WASHINGTON D.C. – Sen. John Kerry issued the following statement today, in response to the arrest of a student at the University of Florida.
“In 37 years of public appearances, through wars, protests and highly emotional events, I have never had a dialogue end this way. I believe I could have handled the situation without interruption, but I do not know what warnings or other exchanges transpired between the young man and the police prior to his barging to the front of the line and their intervention. I asked the police to allow me to answer the question and was in the process of responding when he was taken into custody. I was not aware that a taser was used until after I left the building. I hope that neither the student nor any of the police were injured. I regret enormously that a good healthy discussion was interrupted."
Nice comdemnation Senator..........
Apparently certain "centrist" Democrats find it acceptable to taser unarmed, outnumbered, and obviously subdued people if they annoy you. The next thing you know she will be suggesting a "free speech zone" so that protesters are kept out of the line of sight of the ...... oh wait, that idea has already been taken.
"There are rules for publicly expressing one's self in a forum environment, and this kid violated them. He was asked to sit down, he was asked to stop talking, and he was told to leave. He refused all three requests and got tased. I have a hard time coming up with any reaction other than 'so what'."
Now go back to the video and see for yourself at what point during those "three requests" the young man "got tased." I count five uniformed officers, the detainee was on the floor with at least one hand in handcuffs. If this is what Chantel (and her friends Hillary and the DLC) find acceptable in America, no wonder we can launch a pre-emptive strike on a country that posed no real or imminent threat to ours.
