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.

OAKWOOD, Texas — The chief of a small Central Texas town's police department has been fired and jailed for allegedly using a Taser gun on his wife. ... [LINK]

By the usual standards commonly applied, this would be counted as a life saved. The lunacy of such claims is made more clear by this example where the victim happened to be his wife.

Update: Another 'live saved'...

FOREST ACRES, S.C. -- A South Carolina police officer has been fired and faces a criminal charge after authorities say he used his department-issued Taser to attack his older brother. ... [LINK]
