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.

So who is pushing 'Excited Delirium'?

We had already noted [LINK] that Taser lawyer Michael Brave [LINK] was (and is) the registered owner of the domain name www.ExcitedDelirium.com (no dash).

Well, it turns out that this [blankity-blank] Taser lawyer Mr. Brave is also the proud registered owner of the domain name www.Excited-Delirium.net [LINK]. This domain name is a redirect to the organization IPICD (suspected by some to be a front for Taser, indisputably preoccupied with excited delirium - which may effectively be the same thing). This domain was registered on 30-Apr-2008 (one can only assume in response to this blog of the same base name, ha ha ha).

I present this information just in case you were in any doubt about the relationship between Taser and the promotion of this ancient and mysterious non-evidence-leaving, convenient excuse-for-death, called 'excited delirium'.

If IPICD had registered these various 'excited delirium' domain names themselves, and Taser/Brave had sponsored the trivial cost of those registrations, then it would have been much more clever on their part. It would have been a case of nothing to see here - move along.

But as it is, they've left their Taser-to-'excited delirium' connections clearly documented for all to see.

Not exactly a bright move on their part.
