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.

Montreal to adopt common-sense (i.e. strict) restrictions on tasers

Montreal's Public Security Committee is reportedly set to recommend tough restrictions on the use of tasers. Although I can't read their minds, their reported recommendations are exactly what would be expected from those that are unconvinced by the false assurances of taser safety. Interestingly, the news report mentions that a minority report is calling for a moritorium.

This is obviously a huge win for common sense, moral judgment and ethical values. And those concerned citizens that have worked so hard to bring complete information to the attention of the committee members.

It is also a slap in the face for those that would promote positions that encourage taser overuse, misuse and abuse.
