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.

Arse hit in arse by taser fired by arse

The South Australian Opposition Leader, Isobel Redmond, has been voluntarily hit with a Taser shot. ... Four people, including a doctor[!!!], were present at Liberal Party headquarters in Adelaide when she was hit on Monday. ...George Hateley, who fired the full-powered shot, says Ms. Redmond did not even fall down, "...which happens sometimes..." ...Mr. Hateley said he fired the Taser into her "...lower back and back side, the buttock..." [LINK]

George Hateley is the Australian distributor for tasers. He has been found making outrageously false statements. [LINK]

Pro-taser twit Isobel Redmond has been mentioned before. [LINK] She had a complete medical, brought the doctor along, and has now been tasered in the arse, all to prove that she has ...complete confidence in the safety of tasers...'

I wonder if she had to sign a waiver that included a mention of the risk of death?

With all the CYA (cover your ass) going on (medical check up, doctor in attendance, probably a legal waiver), it's amazing she was still hit there.

[Sometimes these posts just about write themselves...]
