Ok, first off, I can't see anything that he did legally wrong UNTIL he resisted arrest, which is what he's being charged with. Last time I checked, going over the time limit at a meeting wasn't a crime. According to this (http://www.newsvine.com/_news/2007/09/17/968858-student-arrested-tasered-at-kerry-event) article, they're pulling him away because he wouldn't give up his spot on the floor. But at the same time, Kerry say's he's willing to answer his question. I don't know about you, but if a US Senator say's he's going to answer the boy's question, common sense says to leave him alone and listen to what the man has to say.

damn it, i thought i quelled this in ST:P...

-he has his moment to shine ok
-he is asked to wrap it up and/or stand down at which time Kerry agrees to answer his question
-he freaks out i would to if i was gonna get "escorted" out
-he is asked to leave while officers are trying to keep his arms at his sides
-he gets even more flustered, and has to have police escort him out they've been at his sides practically the whole time!
-he begins trying to escape, gets loud, begins swearing at and pushing them he tells them he'll go quietly if they let go of him
-police threaten to taze him AFTER he's dogpiled on the ground already...
-he didnt stop what's he going to do, throw 5-6 bodies off his back and run off???
-kid was tazed


I think the cops could have saved a lot of trouble by letting him stand there and listen to Kerry's question.

-he freaks out i would to if i was gonna get "escorted" outbeing escorted wasnt even an issue at the time
-he is asked to leave while officers are trying to keep his arms at his sidesyou mean the officers standing behind him with their arms crossed, right?
-he gets even more flustered, and has to have police escort him out they've been at his sides practically the whole time!no they havent
-he begins trying to escape, gets loud, begins swearing at and pushing them he tells them he'll go quietly if they let go of himwould you give him a second chance? i know i wouldnt
-police threaten to taze him AFTER he's dogpiled on the ground...the cops think "i dont want to wrestle this kid, and i have a handy tool on my belt for situations exactly like this!"
-he didnt stop what's he going to do, throw 5-6 bodies off his back and run off???no, that would be the worst possible choice. he is supposed to calmly lay there and let the cops pick him up and carry hime away.
-kid was tazed

I think the police were totally in the right there. The news has a tendency to sensationalize things and always put the police in the wrong. Listen to the questions the kid is asking. He is asking about secret societies and stuff like like. Sounds like a friend of mine who is a Paranoid Schizophrenic. Then 2 officers try to escort him out, which by the reaction of the audience was warranted. The audience clapped when the officers try to escort him out, so to me it sounds like there is more that we didn't get to see. While the officers try to escort him out, he tries to get away and starts fighting with them. One thing I have learned is no matter what, you never, ever fight with the police regardless of whether you think you are right or wrong. It then went to the point where 5-6 police officers could not subdue him so they had to taze him. I don't think the police are at fault at all here, I think they did exactly what they should have done.

I'm with marv, the kid deserved it. He flipped out, the cops could definitely make a case that he exhibited signs of out lash and he was suppressed before he took it too far.

No one's brought up that trying to get a national politician to answer a question would make anyone flip out. :D

Regardless, the police responded with the appropriate level of force and only escalated when the kid forced them to.

Hes not very bright, for one thing. Police had the right, since he did resist them.

he did resist arrest. but i dont get why they were gonna escort him out in the first place. i think that they did respond with appropriate force. he is very........ not smart. if you are being "escorted out" you do not resist them.

I saw more of the video this morning and I think they should have tazed him more now or at least turned up the voltage. John Kerry spoke for 2 hours to this group and when he was done he allowed the audience to come up and ask questions. The kid went up and asked a question, Kerry answered, he asked another question. I'm not sure of the exact sequence but some point he was told that he had his turn he needed to sit down and allow other audience members to ask a question. He yelled at them, told them that Kerry got to talk for 2 hours, he would talk as much time as he wanted. He continued asking questions, they continued to ask him to sit down. Finally the turned off his microphone. He yelled at them some more then continued to ask questions. It was at this point where police tried to escort him out of the building. So, did he deserve it? Hell yeah.

They had a story on this on our local news. It said that two of the officers involved were placed on administrative leave pending an investigation of the incident. UNBELIEVABLE. :angry:

Here is that (short) story if anyone is interested...

You should remove the quote text tater... i hotlinked thinking it was hosted elsewhere but when i realized that it was hosted on 4chan i made a mad dash to change the host location... after they realized it's being accessed by hotlinks it could be replaced with anything, and i wouldn't test 4chan.
