Oh cmon. First, the guy was naked in public which is against the law. Its not against the law to wear a cross. Second, the guy was not cooperating with the simple request to put his close on. He could have either been tazed or forced to the group or clubbed a couple of times. What does it really matter. If you dont want the police to knock you around then try to follow their instructions. If you were wronged you can sort it out in court. They are out there risking their lifes so they cant just talk real nice to everyone who is breaking the law and expect that anyone is going to follow their instructions. In a nutshell, that guy deserved to get tazed.
What would you have done if you were the police? Would you have blantantly not done your job to enforce the law?

I disagree about the freedom bit. Yes the human body is beautiful , everything is beautiful, but theres a time and place to show it off, and anywhere where children may be present is not that place.
ON the other hand I did not think that warranted a taser, those cops could have talked him into it. They did not have to treat him so inhumane and that crowd should have stepped in..
At what point do officers have the authority to taser?? When anyone doesn't go fast enough, takes to long, or argues... Does it never occur to these officers that they might just have to do their damn job?? Protect and serve right?

Aside from the worst case of micro-weiner I've ever seen, what was really disturbing about this video was the way they repeatedly used the taser. The cop was pressing it against his chest, right into his heart, and pulled the trigger several times. Not to mention against his head and neck. That is just wrong! What, were they trying to kill the guy because he was naked at an outdoor hippie festival? I can't believe it was legal for the cops to go that far - he wasn't a threat to anyone.

You dont see little tribal kids growing up to be perverts who spend 2 hours a day looking at internet porn now do you ? - Why ? - because nudity is NORMAL, we have created a fake world with fake people and fake laws.

Do they even have the right to grab him and force his clothes on him? Yes I know it's illegal to be naked in public, but it is a paganfest. Oh and to the poster that tried that lame attempt at a "But what about the children?" If you take your kids to paganfest chances are they know and have seen a naked body before. Like nudity is the worse thing you could see.
