<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> Once you've been tased, you can't stand up under your own power<p><hr></blockquote><p><br>Yeah.. this is one of the points that many people seem to point out. I did read explanations where they say a taser shot will make you lose entire muscle controle for up to 15 minutes.<br><br>But that's why I point out that the taser was set to stun. I read an explanation that says in that setting the shock is "local" (which I assume means it doesn't take your body control out). I have also read several accounts from people who say that they've been tasered and though it's painful, the effects recede immediately.<br><br>As for the picking a fight thing, that's just a guess I'm reading into (without any real basis) based on discussion threads that say this guy was always picking fights with any "institution" - the real jerk type of liberal. But that's second hand reading.<br><br>I guess the things I point out aren't really important, though. There's no doubt the guy gave trouble. Not to do the childish "he started it" thing, but I just want to not downplay the fact that he had faults in the matter too. It's not like the campus police came and tasered a random guy just to be jerks.<br><br>--<br>http://www.jackthevain.com/
Not everyone is programmed to behave like good little sheeple.<br><br>"Random" seems to be the root of the problem. I read some of the <br>background from the link, and the "jerk" was actually objecting to <br>being "randomly" selected to be "carded" out of an entire room of <br>"white students" to which he vociferously objected.<br><br>"Minorities" get touchy about being racially profiled. Go figure. <br><br>
i think his point is that perhaps there were many people around him in the library and they appeared to target him and only ask him for his I.D. so, in that sense, he was targeted. but the student was a jerk during the ordea, no doubt.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
<br>Of course... that was blatenly apparent as soon<br> as he MADE IT A POINT to Start SCREAMING; <br><h1>"HERE'S YOUR HOMELAND SECURITY!!!!!!"</h1><br>He wanted to escalate the confrontation to create<br>a very public spectacle to suit whatever purpose<br>he had in mind, and he succeeded.<br><br>
