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.

Billo the blogger

Who is Billo the blogger? We first met him here [LINK].

Fairly right-wing. Seems to dislike liberals and socialist countries like Canada. Seems to be a 'law and order' type (which can be dangerous). Seems to love Bush. Spouts words that sound exactly like those coming from well-known Taser spokespuppets. Also treats the word taser carefully, writing it in all uppercase letters like he was told to. Religious, but might be flummoxed by the question, "What would Jesus do, with a taser?"

And he's on the NIJ panel. Which explains a lot.

And given his middling qualifications, how did he end up on the panel? Hey, I'm just asking!

He denies that there is any possibility of the taser causing any internal risks. Only allows external risks. Might as well be another Kroll.

Be advised that I'm not going to get into a back-and-forth argument with Taser spokespuppets. Waste of time.

But I will continue to shred pro-taser arguments.

[Update: toned down a notch]
