    I read the news article on this. He got exactly what he was trying to get. He purposely waited until the question session was over and then said something to the effect of, "I've listened to your crap for an hour and half, and now you're going to listen to me". He made sure that a lot of people taped it because he likes to have his stunts taped. Afterwards, he told the police that he wasn't mad, and stated that they were just doing their jobs. He then went on to ask if there would be cameras at the police station / jail.

    There was a reason he was so animated in his resistance, and kept yelling that he was being arrested and "don't tase me". He intentionally did everything he could to disrupt the forum. When people yell, "What about freedom of speech", they have to remember that he was interfering with someone else's freedom to speak at their own forum. As much as he has the freedom of speech, we have the freedom to not listen. I know John Kerry said he wanted to answer the question, but it was the University of Florida who held the forum and they saw him a disruption. They asked him to leave, and he refused. He was being disorderly, and they tried to escort him out. He resisted. At that point it had nothing to do with his question(s) or legthy prefaces. It was about disorderly conduct, trespassing (since he was asked to leave), and he was under arrest, which he also resisted.

    The officer is currently suspended during an investigation about the use of a taser, but I didn't really see anything wrong with it. BTW, I hate John Kerry, but you still have to take extra precautions when someone is acting like a whack-job around a political figure.

    I heard him in the background trying to answer it, but if they hadn't gotten that guy away from the microphone he'd still be prefacing his next questions.

    Our current Prime Minister is a lemming to be honest, he is just waiting for an opportunity to bend down in front of Bush.

    That was assenine, how that many cops would need to taser a student. They clearly had him down, not to mention he was asking a question whereas you could hear Kerry trying to reply and tell the cops to let him reply to his question. I'd be pissed to if I was in his shoes, but I wouldnt have put up a struggle.

    They should have done, what they did at my college when people got off on a tangent...unplug the microphone.
