Don't fuck with campus cops.

First there was that UCLA kid that got tasered for refusing to leave a campus library after hours after failing to provide identification.

Now there's the kid in Florida that got tasered at a speech given by John Kerry.

You know what I think? Good for the campus cops. Sure, it's nice and liberal-like to get your panties in a twist over shit like this, but face facts: in each of these cases the taserees were being disruptive in a public place and resisting arrest (to the extent that campus cops have the power to arrest).

In the UCLA library case, campus policy states that after a certain point in the evening, you need to be able to provide student identification or you have to leave. As an undergrad, I was denied entry to a campus library because I left my ID in my apartment, so you know what I did?
Went and fucking got it. If you're breaking the rules, you have to leave; if you refuse to leave, you face the consequences.

This kid in Florida was giving civil discourse the old up and under. Reports say that he took the microphone out of order, cut off another student attempting to ask a question, and by the look of the video, had no interest in actually getting an answer to his "questions". Running off at the mouth in a public place will likely get you escorted out. Refusing to leave and fighting against the "man" will likely get your ass tasered.

I laugh my ass off when the Florida kid got tasered. He kept going, "Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!" I lost my shit and could not stop watching that. Then, again I laughed out load when I went to see "Hostel 2".
