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.

Taser to the head might be harmful

In the category of 'No sh_t Einstein...', it has been noted that discharging 50,000 volts (peak) with a current variously reported as 150mA RMS, or 2mA "average", into the human brain might cause seizures. [LINK]

They should put the taser probes on the temples of those that claim that tasers are perfectly safe. It might help to improve their clarity of thought.

(NOTE - Sarcasm. I do not recommend such murder by taser across the head.)

Don't worry - nobody in the USA reads CBC News...
