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-wielding cops charged with ASSAULT

Another source...

CBC - B.C. police charged after Taser used on man, 73

A Mountie from Surrey, BC, and a Metro Vancouver transit police officer have been charged with assault in connection with a 73-year-old man who was jolted with a taser after being arrested under the Mental Health Act. The incident happened in April when police responded to a call of a man with a knife causing a disturbance at a home. The man was taken to hospital, where he was stunned once by an RCMP taser and suffered facial injuries, police said. Const. Mitchell Speares is charged with assault and assault with a weapon... Const. Ken Jansen, a member of the BC Transportation Authority Police Service, is also charged with assault. [LINK]

Wilfully Inflicted Excruciating Pain=TORTURE; in ANY sane person's book, in ANY dictionary and in ANY language on the entire planet:
- And NO amount of slimy semantics, statistics slithering, sh*t sugaring, hocus pocus, jiggery pokery, conniving quackery,fake fakirism, puerile poppycock, banal balderdash, backwater bunkum or the most exotic of smoke and mirrors trickery conceived by Man or Woman, can ever alter that definition by ONE tiny iota, from now until Kingdom Come. Period.
