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.

Western Australia coughs to five additional taser torture incidents

... Attorney-General Christian Porter told Parliament yesterday that Corrective Services officers used their Tasers on six occasions in the last five years. In half of those events, Tasers were deployed more than 10 times. In the other cases, they were used a maximum of three times. One of those incidents involved Kevin Spratt, the man who was tasered by police 13 times in August 2008. ... [LINK]

Is this a complete list?

Well, one quick observation is that Kevin Spratt was taser-tortured TWICE within a week.

So the statement that "One of those incidents involved Kevin Spratt..." is clearly incorrect.
