Your history teacher is taking the wrong side of the argument. The guy was not clearly warned, if he was warned at all. I have watched many videos on this from many different angles. The officers just stood there, and then he asks about skull and bones, and they look at each other, then take him away. I would be just as confused as he was if I was arrested. He continued to say that he was presenting information before asking his question, and worked his questions into his little speech. He did ask questions, and they had no right to arrest him.
As I was typing that I thought it was the wrong way to say it but didn't feel like restating it. That was more of an opinion rather than a statement. Maybe I should have said, "In my opinion, your teacher is taking the wrong side of the argument." In saying that though, I do acknowledge that there are indeed more than one side to the argument. I wasn't aware that a University was not public property, although it could be assumed.Who are you to say that his teacher is taking the wrong side of an argument? Were you there? Do you know what happened prior to the man being tazered? History has proven that no video at any angle will give the COMPLETE truth of a situation. Unless the camera happens to be rolling 24/7 and the man who was "assaulted" was followed from the time he stepped out of his car you will never fully know what led up to this. I have not even watched the video but I have high suspicions that it is just another PR case so the plaintiff can sue and make millions. Secondly, are you aware if the man is on state or private property? Free speech is not necessarily allowed in all places as it can cause a mob mentality and incite a riot. The fact is all the man would have to do is refuse to leave or even be quiet when he was told by the officers (even only once), and he is guilty of disobeying and order of a state-sanctioned peace officer. Police have the right to tell you to leave, or to be quiet if you statements put others in jeopardy. The STATE and CITIZENS give them this power to protect the rights of ALL people. If you don't like it vote in someone who agrees with YOUR point of view. Fact is roughly half of the people are age even bother to vote. And if they were on private property, guess what, you have absolutely NO RIGHT to freedom of speech. The property owners, or the security they employ and trust can force you to shut the hell up when ever they feel. Don't like their rules then leave. If you choose to disobey them and not leave you are guilty of trespassing which is also a crime. Moral of the story is don't believe everything you see as even videos are easily swayed or biased.
