Florida Student Tasered at Kerry Forum
This poor college student begs cops not to Taser him moments before they shock the hell out of him.
Whoa. What to say about this video? One minute a University of Florida student is asking Sen. John Kerry about the 2000 election, impeachment and his membership in Skull and Bones, the Yale secret society that counts George W. Bush as a member. And the next Florida police are handcuffing and Tasering the young man.
A few questions:
1) Did this actually happen in the United States of America? 2) How is it that 98 percent of the audience sat in silence? 3) Can you believe that Kerry just kept on answering the question as if everything were normal? 4) What would have happened if the Senator stood up and told the cops to stop instead of offering weak protestation?
