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.

What's N ?

The Truth...Not Tasers blog: "... Apparently, on May 9th (and this is the first I've heard of it), a fellow named Audreacus Davis died after being tased five times and given a medication to calm him down. ..." [LINK]

For taser-associated deaths:

N = Actual Total Number / Number Listed (*)

(* The List [LINK])

What's N ?

I hope it's very close to unity. We assume it's very close to unity. We assume that the vast majority of taser-associated deaths are listed.

But how on earth could we be assured that N is not 1.2, or 1.5, or 2.3, or... ???

Would those that have the information be motivated to keep it quiet?
