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.

Warren Police Department drops Tasers after shocking letter from manufacturer

...After receiving an email that X26 and M26 Tasers more than 5 years old with certain serial numbers are past the recommended "deployment lifecycle"... Police officials said their review found that the Tasers were used unsuccessfully 23 percent of the time they were used by Warren officers... [LINK]
Did they mention "deployment lifespan" when they sold them to you? How long did you think that a cheaply-made plastic gun was going to last? Stun Gun salesmen... Have they got a deal for you...
