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.

Marin County Sheriff's Department - Peter McFarland - 29 June 2009

To Serve and Protect, or To Torture and Abuse?

30 August 2010 - Man sues Marin Sheriff after being tasered half-to-death in own home [LINK] [via PHB]

I guess I may have missed this story at the time.

It's obviously an evil incident and I hope Mr. McFarland wins a huge settlement or judgment.

As I've mentioned before, make 'em pay dearly for denial of wrong-doing. In this case it should be a million dollar option, on top of any other considerations.

The apparent silence from the overall law enforcement community regarding this incident is an embarrassing mark on them all. The evil Blue Brotherhood of Silence is a major part of the problem.

Or perhaps they just missed the news too...

The law enforcement community really needs to Get an Ethic and Have It Installed.
