Student Tasered During John Kerry Event: Today's Cartoon

You know, I wonder if these incidents of American university students being attacked and tasered by campus police may have anything to do with the possibility that some of these "officers" are resentful over the fact that they were never quite bright (or rich) enough to actually attend one of these schools, prompting them to use their security certificate from community college to seek revenge on these universities, by venting their frustrations on the "student body".

...Either that, or zapping rich kids with 50000 volts must be a real charge!

In my opinion, the incident at Florida University in which a student was tasered and arrested following his "lively" attempt to get John Kerry to answer a series of personal questions, was appalling; not just in its intent to silence free speech and prevent important questions from being asked... but for making it a crime for a 21 year-old student to act out on a university campus. I mean, isn't that sort of what they're for?

Look, if it weren't for the seclusion of these educational institutions, these impressionable young minds would be carrying on in the public sphere; and in turn, influencing even more impressionable minds. ...Such as those that rely on FOX news.

I watched it on tv. Quite a lot of pain for the courage of his convictions.
