This story is odd....apparently, you have to have your ID in the library at UCLA (maybe just after 11pm...not sure). So anyway, security decides to check IDs, including the ID of a middle eastern descended student. He fails to show it (I think he had it, but refused). He then decides to leave the library rather than show the ID. They stop him, and he goes limp (classic civil disobedience move). Instead of arresting him, they tell him to get up. When he refuses, they taser him...repeatedly. They ask him to get up, he stays limp, they taser him.
Sounds like torture to me. Anyway, I heard about it today on the Michelangelo something or other show on OutQ radio (Sirius). It's an interesting story about where our nation is heading.
