Just a quick lunch-time post. I don't have a strong opinion of what happened here other than to ask these questions:
- Why would Kerry still be giving College speeches? Isn't he kinda old news?
- The kid may have been a tad obnoxious, but was it necessary to have four cops "take him down?"
- When we've gotten to the place in this country where valid questions (even if voiced in an obnoxious way) get you tasered and arrested, we're on a short trip to scary town.
I might not give this story coverage, were it not for the fact that this man was carrying Greg Palast's book, Armed Madhouse. As you can see from the post below, I'm a huge fan.
There are several versions of the video available, if this one doesn't present a full enough story.
