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.

Manitoba set to join upward curve

Truth ... Not Tasers blog [LINK] reports that the Manitoba RCMP are replacing their old (M26?) tasers with newer (X26?) tasers.

There is some circumstantial evidence that the newer X26 may be more dangerous than the older M26. [LINK] Everything that Taser claimed was safe on the M26 (high frequency, short pulses) is the opposite on the X26 (19 Hz low frequency, continuous 100% duty cycle for each 5-second cycle). [LINK]

The RCMP aren't relying just on information provided by the manufacturer are they? Or other experts that got their information from the same place?
