Come and see the violence inherent in the system.

While my tongue is planted firmly in cheek with this title, this incident is really very disturbing. Apparently a UCLA student was tasered multiple (six) times for refusing to leave the library when the cops asked him to. In the cop's defense, he was brown (or some shade similar) and a Muslim so he should be expected to offer affirmative evidence as to why he is not a terrorist. That may seem insensitive, but as far as CNN is concerned, that is reason enough to suspect a Muslim of hating America. Here is the video of the incident:

Here is the thing, this guy was a student at UCLA who happened to forget his ID. He was on the way out of the library (which he had every reason to be in), got mad at the cops for harassing him and resisted them. Good for him, and good for the students who stood up to the cops. This is what happens when everyone is considered a terrorist. Thank you Patriot Act. I can feel the Freedom in my extremely manly loins.

Note to self:

When borrowing from the UCLA library, make sure to return all materials ON TIME.
