ability to sell tasers to their employer on behalf of Taser International, without being distracted by all those pesky Conflict of Interest rules. Who knows? Maybe they'll be awarded a lucrative contract to "design a taser holster."
