My take on the Tasering incident at UF

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8ndctwAJmU

GAINESVILLE -- Anyone incensed by this other than me? I don't know what upsets me more: That this disgusting show of fascism happened at a university in the U.S. or that many of the people on the MiamiHerald.com message boards actually support such behavior? You silly sheep, you products of an assembly line education, you anti-Americans. Thank you Andrew Meyer for your patriotism. OK, those sentiments might be a little extreme, but regardless of what you assume or believe about WHY this happened, the truth of the matter is that a university student was Tasered during a public forum. Everything else is inconsequential. So what if he was obnoxious, so what if he rushed to the microphone, so what if he asked too many questions, SO WHAT IF HE STAGED IT or was seeking attention or has a history of practical jokes. The point is a student was assaulted by police during a public forum on a college campus for reasons unwarranted. Wake up people.

The police like to use the Taser. Once again it's use was unnecessary. Police intervention was unnecessary. College students wanting and insisting to be heard is a healthy event in a Republic. The young must be suffered to be heard even though older people must decide the great issues of the day.

I was there and in my opinion that kid was way out of line.

He was not Tasered because of what he said. He was tasered because he tried to fight off 4 police officers. He was warned several times by the women police officer that he was going to get tasered if he did not calm down. You see him to continue to pull away and they shocked him. This isnt about free speech or attacks against Kerry.

Coppers shouldn't have touched him in the first place.
