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.

Excellent police work, until the taser is pulled

This may be the best taser video of the year.

As far as can be seen in the video, the two police officers are doing an amazing job. They show extreme patience and restraint. All they need to do is slip the cuffs on. Just slip the cuffs on. Nothing complicated, just slip the cuffs on. Two burly officers, one smaller subject. Cuffs. Wrists.

But then, one of the officers decides to draw his handy-dandy taser. Within seconds the subject has completely escaped. Watch the video...

"Effective" my ass.
