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.

Time's up...

Time's up.

"...the force must be directed to rewrite its rules and reform its conduct regarding taser-gun use and exertion of force in order to spare the lives of those Canadians who aren't a picture of health." [LINK]

The Parliamentary deadline of 15th December 2008 is pretty much gone (unless something happens in the next few hours). Did the RCMP fully embrace all the requested (correction: demanded) taser policy changes? Last I heard they were still looking at their shoes, kicking the floor, and mumbling something.


Ding Ding Ding - time's up.
