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.

Turn around and try again

A taser can prevent injuries to officers, citizens and subjects

Especially if they would be restricted to shooting them in the subject's back (never chest).

Another FAKE demonstration:

After making sure everyone was ready, Whisnant said, "Taser, Taser, Taser," and pulled the trigger. The weapon's two small probes flew into Duckett's back. [LINK]

Have a look at the picture at the above link. How often does this happen in the real world?

In fact, this training methodology is evidence that those that recommend such FAKE 'in the back' shots for training (Taser themselves) are not quite as certain about the taser's safety as they say.
