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.

Stephen Palmer - tasered and died of inconclusive causes

A certain Stephen Palmer is (was?) the (former?) Executive Director of (what once was?) the Canadian Police Research Centre [LINK] (a.k.a. CPRI, a.k.a. CITIG [LINK]).

The CPRC basically tasered themselves to death. They were (in my opinion) seduced by the slick talking stungun salesmen [LINK], got way too involved with defending the safety of tasers [LINK], and then they appear to have had their chain yanked (hard) [LINK], and appear to have been shut down [LINK].

And now, tragically, Stephen Palmer has been tasered and died.

#465 - December 30, 2009: Stephen Palmer, 47, Stamford, Connecticut [LINK] [LINK]

Of course, it's not (as far as we know) the same Stephen Palmer. But still... ...the irony. Seriously, you really couldn't make this sh_t up.
