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.

QOTW .... tasered while sleeping

Quote of the Week found at Truth...Not Tasers [LINK]

"The Edmonton Police Service changed its use of force policy that year to clarify that officers can no longer use tasers on people who are sleeping."

Well that's nice. And it reveals the sick truth about tasers, doesn't it?

Those sleeping subjects must be some of those "thousands" of lives saved as mentioned by the Solicitor General of Alberta [LINK]. Because if it wasn't for the police being equipped with tasers, then the police would have simply shot those sleeping people to death (???!!???!!??!!).

What a crock of sheet.

Tasers bring misuse, abuse and overuse to the point where they are a negative force in society.

In the words of the Solicitor General of Alberta: "...thousands..."

Yeah, thousands of something, but what?

Lives saved? Bull!!!!!

"Oh but we've changed the rules now! Everything is now perfect."


Amount of evidence required to fully justify action by Parliament = N

Amount of evidence we now have on hand = ~40N (roughly)
