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.

Taser has a great day - stock drops

Taser held their Annual Meeting today (28 May 2008). It must have been an interesting day. I have visions of an angry mob of shareholders clutching torches and pitchforks, and noosed ropes being tossed over sturdy tree limbs.

Smith-for-brains announced some sort of new (overpriced) walkie-talkie product [yawn]. They announced that they've won dismissals in a couple of lawsuits. And some unhappy shareholders are going after some naked short sellers (yeah, good luck with that...). Seems like a good day for Taser.

But even with all this good news, the share price dropped a bit over 1% today. The price is within a few cents of it's 52-week low. And with all these inquiries and reports coming out, it looks to be a very interesting summer (just my opinion).
