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.

Proposal - Take the 2008 Taser Challange

I need 100 volunteers from Taser International Inc. What we're going to do is subject them to a more significant tasering experience.

The barbs will be manually placed into their chest (pushed all the way in) so that the 'vector' matches that found to be most lethal on pigs (how appropriate...). The actual X26 tasers to be used will be tumble-dried for one minute in a normal dryer to simulate a few months of normal wear and tear. Any that fail in an obvious manner will be replaced. Each victim will be tasered for at least three minutes, and anyone owning more than 1000 shares will be tasered until the battery runs out.

Since the taser is 'completely incapable' of causing any serious harm (sic), I'm sure that the executive staff of Taser will be eager to try this tremendous PR opportunity.

Don't bother to invite me to join the party. I'm not suicidal.
