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.

Former member of Taser International's Board to be sentenced

Bernard (Bernie) Kerik is due to be sentenced on Thursday (18 February 2010) to between 27 to 33 months (possibly more) in prison for his various hubris-laced crimes. Mr. Kerik was on the Board of Directors of Taser International between 2002 and 2005.

Does this now-convicted criminal reflect badly on Taser International?

I believe that the X26 taser, introduced to the market in mid-2003, should be named the "X26 Hubris" in his honor.
