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.

Taser International suggests: "Avoiding chest..."

Aim low, try to hit a moving leg with the lower dart. Avoid chest. Maybe wander around to the subject's back. Shoot the taser into his back. Just avoid the chest. Puhleeze avoid the chest.

CTV Calgary [LINK] (well done!)

At least they've addressed the observation I made that taser training hits (always into the trainees' backs) are FAKE. But they certainly took an unexpected approach to resolving the discrepancy between the training and the real world.

And the Boise "Mounted" Police [LINK] [LINK] will be happy to see that the subject's anal regions are still considered a suitable target. Taser International is happy to accommodate their client's peculiar preferences.
