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.

How to prevent most taser "associated" deaths

Here is the sequence of a typical taser "associated" death:

Someone is acting irrationally. Police are called. The police race to the scene. The subject is tasered, immediately becomes unresponsive, and dies. The interval between being tasered and the onset of death is often extremely short. Example: [LINK].

The next part of the typical sequence is that the coroner, having been brainwashed by deceptive propaganda, concludes that the use of the taser was not a cause of death. They conclude that the death was from other causes.

So, following this logic, all the police need to do to totally prevent a taser "associated" death (not prevent the death, but prevent it being associated with their taser) is just drive a bit slower while enroute to the scene. If they were to arrive even one minute later, then the subject would crumple to the ground while the officer was still reaching for his taser.

The police would be able to honestly report that they were considering use of the taser, but the subject died all by himself during that extra minute.

The above suggestion follows logically from the denial of causality in so many taser "associated" deaths.
