A student at the University of Florida was trying to ask Sen. Kerry why he wasn't backing impeachment of the President, when, well, this happened. From the Miami Herald:
"He apparently asked several questions -- he went on for quite awhile -- then he was asked to stop," university spokesman Steve Orlando said. "He had used his allotted time. His microphone was cut off then he became upset."
While as many as four police officers tried to remove Meyer from the forum, he yelled for help and asked "What did I do?" Minutes after Meyer started speaking, he was Tasered.
The disturbing video is after the jump.
It's a whole lot worse than it sounds. The video shows one college student being held down by six officers. He can't really do anything besides beg not to be Tasered, and then they do it anyway. He was completely overpowered by the six cops, was not a threat to anyone, and he was still Tasered. You can hear him screaming in pain in the video.
Amnesty International has found 245 deaths by Taser since 2001. These aren't humane devices, and they aren't safe. They're tools to make the cops feel Big. I hope the school and Kerry's office choose to respond to this appropriately.
