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.

Ryan Bain tasered at least four times and died of "excited delirium"

Billings, MT - Medical records list "excited delirium" as the primary cause of death of a Billings man who was shocked with a stun gun at least four times as officers tried to arrest him last October. Ryan Bain went into cardiac arrest at the jail and died two days later. ... [LINK]

Gee, I wonder if there might be any other possible explanation?

Maybe the manufacturer of the stun gun in question quietly released some information back around, oh... May 1, 2010 regarding the possibility that their products actually might cause cardiac effects and actually might sometimes even cause death.
