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.

Dog tasered_and_died

Altoona, PA city police killed what an officer said was an aggressive pit bull Saturday evening after a neighbor of the dog's owner called the police. Cpl. Bill Boyles, who did not respond to the scene but was briefed on the incident, said two pit bulls were running loose in the area of Howard Avenue and First Street about 6:30 p.m. After attempts to find the dogs' owner failed, Boyles said Sgt. William Gibbons struck one of the dogs with a Taser. Boyles said he assumed that is what killed the animal.

A spokespuppet from Taser International should be along shortly to claim that the dog coincidentally died of 'excited delirium', had a history of drug use, had a pre-existing heart condition, was drunk, was suffering from alcohol withdrawal, and would have died anyway on that day, at that hour, at that minute...

UPDATE: You think I'm joking? See [LINK]. It's not me that's laughing at you.
