Taser death of Robert Dziekanski is ruled homicide
The Coroner's Report has finally been issued, dated March 20, 2013. [LINK] The taser caused death of Robert Dziekanski has finally been official declared a "homicide". This term does not mean murder nor does it assign blame. It means that Mr Dziekanski did not "die", he was killed. What killed him? The taser of course. The Braidwood Inquiry previously found that the single most significant thing that happened between being alive and being dead was the taser hit. It was the primary factor. The Coroner's Report is in keeping with the findings of the Braidwood Inquiry. Tasers can kill. Not all the time of course, but it's a damn lie to claim that they're "safe". The folks that make this sort of claim are either thick or deceptive, or potentially both.
