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.

So tasering helps the adminstration of justice exactly how?

Link= Chronicle-Telegram

"DUI charges were dropped by Sheffield in that incident in exchange for Fretter’s promise not to sue the village [over the crazy tasering incident]."

That's a pretty sleazy deal isn't it? No one should feel proud of the way that turned out.

And watching the video, one really needs to ask... What sort of puffter police are we hiring so that two burly policemen and one policewomen can't put a cuffed woman in a cell without resorting to using a taser?

Have all the police gone wussy?

What? If the batteries in the taser were dead, would this cuffed woman have cleared out the town police station and then gone on to rampage across the state?

Puffters. Go take an afternoon Judo class. Two hours should be enough to gain your self-confidence back.
