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.

Who is "Dr." Mark W. Kroll

First - Dr. Mark W. Kroll is NOT a real (medical) doctor.

"Kroll holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota; and a MBA from the University of St. Thomas."

I don't see any medical qualifications listed there at all. None.

For a review of Kroll's ideas on medical matters (such as the relative risk of 'excited delirium' as compared to a good solid tasering), please review the multiple pages of comments starting here [LINK].

If you want to see the laughing face of The Man that forgot Fourier, then click here [LINK].

MORE: Kroll is also the author of Taser International's gold-plated liability bulls-eye article on "Cardiac Safety". I'm not positive, but it appears that this article has been yanked from their website.

Plaintiffs' lawyers need to get a copy of this article that compares repeated taser hits to being repeatedly hit with a ping pong ball.

Contact the blog if you require pointers.
