UCLA student tasered by campus police
On Tuesday evening, UCLA student Mostafa Tabatabainejad was repeatedly tasered in the school library after failing to show proper ID, campus newspaper The Daily Bruin reported. Someone present had a video-capable cell phone, it seems, and a video of the disturbing incident ended up on YouTube.
The UCLA student body has been protesting the actions of the officers while the university investigates.
After the severe injuries sustained by Georgetown DPS officers in a brawl several weeks ago, I had considered the idea of somehow arming the officers reasonable. Watching that video has definitely turned me off to that idea.
