Ignorant, stupid kid gets tazed at UCLA for resisting the enforcement of established rules
Anyone who starts screaming about the Patriot Act after refusing to produce ID in a major university library deserves to have reality kick them in the crotch.
Evidently there is a rule at UCLA that only faculty, staff, and students are allowed in the library after a certain time at night and can be asked to prove their identification. This is for the campus community’s safety.
Then along comes this idiot and he wants to refuse, to resist, and to fail to comply with that rule, so he ends up getting tazed. Boo hoo.

Notice how the manliness of this idiot quickly disappears as he cries about the oppression of the government, the Patriot Act, and various other paranoid idiocy. All for not cooperating with the basic instruction of “Get up”.
In my work, I deal almost exclusively with academics from the professor to the librarian to the student. And I have to say this demonstration of intelligence on the part of this idiot kid is par for the course. I am befuddled by the ignorance and lack of problem-solving skills displayed by students from the community college to the most respected institutions of “higher learning” in our country I see each day.
Maybe the officers were out of line, but I do not see it. You want to prove a point and refuse to comply with the rules and authority in our society (by simply showing your ID in a freakin’ university library to a security officer), expect consequences. If you continue to refuse to cooperate and begin to resist, expect stiff consequences.
Then there is the subject of the Patriot Act and the paranoia of the academic world…
Don’t get me started.
