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.

Malaysia considers purchasing 30,000 tasers

The news today reported that the stock price for Taser International (TASR) shot up by about 16% 24% after they announced that they've sold a couple of thousand units. I thought that it was a bit of an over-reaction, but what do I know? I didn't realize it was big news when Taser International actually sells some tasers.

Anyway, that reaction makes me wonder what would happen if the hoped-for sale of 30,000 tasers to Malaysia, reportedly and inexplicably at several times the usual price (?), ...it makes me wonder what would happen to the stock price if that Malaysian order rolled out of the fax machine?
