    This happened yesterday at the University of Florida while Senator John Kerry was having an open discussion forum with the students there. One student asked an awkward question that was just a tad wacko but wasn't completely out of line. Kerry was even going to respond to his question when the jack-booted campus thugs grabbed the kid and arrested him.

    There was no reason to rush in and arrest him the way they did, and was a blatant disregard for the first amendment. He wasn't causing a disruption, but because he asked Kerry an uncomfortable question the speech nazis rush in to silence him. If I were that kid I would have fought, too.

    I'm no Kerry supporter by a long shot, but this kind of shit was uncalled for!

    The female cop kept ordering him to stop resisting arrest. That's right people, make sure you go along all peaceful and quiet like so you make the cops' jobs easier. I'm sure that worked well in Nazi Germany, too.

    If the rest of the students present had any balls they would have rushed the cops and given them a good beat down.

    Well, that actually makes me glad that Kerry didn't win. If he can't even stand up for someone in the same room is him, how could he stand up for the rights he would have been sworn to uphold.

    Not as good a tazing as that other college asshat who got it like four or five times though it's always entertaining to see those whiney bitches scream and beg for help before getting zapped.

    Was he arrested my police or just detained by campus security?

    Amen. I think the cops were totally out of line but when I hear the kid screaming "OOOOOOOW! OOOOOOW!" I just have to shake my head. Some people just have no pride. Try swearing at the bastards. Go McLovin on them, even!

    Does it matter? They were jack booted thugs either way.

    God, someone better pray it wasn't the cops, that will make them look bad.

    Let's be honest. Who hasn't felt the urge to tazer a college student?

    Sometimes you just have to fight against tyranny. You may be on the losing side, but that doesn't mean it isn't the right one.

    Give it time. It always starts like this.

    Yeah, I'd have more respect if he took a swing at them or something but going limp and yelling help! help!, total bitch move. :rofl:

    He did seem honestly surprised, which will probably help in the long run legally.

    The scary thing was the sheeplike look on the rest of the students...

    It depends on the students.


    For example, I'd rather do something else with these fine students:

    Par for the course. Most days I think we've lost the war when it comes to instilling in succeeding generations the principles on which this nation was founded and what they really mean.

    Fucking Idaho, and my son is having to learn to say the pledge in Spanish. I was tempted to head on down to the school and corner the principal on that one, until I realized it was for his Spanish class. Even so, the chipping away continues unabated.

    Let's just say I've seen that same look when I'm sorting cattle.

    I'd have been proud of her, even if she'd been arrested too.

    Wow, that must've been uncomfortable for Kerry. I bet he talked his beautician's ear off later that night while he was getting his pedicure and facial. :soma:

    As for college students being escorted out of places...why the hell do they always have to put on an obnoxious dog and pony show? Just leave for christ's sake. :jayzus:

    That's right, remember that Mewa thinks we should give up like good little sheep, obey that nice police officer tazing you, and give up your property at someone else's whim.

    He'd have made a good Torie.

    Wait, this was campus security, not actual cops?

    Yeah, I woulda resisted. I laugh at rent-a-cops. Not that lots of them couldn't stomp my ass, but at least it's not a fucking felonly to defend yourself from them. Better catch me with that tazer (taser?) the first time, and don't let me get ahold of that arm.

    I've been tazed before, one halloween we ran around tazing each other instead of throwing eggs, to many people down here shoot at you for that. And I've been detained and questioned and handcuffed on quite a few occasions. Being nice to the cops is always your best bet. I can't count how many times I've been stopped while carrying a little herb on me and have been let go with my weed just for simply being nice and not making any sudden jestures with my hands. But I'm not hitting a cop unless they find like a dead hooker in my trunk or something.

    I did sort of resist once with this asshole cop but not forcefully, that's just a quick way to a felony assault charge, I refused to answer his questions, I did have the right to remain silent after all. I just stood there with a dumb look on my face smiling at him and enjoying my high while he went all red in the face because I wouldn't open my mouth.
