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.

Canadians 'dead set' against tasers

Globe and Mail newspaper article about Taser "yakkity yak" excuses why their products fail-unsafe. [LINK]

About 50 public comments and the VAST MAJORITY (90+%) are strongly against tasers and Taser. [LINK] It's a big swing in public opinion over the past year or so.

And those making the very few pro-taser comments are presenting old and stale arguments ("...better than a gun..."); which indicates that they've not been following the issue at all.

Oh - and on the subject of Taser Quality Assurance - see this post [LINK] at the Truth...Not Tasers blog.

What a fiasco.
