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.

Smith on the complex issue of falling down

Mr. Smith, "Are tasers risk free? No, they cause people to fall down." [LINK]

This flimsy excuse, which is implying that the victims just 'fall down' (and bang their head?) is a non-starter. There have been very few (if any?) taser-associated deaths attributed to the victims lethally banging their head or anything else. Even if they did, then the coroner would have no problem identifying those instances.

But the coroners are often finding nothing at all... ...which means?

Hint -> [LINK]

That taser victims are falling down is not the issue.

The issue is that sometimes they don't get up again - ever.
