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.

Bahrain trying on Taser International's latest excuse: sickle cell disease

BBC News - Two Bahraini Shia activists who were detained after weeks of anti-government protests have died in police custody. ... Another detainee, Zakaraya Rashed Hassan, 40, had died of sickle cell disease, the ministry added. It was the second such death in a week. Several Shia activists have complained of being tortured while in custody. ... Human Rights Watch said both the families of the men who died of sickle-cell disease, according to official records, had dismissed the findings. [LINK]

Sickle cell disease [LINK] - the latest version of...

"Ah, oh yeah. Like, he fell down the stairs."
"Yeah, like my partner said: he fell fell down the stairs."
"Yeah, six times! Ha ha ha..."
"Ha ha ha..."
