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 International claims Braidwood Inquiry hurt business

Taser International's last-hope appeal of the Braidwood Inquiry's conclusions about the exaggerated claims of safety is set to begin on Monday.

CTV reports that the appeal will include complaints about how much their business has been affected. [LINK]

See also CP story via [LINK]. See also Vancouver Sun [LINK].

Which leads directly to the question for the SEC, why didn't Taser International's Annual Report (dated 15 March 2010) include any mention, direct or indirect, even a hint..., about the Braidwood Inquiry? [LINK] Isn't this an obvious case of stock fraud (FAILURE TO DISCLOSE)? Hey, I'm just asking!

Another Class Action lawsuit by shareholders against the management and directors of Taser International (TASR) seems like a reasonable next step at this point. Last time they had to pay out $20-million to settle a similar shareholder claim about deceptive behavior. [LINK]
