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.

Steven Avila's condition improving

The condition of 16-year-old Steven Avila, who was nearly killed "with a taser", is improving. [LINK]

Taser International will now be left scratching their heads trying to invent a mythical pre-existing medical condition that can go (presumably) from being completely unnoticed for 16 years, to being life-threateningly critical, back to being in recovery.

A simpler explanation is that his heart rhythm was directly affected by the shock from the taser. This is something that Taser International has strenuously denied, due to simple technical errors, obvious deception, and what might be outright criminal fraud.

The Feds should be investigating those running this company.
