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.

Quote of the Week

CBC - Questions for Tim Burrows

Hi Tim,

'The police officer's statement under oath is considered conclusive evidence under the Act.' — Public Works Protection Act

When did law enforcement stop following the law? If I have an unedited video of a crime, let's say it's of five officers tasering a man to death, does anyone in uniform actually believe we, the people of Canada, will stand for this?

The Ontario government has made a huge, stupid error. They forgot to explicitly invoke the Charter's infamous 'Notwithstanding Clause' (section 33).
