I went to UCLA. I guess that's not really important but we should be careful not to weave our own stories and overreact. From my readings across the internet a few thoughts arise which should be considered -<br><br>1. I don't feel it's unreasonable for a CSO to request ID on a campus library, considering the time of night it was and potential threats they were trying to address with this policy. If he refuses to leave without providing ID, what else can law enforcement do beside force the guy out?<br><br>2. the taser was set on a low mode ("drive stun") which administers the shock locally. I don't know exactly what that means, but I think the important thing (along John's insight) is it was the least-aggressive option they had.<br><br>3. the guy who got tasered seemed to be picking a fight. i don't believe he was incapacitated and he actually did refuse to get up and leave. what else were the cops supposed to do?<br><br>I'm not saying all the other brutality incidents are overplayed. I'm only talking about this one.<br><br>--<br>http://www.jackthevain.com/
Humm<br>This article does not seem to allow a copy and paste ?<br><br>Anyway read the section on "unlawful combatants" which the terrorist and insurgents fit in this category . There seems to be no mention on how to deal with this legally so therefore they were treated as "POWs" which in this case there is no trial for POWs , simply if you have a gun in your hand and are shooting back , you are a combatant .<br><br>The complexity that they "terrorist / insurgent" are NOT a lawful entity adds to their delay for a fair trail by military court .<br><br>IMO<br><br>

You missed the point: They can declare anyone they choose to be an "unlawful combatant." If "they" don't like your religion, politics, or looks, they could, under this "law," declare you an unlawful combatant.<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>If he refuses to leave without providing ID, what else can law enforcement do beside force the guy out?<p><hr></blockquote><p>Where did you hear he was refusing to leave? He was, in fact, walking out when they grabbed him by the arm. There was no need to grab him by the arm and when he let them know that... they tased him.<br><br>Once you've been tased, you can't stand up under your own power... which is exactly what they kept demanding he do. Tasing him repeatedly making it even more impossible for him to comply with their "stand up" order.<br><br>At one point in the clip I saw, they said "stand up... that's all you have to do" which was asking him to do the impossible!<br><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Seemed to be picking a fight<p><hr></blockquote><p>I heard him begging them to stop and screaming from the pain. <br><br>
