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.

CBC - The Truth about Tasers

For those that might have missed it.

CBC investigative report (December 5, 2008) into tasers:

CBC News and Radio Canada commissioned the largest independent test of stun guns in the world. Frederic Zalac reports the alarming results:

A must see: CBC Taser Test - Part 1 [LINK]

For Part 2, follow the link on the above-linked CBC webpage.

The Deer In The Headlights facial expressions shown by the ever-faithful pro-taser fan-boys are priceless. Much like someone being shown evidence that their lover is a dirty cheat (it's just a romantic analogy - I'm not saying that Taser is a dirty cheat).

I'd love to have been a fly on the wall for the subsequent telephone calls and e-mails to Scottsdale. Is this why the RCMP and Taser have had a bit of a falling out recently?
