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.

Quintrell T. Brannon taser-associated death settled out-of-court

An out-of-court settlement has been made in a lawsuit over the June 8, 2008, death of Quintrell T. Brannon, 25, at the Knox County Jail. He died at the jail less than an hour after Knox County Sheriff's deputies and Vincennes Police Department officers used a Taser to apply incredibly painful and potentially dangerous electric shocks to his person during an arrest. Pepper spray and reportedly-abusive physical restraint were also used. Terms of the settlement were not released.
