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.

Taser found to be "...in good working order."

Antonio Carmelo Galeano's face 'turned black' after being Tasered by police

Antonio Carmelo Galeano, 39, died June 12 last year after being tasered 28 times was not given breathing assistance by police because they could not find a mask and gloves, a coronial hearing has been told. [LINK]

...analysis of the Taser had found it was in good working order.

It seems pretty clear to me that the subject in this case was tasered to death, but that's just a common sense reaction.

Perhaps certain people can look at this report and then claim that they're able to draw other conclusions. But perhaps they're not being completely honest. Perhaps they have other motivating factors than rational deduction.
