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.

RCMP to SECU: (well?)

The Parliamentary Committee (SECU) studying tasers told the RCMP to reclassify the taser as an impact weapon before mid-December 2008. I wouldn't have been on the distribution list for any memos, but I don't recall seeing anything in the news that the RCMP have accepted this direction (it wasn't exactly a request - it was an 'or else').

Maybe everyone in Canada should have Taser's certified Brainwashing session so that we will all understand and stop questioning Taser's official policy that tasers-r-safe.
