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.

Unreliable P.o.S.

Syracuse, NY (October 19, 2009) - A suspect allegedly trying to flee arrest during a traffic stop Saturday shook off three shots from a taser... Barasheen R. Moody, 27, ...pulled out of Officer Scott Prutsman’s grasp and ran north... When Moody ignored Prutsman’s order to stop the officer fired his taser but Moody shook off its effects.... Two other shots also had no effect on Moody and after the third one Moody grabbed Prutsman’s right arm and tried to turn the taser on him, the officer reported. ... [LINK]

What the heck is going on? The same thing has been reported twice before in recent days. [LINK]

Update: The trend continues...

Pinellas Park - ...a motorist reported that a wild boar was running down busy Park Boulevard... Several officers chased it into a backyard, where one tried to use his taser on it, but it did not slow the animal. Instead, it turned and charged another officer, knocking him down. [LINK]
