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's understatement of the decade

Steve Tuttle, TASER's vice-president of communication. "We are not medical experts..." [DEAD LINK][NEW LINK]

Well Steve. I think I can speak for all humanity:

We're very happy to see that you clots finally figured that out.


PS: Would I be able to request an autographed copy of "Dr." Mark W. Kroll's infamous "ping pong" paper that was, for I don't know how many years, prominently published on the Taser International website under the heading "CARDIAC SAFETY"?

I've got a softcopy on file, but it sure would be nice to have an autographed copy on hand (as a warning to future generations).


Oh, remind me. Was it "65 lbs" that was the lower weight limit for the medically-safe electro-shock tasering of naughty children? I seem to recall that it was 65 lbs that was judged by Taser International and/or their minions to be the medically-safe lower weight limit. Was it 65 pounds? Can you remind us?
