Can Anyone Remember What Student Arrest Was Like Before Tasers?
After Andrew Meyer was arrested Monday and repeatedly Tased by police after verbally niggling John Kerry, his cry of "Don't tase me, bro!" has sparked an online phenomenon all its own.
Even YTMND got in on it: donttasemebro.ytmnd.com.
Vox notes that while the quote's been appropriated with a light-hearted veneer, it's being used as a tool to spark tense discussions about the ethics of cops, Tasers and unruly suburban university kids. Can't we all just get along?
