You do realize that the cop who tasered the student is black, don't you?

hi schraf,

please see my apology a few posts back; I wasn't thinking very clearly on that da and said some silly things. I do however still hold that the response of the surrounding students was less than effective - perhaps I'll post a reprise of my points when in a mood of greater clarity. But for the time being you can safely ignore those posts.

Cheers

Mick

Update for 2017
Restrained teen tasered "four times totaling approximately fifty seconds on his stomach and legs."

Happened in Tennessee, he's suing, video in the link.

Sheriff writes:

'I have placed the employees involved on administrative leave while the investigation is conducted. We will work closely and cooperatively with the TBI and District Attorney's Office to ensure all facts are provided and all angles of this incident are thoroughly investigated.'

Video of them literally torturing a person restrained to a chair, why do they need to wait to sack them exactly?

They need time to figure out why he actually deserved it.

Mind you...

Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?
