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.

Spare the taser, spoil the child

Extract from an off-line e-mail exchange related to tasering sports fans that invade the field '...because it is a good deterrent...'

"Spare the rod, spoil the child. We're suffering the ramifications."

And in unrelated [?] news...

Indictment: Parents used stun gun on children

The Virginian-Pilot (8 May 2010) - A man and woman accused of using a stun gun to discipline their children were indicted on charges of child cruelty and felony child neglect this week. Andrea L. Wilson, 37, and Regina E. Wilson, 32, ...both face three charges of child cruelty and four charges of child neglect. ... [LINK]

At this point it is worth high-lighting the fact that the recent Philly field jumper was, legally, a minor.

Clear enough?
