Student Arrested, Tasered at Kerry Event

University of Florida Student Arrested, Tasered at Kerry Forum After Asking About Election

A University of Florida student was Tasered and arrested after trying to ask U.S. Senator John Kerry about the 2004 election and other subjects during a campus forum.

Videos of the incident posted on several Web sites show officers pulling Andrew Meyer, 21, away from the microphone after he asks Kerry about impeaching President Bush and whether he and Bush were both members of the secret society Skull and Bones at Yale University.

"He apparently asked several questions he went on for quite awhile then he was asked to stop," university spokesman Steve Orlando said. "He had used his allotted time. His microphone was cut off, then he became upset."

As two officers take Meyer by the arms, Kerry, D-Mass., is heard to say, "That's alright, let me answer his question." Audience members applaud, and Meyer struggles to escape for several seconds as up to four officers try to remove him from the room.

Meyer screams for help and asks "What did I do?" as he tries to break away from officers. He is forced to the ground and officers order him to stop resisting. Meyer says he will walk out if the officers let him go.

As Kerry tells the audience he will answer the student's "very important question," Meyer struggles on the ground and yells at the officers to release him, crying out, "Don't Tase me, bro," just before he is Tasered. He is then led from the room, screaming, "What did I do?"

Meyer was charged with resisting an officer and disturbing the peace, according to Alachua County jail records. No bond had been set. Meyer was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning, a jail official said.

It was not known if Meyer had an attorney.

Orlando said university police would conduct an internal investigation.

"The police department does have a standard procedure for when they use force, including when they use a Taser," Orlando said. "That is what the internal investigation would address whether the proper procedures were followed, whether the officers acted appropriately."

Watch this and just see if it doesn’t get you out of your chair to the phone.

Watch the crowd cheer for the cops, watch the MSNBC goons' sadism as they support tasering a student and call it the most exciting moment ever at a John Kerry speech.

and watched this brutality and whimpered a little about how everyone should calm down. He should have ordered those cops to let a citizen ask a senator a question. That he did not speaks volumes (at least to anyone who didn't learn a long time ago who Kerry was).

Obedience is exemplified by Kerry.

The Good(?) Senator does nothing.
The sheeple in attendance look to him for guidance.

Nothing to see here, move along people...

Notice how Kerry even attempted to make a joke out of the situation.

To see a crowd of college students laugh and cheer as one of their own classmates is Tazered is ugly.

To hear a group of so-called "TV journalists" gloat in sadistic glee over it (and even make jokes about it) is even uglier.

America hit its moral rock bottom yesterday, and thanks to the Internet, people around the world can see just how deep the totalitarian police-state has ingrained itself within the American psyche, and judging by the reaction of the students and the MSNBC pundits to the brutal squelching of someone's right to speak freely, a totalitarian police-state is now considered to be a part of "normal American life".

Welcome to America, the Sociopathic ... a nation of sociopaths ruled by sociopaths.

F*** the police! This has become such a normal occurrence that the people in the crowd barely stirred...

Can anyone say "Kent State shootings"?

The rogue authorities may not quite be there ... yet ... but they're clearly walking the same path.

(Edit -- had a couple more hours to mull it over.)

"Kent State" ... "Kerry State" ... not quite, but almost has a ring to it. (That'll probably be next week, the way things are going.)

I have to seriously question Kerry's leadership ability, over this. If he is claiming on the one hand to be a decorated soldier, used to combat ... couldn't he (A) see the cop's excessive force coming? and (B) couldn't he have simply said "no" or "stop" in a firm, commanding enough voice, that the cops actually listened to him? Cripes a'mighty: if ya can't command five CAMPUS cops ... wow! Dog owners have better control!? And he wants to run the (used to sorta be) Free World? Why? How!? Who'd listen!?

More than ever, I want "None of the Above" on every ballot, where a person is being chosen for some job or other. And if "NotA" wins by a substantial enough margin, those people running against No One and losing, should not be allowed to run for that office, ever again. I'm sick of awful choices! None of the Above would win by a landslide!!! (Getting way too hard to pinpoint who's Least Worst rich white face.)

After seeing this incident's video, several times, I have to think that it would not have made any difference if Kerry was President. Given the betrayal of the entire Democratic Party, time and time again on the occupation of Iraq, since they gained power under a year ago ... I now believe we would have had the exact same messes. I'm more glad than ever that I de-registered as a Democrat; and went indy.

though the son of a bitch 'won' the 2004 election and got ripped off, I'm not too sure that the nation wouldn't be in Iraq with this gutless fuck as president.

John Kerry, standing and watching a student get tasered is a very crystal clear look at the inside of you. you're gutless, and you have no soul.

you never deserved to be president, it was always Al Gore's presidency you were trying to take away from the dictator n thief, not your own.

Bless this college kid's heart, he never intended to get arrested but his one arrest has made more news around the world than all the Sept 15th arrests, even the ones of vets of the war! This accidental hero is drawing the attention of commentators from around the world on forums ... international Paul Reveres on youtube are warning Americans that our nation has lost its liberties and for us to wakeup, fast!

