Unless any of you were there, I find it hard to believe you're all criticizing a single, clipped video.
From that video, I get a drastically different feeling, which says to how much credibility one can lend what was, at most, a two minute clip in its
The kid stands up in the middle of a Senator's speech -- Either as part of questioning, or to just get his question out.
Shortly into this, he begins asking conspiratorial questions, and is dragged away -- As he continues to scream. It's quite clear this is what he
expected for asking such inane, pointless things.
Now, you're all on a conspiracy site. You like conspiracies. You believe them.
However, the general public doesn't.
And when someone begins screaming like a girl, both questions, and 'Look! Police state!' comments as he is arrested, most people will be glad to see
him removed, and the room brought back to order.
Excessive force? Perhaps.
Most likely, they wanted him to stop screaming, and thrashing.
Most likely, they wanted him to stop moving.
I'll agree it was too much, but, the response, to arrest him, was justified.
Having watched the second video:
i. Opens with an 'impeach Bush' comment. Not too popular, but, what are you going to do.
ii. Continues with 'secret society' talk. This tends to lead someone to believe the person intends to disrupt something, as nearly all 'public
commentors' of conspiracy tend to be riled up, and wild. While Kerry may've not cared, it's not his job to keep things under control.
iii. The student clearly struggles. For nearly thirty, fourty seconds, the rent-a-cops are struggling to hold his arms down, while he's screaming.
It's obvious he expected the treatment, screaming, not asking, why he's being arrested. Giving 'conspiratorial reasons', etc.
Quite frankly, I think the cops simply had enough of him.
And while all of you continue to fawn over his behavior, or say, 'I would've busted the cops teeth out!', let's see how many of you tough guys
actually have the guts to go to a rally and do that.
It seems many of us have misconceptions about reality.
