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.

Bruce Culver, Independent Director

Looks like someone is cashing in some stock options...

11/01/07, CULVER BRUCE R, Director, Buy 43,334 $0.31/share
11/01/07, CULVER BRUCE R, Director, Buy 6,666 $0.38/share
11/01/07, CULVER BRUCE R, Director, Sell 50,000 $16.09/share

That's about $788,000 profit on exercising the two options.

The point is that these guys are dealing with some fairly substantial amounts of personal money. There's nothing wrong with making some good money, but there's also nothing wrong with making sure it is well known to people following the larger taser debate.

(For the record, I am not financially involved in this topic in any way. I'm just a normal Canadian that really doesn't like the way this whole taser issue is being presented by Taser and the police.)