Amendment VIII
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

“Citizens may resist unlawful arrest to the point of taking an arresting
officer's life if necessary.” Plummer v. State, 136 Ind. 306. This
premise was upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States in the
case: John Bad Elk v. U.S., 177 U.S. 529. The Court stated: “Where the
officer is killed in the course of the disorder which naturally
accompanies an attempted arrest that is resisted, the law looks with
very different eyes upon the transaction, when the officer had the right
to make the arrest, from what it does if the officer had no right. What
may be murder in the first case might be nothing more than manslaughter
in the other, or the facts might show that no offense had been

“An arrest made with a defective warrant, or one issued without
affidavit, or one that fails to allege a crime is within jurisdiction,
and one who is being arrested, may resist arrest and break away. lf the
arresting officer is killed by one who is so resisting, the killing will
be no more than an involuntary manslaughter.” Housh v. People, 75 111.
491; reaffirmed and quoted in State v. Leach, 7 Conn. 452; State v.
Gleason, 32 Kan. 245; Ballard v. State, 43 Ohio 349; State v Rousseau,
241 P. 2d 447; State v. Spaulding, 34 Minn. 3621.

“When a person, being without fault, is in a place where he has a right
to be, is violently assaulted, he may, without retreating, repel by
force, and if, in the reasonable exercise of his right of self defense,
his assailant is killed, he is justified.” Runyan v. State, 57 Ind. 80;
Miller v. State, 74 Ind. 1.

“These principles apply as well to an officer attempting to make an
arrest, who abuses his authority and transcends the bounds thereof by
the use of unnecessary force and violence, as they do to a private
individual who unlawfully uses such force and violence.” Jones v. State,
26 Tex. App. I; Beaverts v. State, 4 Tex. App. 1 75; Skidmore v. State,
43 Tex. 93, 903.

“An illegal arrest is an assault and battery. The person so attempted to
be restrained of his liberty has the same right to use force in
defending himself as he would in repelling any other assault and
battery.” (State v. Robinson, 145 ME. 77, 72 ATL. 260).

“Each person has the right to resist an unlawful arrest. In such a case,
the person attempting the arrest stands in the position of a wrongdoer
and may be resisted by the use of force, as in self- defense.” (State v.
Mobley, 240 N.C. 476, 83 S.E. 2d 100).

“One may come to the aid of another being unlawfully arrested, just as
he may where one is being assaulted, molested, raped or kidnapped. Thus
it is not an offense to liberate one from the unlawful custody of an
officer, even though he may have submitted to such custody, without
resistance.” (Adams v. State, 121 Ga. 16, 48 S.E. 910).

“Story affirmed the right of self-defense by persons held illegally. In
his own writings, he had admitted that ‘a situation could arise in which
the checks-and-balances principle ceased to work and the various
branches of government concurred in a gross usurpation.’ There would be
no usual remedy by changing the law or passing an amendment to the
Constitution, should the oppressed party be a minority. Story concluded,
‘If there be any remedy at all ... it is a remedy never provided for by
human institutions.’ That was the ‘ultimate right of all human beings in
extreme cases to resist oppression, and to apply force against ruinous
injustice.’” (From Mutiny on the Amistad by Howard Jones, Oxford
University Press, 1987, an account of the reading of the decision in the
case by Justice Joseph Story of the Supreme Court.

As for grounds for arrest: “The carrying of arms in a quiet, peaceable,
and orderly manner, concealed on or about the person, is not a breach of
the peace. Nor does such an act of itself, lead to a breach of the
peace.” (Wharton’s Criminal and Civil Procedure, 12th Ed., Vol.2: Judy
v. Lashley, 5 W. Va. 628, 41 S.E. 197)

this was an excellent post. It's good to know that one has the right to intervene as a bystander if witness to an unlawful arrest such as this was. Watching the video it's hard to believe how many people stood by while this obviously harmless person asked some questions. He was polite and his agitation was youthful enthusiasm for being an active member of a democracy.

I would also like to support the NONE OF THE ABOVE poster. I am ashamed I voted for Kerry. I would like to get my vote back and give it to my sheepdog who protects me if i am under threat.

"Stun gun used during Kerry debate

*University of Florida police used a stun gun on a student taking part in a
forum with former presidential candidate John Kerry.*

Andrew Meyer was questioning Senator Kerry on why he did not contest the
results of the 2004 election.

University officials said he exceeded his allotted time and became
disruptive after his microphone was cut off.

Video footage shows police pulling Mr Meyer from the audience and pinning
him to the ground before stunning him.

The 21-year-old student can be heard screaming for help as the stun gun is

Mr Meyer was arrested and charged with resisting an officer with violence
and disturbing the peace, reports local newspaper the Gainesville Sun.

After spending the night in Alachua County jail, he was released on Tuesday
morning, the Gainesville Sun reports.

A spokesman for the university, Steve Orlando, said campus police would
conduct an internal investigation into whether the weapon had been used
appropriately. "

Now if only the MSM would do their job (reporting) more
people would be informed about things like this. Great


Were American cops bullies as children? Or is police brutality getting a free pass from this bully Bushit neocon Administration?

Now that regular American cops got this tasering/beating rep against regular non-felonious Americans, imagine how Iraqis feel about civilians being killed by Blackwater rent-a-cop.

Gd piece of paper, my ass, our ancestors fought for our Constitution and we Americans better take it back, NOW!
