Police Brutality in UCLA Library.

UCLA Campus police officers tasered an unarmed student at the college Library for refusing to show his ID. The Student was attempting to leave when officers grabbed him, when the student verbally objected they used their tasers on him at least four times. On a youtube videophone clip you can hear the student being tasered and the police threatening to taser other students who are objecting to the officers conduct. This is outright brutality. It sickens me to watch this video, but I urge you to see for yourself. The behavior of the police, who outnumber the Student by at least three, is at best unjustified. If they felt the need to forcibly remove an individual who was already leaving they could have done so without use of excessive force. In the America I remember the police are required to use restraint. Is it any surprise that the student's name is Mostafa Tabatabainejad. There are many knuckle dragging mouth breathers who believe 9/11 justifies arbitrarily electrocuting muslim looking people in public places for refusing to 'show their papers'. Today those assholes can be proud of the UCLA Campus Cops. I am not.

I was truly shocked about the video and see that a lot of people in youtube were downplaying this incident so I stayed up the whole night creating a website for this and even registered a domain. Please visit to vote and express your opinion. We have to do something.
