Student shot repeatedly with taser by University of California Police officers
University police officers at UCLA tasered a student who was working at the Powell Library computer lab at 11:30pm because he didn't have an id card and he did not want an officer to physically handle him (grab his arm) as he left the building.
If a person is tasered he will not be able to stand up immediately after being shot. To shoot him again for "refusing to comply" strikes me as an application of excessive force.
One of the police officers threatened to taser bystanders when they him to stop tasering the student on the ground.
There is a Youtube video of this. I can't bring myself to watch it. I am already furious and I don't want to start crying.
What happened to the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave?
This is not right. It has to get fixed. As a nation we have imprisoned ourselves in our fear.
