Jeb Bush gets rude welcome

Police disperse angry protesters in Downtown T-station

Saturday, October 07, 2006

By Ervin Dyer, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


<snip>Mr. Grove said a Port Authority canine unit was called in to help with crowd control. Two officers used their tasers to stun two protesters who "were asked to leave, but did not go," Mr. Grove said.

The tasers he said were empty of the cartridges that supply a more powerful charge.

"It was a very tense situation. They were very close to the governor and shouting on top of him."

As a precaution, the governor was ushered into a T-station supply closet and stayed there until the crowd left.

No arrests were made and no citations were issued, Mr. Grove said. Mr. Bush was not injured.

The two men who were tasered were shaken and left the protest, said David Meieran, with the Thomas Merton Center and one of the protesters with Uprise Counter Recruitment.

1. The Taser gun is but another weapon that WILL be abused by the state.
Florida police are oinkers.

6. A few months ago cops tazed a woman in Redmond Wa...
... for not following their instructions. She wasn't following their instructions because she was in the midst of a diabetic seizure attack thingamajiggie.

Some DUers were, shall we say, more sympathetic towards the cops than one might think appropriate.

I seem to recall the woman being pregnant too - but I might just be making shit up on that part...
