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.

Deployed taser, "THAT'S WHEN the man became unresponsive"

Collingwood, ON - More on the taser death of a 27-year old man [update: Aron Firman].
...Officers deployed a conductive energy weapon - known as a taser - to subdue the man. That's when the man became "unresponsive," the SIU said. ...

"That's when..."

This sad death, being so self-evidently in a tight temporal (cause-and-effect) relationship with the taser deployment, isn't exactly going to help Taser International with their insane appeal of Braidwood's perfectly-logical conclusion that tasers are fully capable of causing death.

Apparently their appeal is set to be heard within the next few weeks.
