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.

Taser International (TASR) - I know where the profit went...

News this morning:

Taser International (TASR) lost $2.3 million during July-September 2010 3rd Quarter

News from mid-August 2010:

Taser International settles with Steven Butler for $2.85 million [LINK]

Obviously, I'm not privy to the exact timing of the settlement payment. But if it wasn't paid during this latest 3rd Quarter, then maybe it's still pending - in which case LOL.

By the way, the bad news wiped about $20M off their market cap.
