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.

Man tasered in neck for no apparent reason

A man is standing with his hands on the hood of a police car when an officer approaches him and gives him a good solid tasering into the neck. Street-level punishment? [LINK]

The man is obviously a racial minority. Right wing nut-job law-and-order types will try to claim that minorities bring this sort of police abuse on themselves through their own actions.

Yeah sure, like this gentleman, standing there with his hands on the police car.

It seems pretty clear that this incident is exactly what it appears to be: street-level electro-whipping.
