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.

Wake Forest's Dr. Bozeman on taser safety

Dr. William P. Bozeman, Wake Forest University, is reported to have said:

"The Taser is a weapon and it can clearly cause injuries and even deaths in some cases." [LINK]

"[Tasers] are serious weapons. They absolutely have the potential to injure or kill people." [LINK]

See also previous post here: [LINK]

It's a wonder Dr. Bozeman hasn't been sued by Taser International... The Braidwood Inquiry made exactly the same conclusion (tasers can "cause death") and Taser International launched an appeal.

Taser International heavily promotes the top level findings of Bozeman et al. But they've never drawn any attention whatsoever to these obviously important statements attributed to Dr. Bozeman. That sort of deception does not look good when brought to the attention of the courts. Judges hate those that fail to tell the truth, the WHOLE TRUTH, and nothing but the truth.

PS: I wonder who deleted Dr. Bozeman's info at Zoominfo that indirectly led me to these quotes? I was forced to used cached information. LOL.

UPDATE: Hmmm... [LINK]
