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.

A strange case of CSDFR

Yes... Canine Sudden Death Following Restraint [LINK]

Feynman on the difference between naming and knowing: [LINK] (YouTube)

Applies to Excited Delirium and especially Sudden Death Following Restraint [LINK].

If a philosophy professor were chained down and forced to listen to the 'logic' from the spokespuppet, it would be considered cruel and unusual punishment...

'Look. In 200 tests, there was no harm,' said the spokespuppet.

'But one died last night, and two more the week before,' retorts the observer.

'Well then, that makes 203 cases where there was no PROVEN harm. See?'
