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.

Joining the dots...

Sewell also notes there is nothing in Braidwood's report "which a fair-minded person would construe as an attack or criticism of the petitioner's reputation."
[via TNT]

Judge Sewell doesn't understand about "2mA average".

Braidwood's report plus an understanding of the back-story in "How many amps in a police taser?" makes for some very interesting implications.

At long last, common sence prevails. For far to long, Taser International has held a big stick over the head of anyone who would come forward to challenge their scewed and payed for version of medical research.

I checked online with Taser's patent for the x26 shaped wave pulse, and the patent filing says the X26 system will draw about 3-4 amps from the two batteries when the trigger is pulled which is probably pretty close to the batteries max-1.7 each. See p28 of the PDF, lines 45-60.

Current and voltage can be freely exchanged by means of (most commonly) transformers. The X26 taser draws so much current out of the batteries that it is literally off-the-scale of the battery specification. Describing it as a low power device is a lie. In fact, in between being deceptive, they call the M26 and X26 tasers High Power devices.

You should also Goole "How many amps in a police taser?" for some additional details about taser output current values. More utter bald-face evil death-dealing deception in their use of "2mA average".
