We posted the video of the student being tasered last night, below. It's horrendous. At one point they tase him simply because he wouldn't, or couldn't, stand up after they tased him the first time. At worst, that counts as civil disobedience. You don't get to tase someone because they refuse to stand up. You can simply put them in handcuffs and drag them out. A student reports that she was threatened with a taser for simply asking one of the cops for his name and badge number.

This is on film. There were dozens of students watching. There is very little question as to what really happened. These cops need to be fired. This was absolutely vicious.

There's more from the Los Angeles Times, and the student paper here, and there is a protest at UCLA tomorrow (Friday).
