No doubt you wont see it on most mainstream broadcasters throughout the nation, most of them are biased.

That is horrible what they did to that guy, there is no excuse for that!

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Why should it be broadcast throughout the nation? I really don't think it rises to that level.

Maybe I'm confused, but he basically tried to fight the police officers after they tried to remove him for being disruptive right?

He has the right to freedom of speech! They should not have been trying to arrest him in the first place, its not as if he was doing any physical or verbal threats to Kerry!

I went to a John Kerry speech once and was wishing someone would give me a shot with a taser just to wake me up.

Most politicians (past and present) are boring, while others are too entertaining because of that arent taken seriously

Its really hard to find a politician who is entertaining but can still be taken seriously - Vote Rudy Guiliani/Newt Gingrich (or if your in New Zealand vote for the National Party, lead by the great John Key!)

Why do people continue to justify their or other's actions by using free speech? Free speech doesn't allow you to do whatever you want when you want and it certainly doesn't allow you to infringe on another person's right. The student had every right to get up there and ask a question, but he tried to be a smartass and was disruptive. The disruption he initally caused by being a smart ass infringed on the rights of those in attendance who came to hear John Kerry speak, not some college student who read one book and thinks he knows everything. Once he caused the disruption, the police had every right to ask him to step away from the mic or to leave the building. He didn't and paid the price.

He asked for four questions, so what at the last council meeting I got I asked for 7! And no I didnt get arrested, infact I swear the mayor winked at me.

Im all for tough crime, but dont these cops have any morals
(ooooo Im making an accusation, better not get arrested now)

Re: UF Student tasered at John Kerry Speech(Intense Stuff)

He was apparently alloted a certain amount of time to ask questions. There was a line of other people wanting to ask questions, and so he was asked to step aside once he was going over his allocated time. He got all up in arms and was then asked to leave, escorted by the police.
Instead of leaving, he started flailing all over the place to the point where the police were forced to arrest him. He was told to put his hand behind his back, and he wouldn't. Instead he continued shouting and screaming and trying to struggle to get free.
They tasered him because he was resisting arrest and they had tried for about a minute to handcuff him and their attempts proved futile while he was still struggling. It was his own fault, what an idiot.

He was pissed off that he couldnt ask more questions, and he wasnt a threat to anyone.

And FYI there was a (short) line of people wanting to ask questions after me too, and they I was about the fourth person to ask the questions. I should have been tasered

He was pissed off? Oh, well then that makes it O.K. Now, if he'd have been drunk too, then his actions would have been even more O.K.
