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.

Next up - Parliamentary Committee

I haven't found the details yet [see update below]. But this morning CBC Radio mentioned that Taser Chairman Smith has been invited to appear at a committee meeting in the next few weeks.

I URGE THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS TO BRING IN SOME INDEPENDENT EXPERT WITNESSES. You need people with names that start with 'Prof.' and that are squeaky clean and not in Taser's pocket. Those experts (if they're new to the topic) need to start their review NOW. They can start with some of the issues identified in this blog. Use this blog as a 'suggestion box' for a laundry list of things to check. Please check all facts for yourself. The blog provides links back to applicable sources.

Link= SECU (This is the Commons Committee in question.)

Update: See newer post titled Mr. Smith goes to Ottawa (30 Jan. 2008) for details.
