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.

Maybe Taser International should 'RTFM'

... Michael Brian Langan, 17, died in July 2008 after an altercation with police in a William Avenue back lane. An autopsy report obtained by the Free Press last year said Langan died of heart arrhythmia after police shocked him twice with a Taser. ... In the autopsy report, a medical examiner's report said Langan's death was due to "cardiac arrhythmia (ventricular fibrillation) due to deployment of electronic control device." The report also said Langan had a heart abnormality that contributed to his death, as did running from police. ... [LINK] [via TNT]

Review the following:
"The risk of an ECD application having a negative effect on a person's heart rate and/or rhythm is not zero."   AND SO MUCH MORE HERE -> [LINK]
"When possible avoiding chest shots with ECDs reduces the risk of affecting the heart and avoids the controversy about whether ECDs do or do not affect the human heart." They are slowly micro-stepping their safety warnings hoping that nobody will notice the slow change... [LINK]

If Taser International won't Read The F__king Manual, then the manual should be read aloud in court. [LINK]

Tasers Can Kill.

Even Taser International has been forced to admit that cold hard fact in their legal warnings.

And then they have the nerve to deny it ever happens.
