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.

Tasered, "wasn't breathing", died. Deja vu

UPDATE: Adam Colliers [LINK]

Prediction: it was probably a hit from an X26 Taser, with a transcardiac vector.

A 25-year old Sultan man is dead after a Taser shock during an encounter with Snohomish County sheriff's deputies. ... After the man was hit, the deputies found he wasn't breathing. They began CPR and called for medical aid. The man was taken to a hospital but could not be revived. This is the second time in a week that a man has died in Western Washington after being shocked by a Taser. A 27-year-old stopped breathing in Spanaway on Tuesday during an encounter with Pierce County police.

Stopped breathing.

Sound familiar?

Conclusion: tasers can kill.

Anyone that denies this obvious fact is either ill-informed, misled or an evil liar.
