Unnecessary Tasering.

I discovered this article over at CNN, and now I feel like puking. This student, Andrew Meyer, asked a long and heated question to John Kerry at a forum, and got upset when the microphone was taken away from him. Then, according to the article:

"Meyer screams for help and asks 'What did I do?' as he tries to break away from officers. He is forced to the ground and officers order him to stop resisting. Meyer says he will walk out if the officers let him go.

"As Kerry tells the audience he will answer the student's 'very important question,' Meyer struggles on the ground and yells at the officers to release him, crying out, 'Don't Tase me, bro,' just before he is Tasered. He is then led from the room, screaming, 'What did I do?'"

Watch the video below. Oh, my God.


  1. Disturbing is exactly the right word.

  2. I saw this on TV this morning, and it made me more convinced that we're heading back to the dark ages. Ugh. Canada anyone?

  3. I read an article about this guy (the tasered one) and how he might have "staged" this. Apparently he was lighthearted and happy-go-lucky as soon as the cameras were off of him, and he has several similiar UTube video stunts of himself...

    Not sure what to believe...
