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.

UPI: "Deputy's stun gun shot kills Calif. man "

Headline writers getting their mojo back.

Deputy's stun gun shot kills Calif. man [LINK]

[Assuming that the 'stungun' was a Taser-brand taser such as the X26...]

Given that Taser International has (1 May 2010, Training Package) confessed that tasers are in fact perfectly capable of causing death, it is certainly reasonable to conclude that at least some (many?, most?) taser-associated deaths were actually (meaning that even Taser International is forced to agree) caused directly by the taser.

It's now time to correlate the news reports against the taser's Curious Temporal Asymmetry [LINK].
