Student shot by taser gun five times for forgetting his ID

Video direct from the land of the free.

Student shot with Taser by UCPD officers
Video Shows UCLA Police Using Stun Gun On Student

The man’s name is Mostafa Tabatabainejad. It seems as though he objected to an officer manhandling him. This earned him the first shock. When he fell to the ground, he was given four further shocks for being unable to stand up — even though he said that he has a medical condition.

I wonder if it was because he had “mongolian eyes“.

The officers then threatened the gathering crowd of students, saying that they would taser anybody who got close.

  1. The link was on fark…

    Someone who knows the guy said he was an asshole who liked to find “the most difficult solution to the simplest of problems”

    Getting zapped so many times was probably excessive, but I’d still rather be tasered than shot.

  2. Moderately entertaining movie, marred only by poor camera-work, lack of Dolby 5.1 support and unconvincing cries of pain.

    3/5.

    Viewers of the movie also watched, ‘Death by Frying Pan: When College Caterers Strike Back’.

  3. Some people just have a problem with authority. Probably didn’t listen to his mommy either while growing up. Next time he will remember his ID instead of
    trying to be the next Rodney King on prime time.
