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.

AZ Deputy Raul Alvarado and the case of the tasered frog

There are some fairly weird freaks walking this planet. Problem is, some of them are equipped with portable electro-torture devices.

See [LINK].


A new thought:

The ethical boundary of morally-acceptable taser use is apparently insufficiently clear for some. The old fashioned gun is more clearly black and white, and its ethical use limits are sufficiently clear that even the ethically-deficient can stay out of trouble.

This may help to explain the real world problems with tasers.
