Anonymous wrote to me today regarding the French spy case re-reported below. Here's what Anonymous wants to know:

This guy is not a Taser employee, why are you posting false information??? This guy runs his own independent company that sell stun guns. What's your point here other then harassment??

To which, I replied:

Well, anonymous, there are many police officers who are not taser employees either, yet I post reports about police officers almost daily. This entire issue has dark, dank corners worldwide that haven’t yet seen the light of day. I sweep up the dustballs that catch my eye and deposit them into this one place (truthnottasers) until the day when someone can finally piece together the puzzle. That was the original intent of this website and so it remains. I am not here to harass anyone at all. Believe me, I don’t make this stuff up – who could?! I simply re-report it for the many who DO think I (and others) may be onto something. I believe it's all pretty relevant and relational.

yes but you only post about Taser and not the other situations police get into. you could make a diffeence but you lack focus. Your real value is in changing the system intead of trying to change taser policy. Now thw cops will shoot people instead of using a taser, you;ve swung to the opposite extream again

Dear Anonymous,

You haven't been paying the slightest attention to the larger taser issue.

Let's review the most important Taser-101 fact: Tasers are used by police roughly one hundred times as often as they historically ever used their guns. This figure varies widely and is a rough figure.

So if you believe that police "will shoot people instead of using a taser", then this simply reveals that you are unqualified to emit comments on the subject.

The authors of the Truth ... Not Tasers blog lost a brother and a son to a taser incident. They are perfectly entitled to focus their attention on the issue of tasers, their purported level of safety, and the all-too-frequent abuse, misuse and over-use.

Before you comment further, please review this blog from bottom to top, and then also review other blogs on the same subject such as Excited-Delirium.com (don't forget the dash).

There is not enough time in the day to provide this sort of one-on-one remedial education to address each and every ill-informed comment. This response has required 5 minutes of my life that I won't get back.
