    Bill O'Reilly is selling "Don't Taze Me Bro!" bumper stickers, which I think is hilarious! LOL

    He was probably just trying to get on youtube like that guy who drove around baiting cops with the camera in his car.

    I'm not convinced this guy was intentionally disruptive, but their are some reports that say that he already had a reputation around campus for being a troublemaker. I don't think the cops should have started grabbing him when they did - particularly because Kerry, the person everyone was there to see, was asking the cops to stop and allow him to answer the kid's question. But the way he was resisting arrest like that, he's lucky to have only been tasered. If cops ask you to stop what you're doing and cooperate, it's usually a good idea to do so, provided it doesn't put you in harm's way. This guy was in an auditorium full of witnesses and recording devices; I can't see any good reason for him to have behaved that way.

    Force, brutality (though like stated getting tazerd than getting hit with a nite stick or something) is the reason we cnat find ANY thing out about what goes on in our government any more. Cant even ask a question with out getting a slap on the hand.

    being a person whos been tazed by a personal device on a bet, i can tell you 2 things about it- it is intensely painful, and would any battle pretty quickly.

    what bugs me here is how people jump right onto excessive force and "brutality". yeah, they probably didn't need to taze the guy, but i can guarantee you that he felt good as new 30 seconds after the tazering was done. thats the beauty of tazering, you recover nearly instantaneously. the thought of being shocked with 10k volts seems daunting but if it were me, i'd take the tazer any day over pepper spray, night sticks, rubber bullets, etc.

    i'm not really a huge police supporter, but the guy should have known to settle down when the police stepped in. first sign to settle down? being carried out by an officer. second sign? being restrained by 2 officers. 3rd sign? 4 officers pinning you to the ground. i mean really, did he think they were just going to be like "oh hey guys maybe he has a point... lets just let him go"
    if i were ruler of the world, anyone who defined a nepenthene as a "companion plant" to orchids would be fired from a cannon atop mt. kinabalu.

    As someone who's been in the clutches of "the man" before I can say I don't like the idea of cops using tasers at all. They say they're non lethal but they have been used to kill ("subdue" the cops say). They are especilly dangerous t persons with heart problems. I recall one news article where cops held a guy down by his arms and legs and tasered him repeatedly in the heart. That man is now off singing with the angels. The cops are still eating sunday dinner with their ugly little families. Give me a good ol' nightstick under the throat and repeated macings by different cops after being put in the squad car at an Earth Day rally anytime - I can live through that (and I did)!

    As far as this guy goes, not sure what he was getting at as I can't make out his question on the news clip. Was he just some pro-bush nut rallying against the non-existng Kerry 08 campaign or...? Who decided he should be taken down if Kerry was gonna answer his question? The college or the pigs?
