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.

Taser of the (not Stockwell*) Day blogs

Link= Taser of the Day
Link= The Daily Tase

* For those that don't know about Stockwell Day, he's the Canadian Minister of 'Law & Order' (or 'Public Safety', or something like that...). He's been keeping a fairly low profile since the wave of taser-associated deaths in late-2007. I mean, as opposed to being outraged like the vast majority of Canadians.

This man is ultimately responsible for the safety and security of all Canadians.

This blog is not in any way against Stockwell Day, but if his thought processes are muddled-up with strange and archaic ideas then it may slow down the rate at which required changes are actually implemented. Being slow to make necessary changes could well result in unnecessary deaths, and that would be a real sin.
