The Florida Tasering and O.J.

p>GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A university student with a history of taping his own
practical jokes was Tasered by campus
and arrested after loudly and repeatedly trying to ask U.S. Senator
John Kerry questions during a campus forum.
Andrew Meyer, 21, spent a night in jail before his release Tuesday morning. His attorney, Robert Griscti, did not return messages seeking comment.

Some liberals are under the impression that this is the first warning of the coming brutal police state that will crush all dissent. Some even blame Kerry for allowing the event to happen, as if Kerry would rush down from his podium and single-handedly rescue the kid. (Maybe it could happen. John Kerry served in Vietnam and was a war hero. If you question otherwise, you dragging politics into the gutter). But the truth is the kid deserved it. Kerry was doing a question and answer session with the students (who were these students, though? Does anyone care about what he has to say?) when Andrew Meyer rushed to the microphone and starting complaining that Kerry wasn't answering the student's questions. Kerry finished his current question, then let Meyer have a turn. Meyer, apparently, went over his allotted minute, got cut off, refused to get off the stage, and the rest is history. Maybe the campus police acted too quickly in Tasering Meyer (apparently he was handcuffed when he was Tasered), but I can sympathize with them.

Maybe I am heartless, but the whole thing amused me.

Simpson and the men have been charged with seven felony offences: conspiracy
to commit kidnapping; conspiracy to commit robbery; first degree kidnapping with
use of a deadly weapon; burglary with a deadly weapon; robbery with a deadly weapon; assault with a deadly weapon and coercion with a deadly weapon.
The four men have also been charged with the misdemeanor offence of conspiracy to commit a crime. If convicted on the most serious charges Simpson would face several years, possibly decades, in prison.

While I hate to mention O.J. Simpson, since it is a story that has been way overexposed by the media, mainstream or otherwise, I think that the odds are pretty good that he will get the book thrown at him by the jury. Not only for his latest heist, but they will remember his last crime. At least we were spared watching O.J. struggle to announce football games after his first felony (Tiki Barber is the latest athlete turned broadcaster who makes me cringe).
