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.

Egypt has used tasers against peaceful protesters

CAIRO - ...A security official and witnesses said that military police surrounded protesters shortly after midnight, beating them with batons and using tasers to disperse a crowd of several hundred that had gathered to push for reforms. ... "Peaceful protesters in Tahrir are being chased away by the military police with tasers, sticks and whips. ..." [all over the news e.g. BBC]
This is a great PR opportunity for Taser International to issue a press release claiming credit for their involvement in crushing citizens of "an unnamed overseas client".

So, how about it Taser International? You got anything to say on the subject? Oh Steve? Hello?

Taser - an instrument of torture that can cause death.
