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.

"...medical history..."

(CP) VANCOUVER — Robert Dziekanski's medical history .... was the focus of investigators who traveled to Poland to examine the background of the man who died after being jolted by an RCMP taser... "... As part of a complete and comprehensive investigation, we always look into the health and habits and days that preceded somebody's departure to Canada. It's a routine investigative process."

It doesn't matter. You take your victims as you find them.

Whatever medical history Mr. Dziekanski may have had....it is nothing but a distraction.

Perfect health is extremely rare. By definition, half the population is below average health (or, to be more precise, median health - whatever that means).

If the only way to survive a taser attack is by being in perfect health, then it isn't exactly "safe" - is it?
