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.

Pigs vs. Humans & M26 vs. X26

Taser points out that pigs are not exactly the same as humans.

I'd like to remind everyone that the difference between pigs and humans is almost certainly much less than the differences between the older (well-studied, possibly safer) M26 taser and the newer (less studied, probably more dangerous) X26 taser.

Also, that famous two-foot pile of studies that Taser bought and paid for, if they address the M26 taser, then they have no bearing on the newer X26 taser.
