Fuck the police.

Nov 17, 2006 • Karen

A UCLA student got tasered what sounds like at least five times by the campus cops after he didn't have his student ID on him at the library. Every student in that library was a witness and you can see at least one other student taking pictures/footage in the clip. Yet they continued to do it. When a student asked for the officers' badge numbers, one of them threatened to taser him too. Hopefully they can be identified by their faces...

The longer I live, I see uniforms as less a public service and more a public threat. I'm sorry, but it's true. My respect for the police just keeps dropping. Listen to the guy screaming and I imagine yours will too.
