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.

Wendy's Stun Gun incident = "assault with a deadly weapon"

Salt Lake Tribune - It's interesting that a woman in Daytona Beach, Fla., has been charged with aggravated assault with a "deadly weapon" for chasing a Wendy's employee with a stun gun... I suppose stun guns are deadly if used by civilians, but not by law enforcement personnel, especially in Hurricane.

Daytona Beach, FL [AP] - ...Melanese Asia Reid ... pulled out a pink stun gun and chased the employee while Bryant cheered her on. ... Reid was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and Bryant was charged with being a principal to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
