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.

Kaye downplayed any conclusion that Tasers kill people.

Looking for one of the root problems with tasers? It's insiders like Kaye that are much of the problem.
Owen Sound Police Chief Tom Kaye said he looks forward to the day when all frontline officers carry a Taser. [LINK]

Here's some background on Kaye:

26 September 2008: Utter and complete bull-crap [LINK]

21 February 2009: Look what we have to try to deal with... [LINK]

24 February 24 2009 "Combative behaviour" [LINK]

27 February 2009: Wishful thinking by Owen Sound Police Chief Tom Kaye [LINK]

1 March 2009: Use of Force = tasers 53% of the time? [LINK]

It's a cold hard fact that tasers can cause or contribute to death.

Kaye denies this. And that's a big problem.

It's a problem that needs to be addressed.
