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.

OPP Sgt. extrapolates to defend Taser International

Ontario Provincial Police Sgt. Joe Bosie said Sunday that officers received a memo about the new policies last week. "It makes sense," said Bosie. "Those probes or needles are very sharp and if you were to discharge a taser in or above the heart area like the neck or eyes it could cause serious injury." [LINK]

Yeah, that's the reason for the change to the taser targeting guidelines. The taser darts are very sharp and if they were to hit an eye or neck, those darn sharp needles might cause an injury. Yeah, sure, yeah... I believe that. Yeah, sure.


(And just a bit too obvious there, Sgt. Bosie.)
