Taser executive caught lying his damn fool ass off

...according to the folks at Wired News' blog "Danger Room." The conflict involves an earlier item on the blog titled "Taser Zaps Critics - So Far" (Link), which questions the stun gun maker's claims that "Zapping someone with 50,000 volts will never, ever, under any circumstances, help kill him."

Link to today's followup post with Taser International Inc.'s response. The post includes heated debate over the definition of "heart failure," a concept which is relatively unambiguous for the rest of us. (thanks, Noah Shachtman)
