Freedom

Watch this video:

This University of Florida student got tasered for speaking his mind. He was asking John Kerry about voter suppression during the 2004 Election when the cops pulled him off the microphone and arrested him.

If you listen closely you can here John Kerry answering the question as the cops handcuff and tase him into submission.

I'd hate to see what they do at Republican events.

Edit:

His name is Andrew Meyer.

Check out his website at www.theandrewmeyer.com.

Here is a link to the police report. It doesn't really describe what I saw in the video.

It sounds like he wanted to catch John Kerry on tape talking about Skull & Bones. I think that plan backfired when his ass got tasered.

Wow! That was insane. Freedom of speech? lol...Who knows the outcome of this event? Did the po'po' get in trouble for their unnecessary acts of violence? Did JK make any kind of statement to the media regarding this incident? Just curious...

That was brutal.

I love the power of the media and whoever filmed this event did a real service. I, too, wonder what happened, and why John Kerry didn't take control of the situation, allow the guy to ask his questions, tell the tech to turn the mike back on, tell the police to back off.

If it happened at a republican event, it would be all over the news, and these questions would be screamed over the air, because of the unbiased media....

Ah yes, the Liberal Media. You are right. CNN shows the viewpoints from the right....to the far right.

FOX News shows the viewpoints from the far right....the the extreme right.

As the US becomes more paranoid about it's security, more of this is bound to happen.

Even now they are scared of three year olds. Try taking a kid to the airport to see an airplane and see what happens.

The terrorists aren't winning...they have already won.

This sounds like fodder for Sour Grapes. (:-))

how come nobody comments on the blatant black on white abuse here? it's obviously a case of racism! mr. bush doesn't care about white people!











laughing to myself...











but seriously, i'm glad i wasn't a college student in attendance because i would have jumped in and helped the guy.

aw, maybe not.

i probably would have acted like the rest of the lambs in there. watching the video today from different angles (check them all out to get the full picture) really fired me up.

i can't believe it!

i'm sure that it's more of an indictment on the local campus police than the state of america, but i don't think it's too far fetched to believe it could happen anywhere else.

i'd still like kerry to answer the skull and bones question. i never heard about it before this. a few searches on the internet later; i want to hear his answer.

It's Florida...they don't do anything to Republicans. (except help them win elections)

Come to think about it though... I don't know how many hearings I've sat through at the Legislature, where a particular congressman will go on and on and on.

Wouldn't it be cool if the Sergeant-at-Arms could just walk up and taser them? >:)

That would help ensure they got right down to business.

...unless they are having hot gay sex with young congressional pages. They do something to those guys.

That made me lol

Maybe we could give Harry a taser for when he does interviews with stupid people. You saying something BS, you get tasered.

bradinthesand said...

can he taser himself?

bradinthesand said...

oh, and freedom isn't free. it costs a buck o'five.

The Saipan Blogger アンジェロ・ビラゴメズ said...

That's funny, Brad. Maybe the listeners could call a special phone number and Harry would get a slight shock every time it rang?

bradinthesand said...

yeah, they could call lewie and ask him to send a volt jolt! sorry harry, all in good fun.

Jeff said...

That is one of the most obscene things I've ever seen? If those people are still police in the morning, the country is fucked.

Jeff said...

And the coverage is just as bad, playing up the aspect of he plays jokes as if that is relevant to what happened. They'd have sent him to Guantanamo if it were a Republican event.
