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.

US Federal Agents swoop down on civil rights violator

Sleepy Hollow Detective Jose Quinoy was arrested and was to be arraigned in U.S. District Court in White Plains on charges that he violated the victims' civil rights. ...

He was not charged in connection with another incident that federal agents had reportedly been investigating. In that August 2007 incident, a 17-year-old village boy, Duanny Lara Mota, was stunned with a taser during an encounter with Quinoy after riding his bicycle on a village sidewalk. Mota has since filed a civil lawsuit against the village and the detective.

So US Federal Agents are now investigating allegations of taser abuse.

Nice. Very nice.

Now in Canada, what agency would investigate in cases where RCMP members were accused of abusing their tasers?

Aren't we supposed to have a separation of The Church of Taser and The State of Denial?
