What would be more upsetting to you?

Being tasered by uniformed thugs for exercising your right of free speech, or being surrounded by people who did absolutely nothing to help you?



It's appalling how a room full of people did nothing.

Sheep.

All sheep.

And that's why our country, and our world, is in the state it is today.

This video makes me so sad.

Update: Kerry condemns what happened. Sure. Retroactively. The kid was pathetically screaming "Help me! Help me!"and Kerry just droned on in the background.

I can't stand any of them.

Update 2: Here's an eyewitness account that basically said:
Excerpt: This wasn't some poor guy who was brutalized for trying to ask some tough questions. He's just an obnoxious guy who had a fit when there wasn't time for his questions and refused to be calm even when he was given the chance to speak. He was looking for trouble, and everyone applauded when he was forced to leave.
Yes. We must all be orderly and follow all of the rules. Because that's what THEY do (THEY meaning the ones in charge, the powers that be, the police, the corporations, etc.). THEY always follow the rules... their rules, but rules nonetheless. Heaven forbid someone should show a little justifiable anger and frustration. Being out of order means you're nuts, you're a menace and should be controlled.

Final Update: The mission is complete. The "don't taze me bro'" kid is now the bad guy. Well done, MSM, well done.

"had a fit when there wasn't time for his questions"

That's the latest spin. The original articles I read said his mic was cut off for 'obscenities' by the organizers.

And Kerry's statement: "I do not know what warnings or other exchanges transpired between the young man and the police prior to his barging to the front of the line"

I didn't see that in the video, did anyone else?

And the other latest distraction comes from the AP "A university student with a history of taping his own practical jokes"; WTF has that got to do with anything?

The point is not how he said it or why he said it, but that saying anything that wasn't "within the guidelines" got him arrested and tasered. It's a terrifying message.
