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.

Niagara Regional Police will avoid taser chest hits

Niagara Regional Police have joined the growing ranks of police forces changing their Taser policies following a warning by the weapon’s manufacturer. Last week, the NRP changed its use of Taser policy, instructing officers not to shoot the weapons into the chests of suspects after Taser International said it might be dangerous. ...

LOL. I'm really enjoying this...

It's because Taser International tried so hard to nuance the wording: "...avoid controversy...". But the fundamental truth, as so clearly indicated by the new Taser Man targeting guidelines image, has completely swamped their subtle intent.

They must be very frustrated by how this is being interpreted (i.e. correctly) by audiences in Canada and Australia.

In other words, the truth has squirmed free in spite of their attempt to muddle it.

As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
