LMAO... He was a douchebag. Should he have been tazed for being a douche? No. But if you're resisting arrest, causing a disturbance, and then trying to flee, (all of that while in the midst of a US Senator)... don't be surprised if something like that happens.

I didn't see much, "trying to flee". I mean at one point he even stops and raises his arms, and asks "what are you doing"...

No fleeing, not even much resisting arrest...

frankly i think it's official... america has lost their mind.

i'm watching MS-NBC... lead story was on how OJ is doing in jail, followed up with a story on isiah thomas saying it's okay for black guys to call black women bitches, where as it's not okay for white guys to do it... then there was a story on lettuce making you poop from e-coli, followed by a video of pluto chasing a kid in disney world, then a commercial, and then they discussed the kid getting arrested & tasered for asking a question after the break, and the entire discussion was on wether or not he should have been tasered, one of the responses from the guest was "well he was kinda tall."

are we completely missing the point that SOMEONE WAS ARRESTED AND THEN LATER TASERED FOR SIMPLY ASKING A FEW QUESTIONS.

holy shit... maybe i'm just crazy.

Was he "simply asking questions" b/c what I saw was a progression of events that got worse and worse... most of it due to his douchebaggery.

ok

I have not watched any of them

but only one on youtube late last night


but I think the three questions were not the type that would offend or upset Kerry or his supporters

if anything the questions might rub conservatives the wrong way
and these law enforcement types may have been wanting to shut this guy up for those reasons

just my impression from one quick viewing.

it is douchebaggery to suggest W is corrupt and stole election and should be impeached

Video 2 is the clearest because you can see that the police start poking the guy the minute he starts talking and there is no way that Kerry would not have heard his screaming "help me!" and heard him scream in pain. Video 2 makes Kerry look really, really lame. The guy is screaming "help me" in the background and Kerry is still talking. Unbelievable. I share Headache's outrage.

I'm all for tasering tall people.

Especially ones that stand in front of me at concerts.

Kind of how I felt last night when I tuned into Anderson Cooper to see how mainstream media was covering the Blackwater story and he spent his hour talking about OJ. He also devoted an hour to the Paris Hilton story back when instead of whatever real news was happening then. I have lost all respect for AC over the last few months since he is apparently as celebrity-driven as the rest of the country. There is not one real source of news on TV that I respect anymore.

yes

But they tend to disappoint a lot, too.
