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.

Julian Fantino is off-the-rails himself

File under: politics, Canadian.
Cross-file under: "off the rails"

Former shopping mall security guard, wiretap enthusiast, turned OPP Commish, apparently-uncritical taser fanboy [LINK], turned Conservative Party Member of Parliament  Julian 'Off-The-Rails' Fantino  has put his leather clad foot into his over-sized mouth within days of being appointed as Minister of the Elderly [perhaps excluding elderly liberals]:

Barely four days after squeaking into office, Julian Fantino crossed the line by using an offensive analogy that compared a democratic political party in Canada to the Nazi regime.” [LINK]

Added: See also Newt Gingrich on Obama for an unflattering yet illuminating parallel [LINK] .
