Well there was yet another march on campus today. The students were once again protesting the tasing of Andrew Meyer by Officer Nicole Mallo. I wonder if half the students who marched knew what they were marching for or if they just wanted to be with the "in crowd" because as you know it's cool to hate police and protest law and order! Or perhaps they wanted to get out of Sociology class.
Remember this: hate police = cool, protest = cool, supporting law and order = bad, very bad.
The ever controversial John Kerry released a statement that he regretted "a good healthy discussion was interrupted" when a student was tasered and arrested by UPD.
Oh oh oh so it was the tasering of Andrew Meyer that interrupted the two-sided, give and take conversation you were having with the polite, innocent young man.
I didn't know that.
And to think I was sure that perhaps the one-sided diatribe by Meyer was actually preventing a two-person dialogue. And I was sure that it was the obnoxious badgering and refusal to actually engage in a dialogue and refusal to abide by forum decorum and policies that interrupted the alleged conversation you say you were having but nobody else saw.
Perhaps Senator Kerry could have told Meyer to either get to the point or STFU, now that would have been really interesting.
Turns out there are a lot of groups on facebook opposed to the vilification of the UPD officers. Looks like Andrew's fifteen minutes in the spotlight might just be turning on him.
Perhaps the tasing incident is Meyer's "swift-boat" eh?
The ACLU released a statement about the incident today. Their esteemed executive director stated that UPD “squandered the free speech rights of both Kerry and Meyer.”
He also said that people have a reasonable expectation to ask questions in a public setting and that Kerry had a reasonable expectation to answer the questions.
No f*cking kidding?
Gee, the rest of us morons didn't know that.
