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.

X26 vice M26

Be careful that Taser doesn't bamboozle you and the jury by using the propaganda technique of pretending to ignore the various models. There are a slew of models, including some with a nice leopard-skin covering [rolls-eyes].

For example: the X26 and M26 have entirely different electrical waveform characteristics as discussed below. I suspect that the X26 waveform is more dangerous than the M26, because the X26 has all the bad points that Taser says are good points in the 'Advanced' M26. But that's just an observation.

If you're representing a victim of the X26, then keep them on-topic and don't let them slippery-slide into how safe the M26 really is...
