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.

What do they mean by, "particularly the X26" ?

The two self-appointed taser "experts" testifying at the Nugent Taser-death trial reportedly claim that tasers, "...particularly the TaserX26 model used by Nugent...", are not capable of causing harm to the subject. See [LINK] near end of Page 2.

"particularly" the X26?

What's with THAT?!?!

All the evidence that I've seen suggests that the X26 is the most dangerous taser ever marketed (compared to M26 and any other previous versions). I've not found any data on the newer products, except a mention that the X3 emits 40% less "charge" than the X26.

So, is this sub-claim one of those off-the-cuff, toss-away remarks made to decorate-up a larger false claim?
