My take on the UCLA tasering


Lisa W has expressed her thoughts on this already, and she appears to be the first blogger to do so.

For a video of what the incident was, go here.

I just had to put down a few thoughts of my own. While the investigation may still ongoing, I would hate to openly speculate and interfere with a future trial. However, why in the world would anybody not have ID as long as they are on campus? I remember being in college back in the day, and this one piece of school property was CRITICAL in more ways than one. Now, I realize I graduated from a military institution, and things were a lot different. Seems to me checking all ID's rather than just one person if there is a group at a table is a smart move, IMO.
BTW, tasers used for people with medical conditions are lawsuits waiting to happen.
The school needs to check things out and make sure the officers were not in the wrong, but students need to be prepared to follow the rules.
