UCLA Police taser man for no ID in random search

UPDATE, Nov 18, 9:25am: LA Times article today.

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA Police, reportedly conducting a random search at a computer lab, repeatedly gave severe taser electrical shocks to a student for several minutes. The student apparently either didn't have, or wouldn't show ID during the random search and questioning.

Dozens of students were witnesses.

There is no law that I am aware of that says you must show ID for police, especially when you are not committing a crime.

Read the story and watch the disturbing video. Life in post-9/11 Bush USA. Tasers have been linked to many deaths.

The abused student plans to sue.

This has got to stop. We must defend the Bill of Rights.

Pelosi and the dems should repeal the Patriot Act in their first 100 hours.

This was pretty unbelievable. The students crowding around the police and the student being tasered looked ready to intervene.

That situation was moments away from chaos.

We can only hope.

Today it was announced that Pelosi put the kibosh on the progressives' move to impeach Bush. Ah, spineless liberals. You gotta love them.
