By now, you may have heard of the police tazer incident at UCLA. It’s sick and great that we live in an age where it can be captured on camera and posted on youtube. How did the ClICC lab become the equivalent of an Iraqi torture chamber?
I had chills watching this and also a ton of flashbacks of being an undergrad at UCLA, reminded of how incredibly unsafe and useless the UCPD were. Much like the student tasered I can sympathize with being in the computer lab late and needing some extra time to work and not having my ID. But to tazer him repeatedly? In front of that many protesting witnesses? I’m so sad this couldn’t be stopped. I’m so sad this happened at my alma mater. And yet, I’m not surprised.
