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 (TASR) wins patent judgment on randomly-deadly waveform

PRESS RELEASE (Aug. 31, 2010) - TASER International Wins Judgment and Final Injunction in Patent Infringement Against Stinger Systems, Inc. - U.S. District Court Issues Final Injunction Against Stinger S-200

In other words, Taser International owns the exclusive rights to the sometimes-deadly, often-unreliable, taser waveform as used in the X26 taser.

This is the waveform that includes the DC pulse after the arc phase. A DC pulse that creates (is) more-dangerous low frequency and more-dangerous continuous 100% duty cycle.

It's worth noting that Stinger Systems reportedly used 75% less output than the X26 taser, and they reportedly made no false promises of safety.

If this randomly-deadly waveform represents the "Intellectual Property" of Taser International, then that's a reflection of the people that run the outfit.
