Republican Police Make a Political Statement At John Kerry Address


In a recent event at the University of Florida, the Florida Republican Police Department taser a young man for asking questions.

Too be fair, John Kerry never asks the officers to taser the young man. But then he doesn't try very hard to stop the police from torturing the young man. He simply says, let him speak. Then goes on as if the young man being tasered, is still paying attention.

You can see in the video that the police officers are having a good time as the torture this young man. They are smiling and laughing. Isn't this great fun?

As I've thought about this incident, I can't help but wonder if the police intentionally made a scene in order to disrupt John Kerry's address. It seems to me that the police intentionally made a political statement, making it clear what they would do to liberals that attempt to exercise their right to free speech.

Here you can hear him asking about Skull and Bones. Kerry says to let him ask question. You can also hear a student begging the cops to taser him.

This next video shows that he was a bit annoying. But I don't agree that this is good cause to torture him.

Cops are sadistic, especially when there is a gang of them. I avoid cops like the plague. They kill people on a regular basis around here with impunity. Police work attracts the sickest segment of society.

Hey Wease, what did you think of the murderous Blackwater thugs being exposed for what they are?

They are only being exposed, because Maliki's government is making a big deal of it.

This will work in Bush's favor as he'll have an excuse to disband Iraq's Democratic government a second time.

Tony Snow will use the 'a few bad apples' excuse.

Around town I'm hearing more and more older people remark that Iraqis can't be reasoned with. That they only understand violence.

Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity must be really pumping up support for the slaughter.

You know that I've argued before that the only way to turn this around is for the US to suffer a resounding defeat. Until that happens, we'll just keep anteing up the death toll. I feel so horrible that this continues to look like the path we are on.

Other conquerors have shown us the same pattern. When they appear to be winning, they just keep pushing for more. Even when soundly defeated, some come back for another try.

Until the war comes home, conquering nations can't seem to stop trying to overreach.

We're at the end now. We can't reach further without breaking. The surge was possible, because we gave the troops some breathing room, so that we could deploy a lot of troops, all at once. We had already planned to pull them back, because we had to. Now bush is acting like the drawdown is a concession and not a necessity.

Today, our military is on the edge. If the opposition continues to build, they'll be pushing us back. The American people are being prepped for a new offensive.

After that come the real sacrifice. The draft will come back. The best bet is for it to be announced on Bush's watch, so the candidates can publically condemn this action, while further supporting it in office.

There can be little doubt that the U.S. is going whole hog fascist / socialist / elitist. The funny thing is that Bush treats the troops like crap and they love him for it. I refuse to feel bad for the troops when they love the war so much. Bush starts a war and then they want Americans to support their war effort. Ha! I wouldn't give them the sweat off of my nether regions. They will have to take what they want from me by force.

Agree wholeheartedly.

What's sad is I see much thinking along the lines Weaseldog suggests, that somehow Iraqi's are ungrateful and barbaric for all that we've sacrificed and given for them.
It will not be long before "the only good Iraqi is a dead Iraqi" mentality sets in wholesale. Then expect attempted genocide/ widespread calls for
bomb-em-back-to-the-stone-age, perhaps accompanied by a wider war (Iran? Syria?)
