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?

This is some fucked up shit. yeah the kid was annoying but wasnt 5 cops sitting on top of him enough. tasing was absolute overkill and the fact that it was done to shut up a college kid questioning Kerry was the cherry on top. Police state anybody? honestly, its a slippery slope and i think the US is on its way down.
