Thank you James for forwarding this to me.
My Fellow Americans,
This morning, like I do every morning, I turned on the television, in order to watch CNN's American Morning. Of course, I had to endure meaningless pseudo-news, such as Britney Spears' post-rehab, drug use and O.J. Simpson's "sting operation," before I was actually able to watch segments that mattered. In particular, one shocking story caught my eye:
Yesterday, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) addressed a forum at the University of Florida. When the appointed time came for questions and answers, Andrew Meyer, a 21 year old student, stepped up to the microphone and queried the former presidential candidate:
- "Why did you concede the 2004 Presidential Election within one day, when there was rampant voter disenfranchisement and notable voting machine malfunctions and manipulations?"
- "If you are so worried about Bush invading Iran, why don't you impeach him? Clinton was impeached for a blow job."
- "Were not you and Bush part of the Skull and Bones Society at Yale?"
Soon thereafter, the police forcibly cuffed and floored this courageous, young man. While restrained and showing no signs of resistance, an officer tasered Meyer. In fact, before that act of police brutality, he had even pleaded with them *not* to taser him.
What occured at that forum is unacceptable in a supposedly, liberal, representative democracy. That blatant act of police misconduct was more becoming of a fascist state than one that values freedom of speech. Those three officers should be summarily fired, and Meyer ought to bankrupt that department in civil court. Thank God all of this was recorded on multiple cameras!
I am an angry, fed-up liberal, and others like me are not taking it anymore! Police brutality and the wiles of the fascist, Bush Regime will not silence us from speaking the truth! In fact, actions such as these, embolden us and compel us to speak it even more loudly and boldly. It certainly is time for regime change in our country!
God Bless America - Strength Through Peace,

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - A University of Florida student was Tasered and arrested Monday when he attempted to speak at a forum with U.S. Sen. John Kerry during a question and answer session, university officials said.
Andrew Meyer, 21, asked Kerry, D-Mass., why he did not contest the 2004 presidential election, which he lost to President Bush, and why there had been no moves to impeach Bush.
"He apparently asked several questions — he went on for quite awhile — then he was asked to stop," university spokesman Steve Orlando said. "He had used his allotted time. His microphone was cut off then he became upset."
While as many as four police officers tried to remove Meyer from the forum, he yelled for help and asked "What did I do?" Minutes after Meyer started speaking, he was Tasered.
Meyer was charged with resisting an officer and disturbing the peace, according to Alachua County jail records. No bond had been set. Meyer was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning, a jail official said.
It was not known if Meyer had an attorney.
Orlando said university police would conduct an internal investigation on the incident.
"The police department does have a standard procedure for when they use force, including when they use a Taser," Orlando said. "That is what the internal investigation would address — whether the proper procedures were followed, whether the officers acted appropriately."
