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.

Middletown, CT School Board 'expels' taser-happy SROs

Best taser story of the month.

Geesh. It's only September and the taser-happy School Resource Officers / Police have gotten themselves expelled from Middletown, CT schools. [LINK]

The Middletown Board of Education made the decision on Tuesday during an executive session to permanently remove officers from the three schools to which officers are assigned, the Middletown Press reports.

It's nice to see that the outraged and concerned parents, and the thoughtful and wise School Board have the basic common sense to see what's wrong and what obviously needs to be done...

"It is not acceptable to subject the kids to any electrocution as a form of discipline."

...Because the SROs and associated police have ZERO common sense, to the point that they just don't get it.

"The (Police) Union 100 percent backs the officers. In this case, the use of force was completely appropriate. It’s clear that (the SROs) did nothing wrong," Derek Puorro, the union president...

Blah blah blah...

Yeah, but you're still expelled.
