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.

Dr. Tseng guts Taser

Dr. Tseng said "If somebody dies and they find no cause of death, it's almost certainly an arrhythmic death," adding that tasers can affect a person's heartbeat long after the event.

Truth ... Not Tasers [LINK]

Dr. Tseng said tasers may be able to play a role in law enforcement, but the way they're used should be re-examined.

Perhaps so. But we still need to hold the Taser clowns accountable for their behaviour. I suspect that there may be grounds for both civil and criminal actions (just my opinion). And perhaps the legal system would want to revisit some earlier decisions...
