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.

CBC News - Braidwood ...also concluded that the officers later deliberately misrepresented what happened at the airport to justify their actions, and he called on the B.C. government to establish a civilian-led body to investigate police incidents in the future.

A deliberate misrepresentation is a lie.

For example: "TASER International Inc. ... says there is no evidence the stun gun has resulted in any fatalities..." [LINK]

(update) CTV - The report by the former B.C. judge is riddled with terms like "untrue", "misleading", "misrepresented", and "overstated", to describe the testimony of the four RCMP officers involved. [via TNT]

I hope that the criminal probe opens wide enough to examine the behaviour of the stun-gun salesmen.
