I doubt it. The university is paid for by the students. The students own that "private property".

How people can say the cops are not to blame is rediculous and is very telling of why this still happens in a "free" country.

He did nothing unlawfull until manhandled by the rent-a-pigs. I'm done calling them cops. Real cops would have known better.

Let anybody take us over and still living in the stone age ? Boy you sure are way years behind in history. Going back some 500 years, we kicked out the Turks, Napoleon, The Nazis, Nato and The British Forces Base and we are still a self Governing Country till this very day.

Your name calling was uneccessary by the way. It indicates you are intolerant of any outside critisism or inside for that matter too.

I repeat once again that I love Americans but not your present and illegal Government.

Enjoy your trip under G.W.B. while it lasts.

Since when have University Students lost their right to ask very valid questions to anyone ?

If you think my post was anti American then you got the wrong message buddy. I for one love American people and I even have family members living there.

It is the attitude of the American ' Government ' that is making me sick with it's lack of respect to your Constitution and other ' Huge Mistakes ' in some other parts of the World.

My message was intended to make some people realize what they are losing that's all.

If the American people accepted 2 rigged elections in a row then I am sorry to say that I cannot look upon America as the Land of The Free anymore period.

If you are happy with the situation then that's fine by me.






You have no idea about our constitution. When your country comes out of the stone age, then maybe we can talk.

Worry about your country. Maybe you guys can someday rule your own land, and not have anyone who wants it take it over.

Holy crap...

I'm sick of these anti-american a-holes and pot head hippies who think everything's a conspiracy and we should live in a state of complete chaos and insanity.

And you just showed your true colors.
Not even worth discussing this with someone who feels the need to degrade and insult in an attempt to promote fascism.
If anyone is truly Anti-American it is you, true Americans will fight for the American way, fight for our rights and continue to persue the American freedoms that so many others have given their life and limb for.

When YOU come out of the stone age then maybe we can talk.

Not to speak for "them" but that sounds exactly what they are saying in this thread and others. Crazy times we live in when people accept this kind of behavior as appropriate. Where would our country be if the colonists didn't stand up for their rights against the king? Maybe people need to read a history book?

So I have been "lurking" on these boards for the past few weeks more interested in the news one can find here that is not found through the mainstream media. This is by far the most disturbing thing I have seen, I do however feel like he was being quite loud and resisting, but on the other hand I would have been too, and at the very least I would have liked to known why I was being placed under arrest.

Beyond that though I would like to know if anyone can make out what Kerry said in response. I can here him say "hold on let me answer" and he keeps talking throughout. Does anyone have a transcript or can anyone understand what he is saying?

Giorgio, Just wanted to apologize. You made some good points there, and I'm afraid I sounded like an a-hole. Sorry.

I voted for that guy? I'm glad my vote got lost/stolen (N/M district 19). I wonder if he will ever answer the question? The campus cops messed up the kids nice shirt. The new thing about protesting is that you are only allowed to do it in approved porta-potties and nowhere else now.

Yes. Period. He was elected twice - despite obvious attempts by Gore to steal it the first time.

Election Stolen in my book.

Then 'your book' doesn't understand the electoral college or the reason that the founding fathers put it in action.


I understand quite well how the electoral college works and failed us in the 2000 election. Obviously you don't. You see, most people in America voted for Al Gore. Yet, the electors chose to vote for George Bush rather than the candidate choosen by the very population that they swore to represent.

System failed. Period.

It's not hard to understand. I hope the laymen's explanation with which I described it helps.

George Bush was elected president. But, not by the people of the country (for which Electoral College was originally designed), but by the Electoral College itself.

" degrade and insult in an attempt to promote fascism. You sure got your knickers in a twist ! I do not recall saying anything remotely in that context.

I am sure the readers of this forum are curious to know just how the American way of ' fighting it ' is going to happen in order to get your Freedom back
.

If you want to twist my words then be my guest. I am not going to waste any more of this Forum's space.

I hope that when we come out of the stone age and America reveals the truth about Aliens, then maybe, just maybe, we can have a chat. Not holding my breath though
.

Asta la vista baby.

No you can't. You can be detained until a police officer get there to arrest you, but you cannot be arrested by a private sector enforcement agency.

If this were the case, I'd just establish a corporation called Tyranny Security and go arrest The Executive Branch for jaywalking, lock them away in the deepest cave I could find and throw away the key.

I know this wasn't directed at me but, oh well.

I am a red blooded American. Live in Texas, raised in the country, Firefighter, come from a military family....I think what everyone is missing is that nothing else matters but what happened at the exact moment that the kid was tasered...At that EXACT moment did the police have the need to taser him? He was immobilized by six, count them, SIX officers. His arms were restrained, legs were restrained and his body was restrained. At that MOMENT what was he going to do? They had NO reason to taser him at that moment.

How can ANYONE say that he had it coming? What led up to that MOMENT has no bearing on what the cops did. " He set it up" , " He was loud" , " He went over is alloted time" , " He was confrontational"....NONE of those matter. None of that gives the police the right to taser someone that has already been Immobilized. Yelling does not mean you deserve to be tasered.

I don't understand how some of you say he had it coming. Hopefully, one day, I will see you get tasered and I will just say, " well, They shouldn't have been so loud and obnoxious. They deserved it."

I guess right and wrong don't matter anymore if someone had it coming to 'em....

i'm well aware of the type of people drawn to this forum, but i'm always amazed at the content of these discussions.

i guess i've been quite desensitized throughout my life (it's been quite a bit grittier than the average one, i promise). but i found the guy getting tasered hillarious! here he was with his elitist attitude and this plan to put john kerry on the spot... the authorities asked him to stop and he refused. they asked him a few more times and he refused. they cut his mic and he refused. they tried to haul him off and he refused. all while getting rowdier and escalating the entire situation.

the guy was being a dickhead the entire time and in my opinion he got what was coming to him. he even knew it was coming and had plenty of warnings.

Sorry Giorgio, I think there is some confusion, my post that you are referring to was in response to Electro38's insulting and degrading comments to your original post.
I was saying his post was insulting and degrading towards you and your country.
I have the greatest respect and appreciation for your post and hope you continue to post here.
Once again I apologize if you thought I was referring to you.

he was clearly resisting and being totally uncooperative. he was not completely restrained. right before getting tasered he made an attempt to get up.

another underlying story is how pathetic is it that 6 cops could not successfully restrain and detain one unruly kid...!

to me, looked like the big black cop could have just tucked him under one arm and walked him out of the building.

if you see me detained by six cops with a taser being poked in my chest, you are going to see me being fully cooperative!
