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.

Quote of the Century - How long will it take?

This news story has nothing to do with tasers.
This news story has everything to do with tasers.

Mounties in Kelowna, B.C., are attempting damage control after an officer was videotaped kicking a co-operative suspect in the face. [LINK]

UPDATED: News report on YouTube: [YouTube].
Comment on CBC: "How long will it take the R.C.M.P. to understand the new reality of citizen witnesses with cell phone cameras? This is the 21st century."
Honestly? Probably about ten more years; maybe twelve. Seriously.

See previous post [LINK]:
And all caught on video! I swear to God that there will one day be an example of such feral cop abuse caught on fricken Imax 70mm 3D film with 7.1 channel surround sound. The first question in court will be, "Officer, at what point did you and your collegues notice the 300-strong film crew from NHK Japan and the Discovery Channel USA filming your activities?"

If you stop and think deeply about what happened in this incident, there's only one rational [?] explanation. It's exactly the same thing as revealed by the Ottawa-Bonds incident and many others (including Mr. Dziekanski's death-by-taser). The explanation reveals an ingrained attitude deeply embedded within the law enforcement community.

In their warped minds, they honestly don't think that they're doing anything wrong.

Seriously. It's not that they're foreground evil (although their actions clearly are), it's that their minds are warped by a serious intellectual malfunction. They simply don't get it.

It's actually much worse than simple, intentional, abuse. It's more endemic than that.

Homework: Have a quiet period of contemplation and try to figure out why an RCMP officer would kick a cooperative subject in the face. Try to explain it in your own mind. When it get's scary, then you've got it all figured it out.

Any normal human wouldn't kick a cooperative subject in the face.

You need to have a form of embedded insanity for it to even be possible.

These are not simply isolated incidents. They're far worse than that.

That's why this post has everything to do with tasers.
