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.

Nevada Highway Patrol stun-gun associated death

A motorist has died after he was subdued by Nevada Highway Patrol trooper stun guns during a Las Vegas freeway road rage confrontation. Officials refused to discuss the exact time-line, and the man's name has not been released.

Another case of someone that was tasered-and-instantly-reacted-and-died?

Refusing to discuss the time-line is often a sign that the "time-line" was more of a point-in-time.


UPDATE: Eduardo Lopez-Hernandez, 21 [via TNT]

Speculation: Age 21? Probably tasered with a trans-cardiac vector and was dead within minutes. Pure speculation.
