invisible | College Student Gets 'Tasered' - Posted on 2006-11-17 22:34:29

  UCLA cops tasered a student who refused to show ID in Powell Library. They threatened nearby students with tasering if they interfered. A student captured video of the assault with a cameraphone.  The CSOs left, returning minutes later, and police officers arrived to escort the student out. By this time the student had begun to walk toward the door with his backpack when an officer approached him and grabbed his arm, at which point the student told the officer to let him go. A second officer then approached the student as well.

  The student began to yell "get off me," repeating himself several times.

  It was at this point that the officers shot the student with a Taser for the first time, causing him to fall to the floor and cry out in pain. The student also told the officers he had a medical condition...

  Laila Gordy, a fourth-year economics student who was present in the library during the incident, said police officers threatened to shoot her with a Taser when she asked an officer for his name and his badge number.

  Tasering someone to the floor, then telling them to get up or be 'tased' again is, to me, rediculous. And I don't know why they felt they had to use a taser gun. Surely there are other ways to get things done.
  I think that policemen get nervous, and panic, in situations such as this. So they go right for what they believe to be a sure way to make someone behave the way they think they should. Though how anyone can do anything after being stunned to the ground is beyond me.

  For a better feel of what happened, read this article from the Daily Bruin [UCLA's student newspaper].


  What do you think about this?

my friend that goes there told me about that! that's crazy.

It's pretty bad how many times they tasered the guy, but he was saying some.. not so nice things.

I heard this on the radio last night. A person called in and said the kid was already leaving the library when he got tazed. I'm trying to watch it now.. but it's taking so long to load. It looks entertaining so far.

How can they do something like that? I don't think they were panicing, there was no reason to. *shakes head*

Here's a followup article:

Apparently, the officer shot a homeless guy and chocked a frat guy w/ his stick before.
