University Student Tazed for Asking a Question

This is really disgusting.  A University of Florida student attempted to ask Senator John Kerry a few questions about his concession of the 2004 election and also about impeaching the Bush White House before they decided to attack Iran.  These seem like fair questions.

But not, apparently, to Florida State Police, who in a clear act of censorship, removed the student from the podium, attempted to handcuff him, and when he did not respond, tazered him.  Crooks and Liars picks up the story with the highly-circulated YouTube.com video here:

Crooks and Liars » University Of Florida Student Arrested, Tasered During Kerry Speech

U.S. Sen. John Kerry’s speech at the University of Florida came to a dramatic close Monday, shortly after a vocal audience member was hauled off by police and shot with a Taser gun. The audience member was preliminarily identified by UF officials as Andrew Meyer, a UF student in the College of Journalism and Communications.

And just in case you were afraid the mainstream media would cover this objectively, breath a sigh of relief:

Political Radar: Kerry Condemns Heckler Arrest

Videos show Meyer being pulled away from the microphone after as he sought to ask Kerry, D-Mass., a rambling series of questions that touch on allegations of voting improprieties in the 2004 election, possible impeachment of President Bush, Iran, and Kerry’s membership in Yale’s secret Skull and Bones society.

Watch the video. Does this man really seem to be “rambling” to you?  He doesn’t to me.  He sounds like a man who wants to get his point across before he’s taken away in handcuffs by the Florida State goon squad.  John Kerry could also have done a lot more to defend a fellow activist than just trying to droll on like nothing happened.  You can hear him doing just that in the background as the student repeatedly asks why he is being arrested and receives no answer.

What a country we’ve become.  This man John Kerry is a leader?

Hi Thomas and all,

There have been some pivotal insights into the true nature of the Bush/Cheney crew, it’s cohorts, and their long-term deceptions in recent days. Keep digging for the truth, much is purposely buried and hidden behind apparently obvious “facts” and traditions.

Why use the number 36, in Thursday the 13th’s speech?

Want to know the true significance of the number 36 in Bush’s speech? There obviously are not 36 countries fighting in “Babble on.” So why did our Bonesman President use it in his speech Thursday the 13th?

Discerning the truth about the USA

Peace…

it’s disgusting what the united states of america has become, not only have the politicians succeeded in undermining the constitution of america, but we as the people have allowed them to strip us of all our rights, from recently with Don Imus, to now with andrew meyer’s being forcefully and then aggressively tazere’d after he repeatedly begged them to not taze him. This video does bring to light the police’s rather itchy trigger tazer finger. hell in escambia county jail system in the past year alone they have tazed and killed 3 handicapped people, one of them whom was already strapped to a chair in order to restrain him, and another they threw him in the shower then proceeded to taze him. the filth we have become is disgusting and it’s time we as the people begin to follow with the rights as given to us by the founding fathers and begin to tear down and rebuild the filth we have become. let the flaming of the blind being.

I seen the video, and it was completely uncalled for, for the officers to arrest and tazer the guy. All he did was ask a question. I hope the officers that did that get/got their just desserts.
