I've seen a few of the videos and the description seems pretty accurate to me. The guy disrupted an event and he got removed. He was clearly resisting, so he got what he deserved.

He got what he deserved. Not to mention a classic sound bite, "don't taze me bro!", ranking right up there with Howard Dean's famous "screech " after finishing 3rd in the Iowa Primary


He was just there for the cameras. After he was led outside he was quiet. Then he saw the reporters with cameras, he started struggling and yelling again. What a tool.

He got what he deserved. He made his point and should of either sat down or left and let Kerry either anwer or ignore him. But instead he resistedwhat would of been him escorted outside and made it into a struggle with multiple police that lead to him being arrested.

He's his own tool.

I can't believe your responses...so he asked some difficult questions, and he may have been grandstanding, but that doesn't justify unlawful handling and he wasn't told why he was manhandled...just taken to task and made an example of so the rest of the sheeple know what will happen if they don't toe the party line....
be afraid, be very afraid

First, the "don't taze me bro" guy was being obnoxious, but you should not get arrested and tazed for being obnoxious. He was not going to "start a riot" as the police woman who arrested him claimed.

The organizers of the event should have
1. asked the guy to sit down.
2. allowed Kerry to answer his questions or refuse to answer his questions
3. after Kerry spoke, asked the guy to be quiet so someone else could speak.
Instead, the police pounced on the guy because he spoke too long.

Second, we should not use law enforcement to insure that political figures are handled with kit gloves at political debates. Political figures should be heckled and should be forced to deal with hecklers on the campaign stump. Heckling would put political figures on their toes and force them to put forth well reasoned positions If Bush had to face hecklers every time he trotted out his soundbites on terrorism, our country and world would be in a far better place.

The conditioning that is happening in our society is shining bright in this thread. The police can do no wrong, and how dare you question there actions, or there motives.

Why would the cops attempt to grab some one speaking in a open forum for speaking too long, was this there job? No it wasn't They took it upon themselves to shut this guy up, and they were quite effective at it.
