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.

The advantage of being ignorant...

Taser wins another case.

"...Taser argued that it did not know that the muscle contractions produced by the weapon were strong enough to cause a fracture."

See? If you're a moron you can get away with almost anything.

Link= Taser - the advantage of being ignorant

Here's the point: A careful engineer would have consulted a medical expert and they could have made a list of risks liable to occur when high voltage is applied to a human. This list would likely be several pages in length, and self-fracturing of bones would be on the top half of page 1.

Has anyone subpoenaed Taser's design files?

Don't worry, eventually one of these lawsuits will stick.
