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.

RCMP email 'bombshell' on Braidwood Inquiry

CBC News - Newly disclosed RCMP email drops bombshell on Taser inquiry [LINK]

The email between two senior RCMP supervisors suggests that the four Mounties who responded to a call at the airport discussed a plan to use a taser against the Polish immigrant before they arrived. The four officers had already stated under oath at the inquiry that they had not discussed using the stun gun before arriving at the airport.

The commission was scheduled to begin hearing closing arguments on Friday morning, but after learning of the email, commissioner Thomas Braidwood announced the inquiry will resume on Sept. 22, so the commission lawyers have time to review the email and conduct an investigation.

"I am obviously appalled," a clearly upset Braidwood said.

Man oh man.

I'll betcha a dollar that between now and September they find even more information that damages the four officers and the RCMP.
