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.

Keep your eye on the time axis

Brian Cardall "...died within seconds of being shocked..." with a taser. [LINK]

The logic that Taser International and their minions use to try in their pathetic and laughable attempt to argue that such closely time-aligned events are not in a cause-and-effect relationship is exactly the same logic that can be used to show that it is possible that we are all just living in 'The Matrix' and nothing we see is actually real.

But back in the real world, the cause-and-effect relationship is crystal clear to anyone that is both informed and honest.

You can then move on to argue about the condition of the victim. But tasers are used ALL THE TIME on people that are having a mental health crisis or are drunk or high. If tasers can kill people in these circumstances, and such populations makes up about half [47%] of all taser deployments, then clearly tasers are not "safe".

And don't forget to Google the taser's "Curious Temporal Asymmetry".
