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.

Special 'Wildlife' Taser flummoxed by fur

File under: Utter Failure
Cross-file under: Stupid, stupid, stupid

For the record, I'm totally unsurprised by the following report.

...Fish and Game biologists recently tried and failed to stun the moose with a special wildlife Taser so they could remove the rope... "We got a couple shots at her, but we couldn't get both probes to stick, probably because of her thick winter hair," said Fairbanks area biologist Don Young. ...The moose "showed no reaction as if it had got shocked." [LINK]

A specially-designed 'Wildlife' taser that cannot penetrate fur.

"Gee, it work so reliably on the lizards around Scottsdale, Arizona. We never thought about fur..." Duh...


I'm now standing-by for the first report of an animal dying of "excited delirium" while being tasered for ten minutes, and the mindless taser fanboys explaining how the animal deserved to die anyway...
