UCLA Police Torture Student With Tasers For Being Uncooperative

link: Not for the squeamish

I thought the purpose of tasers was for police to protect themselves from violent subjects.

Apparently, UCLA Police policy is that tasers can be used to torture someone for noncompliance.

I support the police and understand that theirs is a difficult, thankless job. Civil society would not be possible without them.

However, the officers at UCLA went too far. This was torture for noncompliance and I find it appalling, disgusting, repugnant, outrageous, and completely unacceptable.

I don't care if the dude was being an asshole or not. You can't torture someone for noncompliance. You cuff him, carry him out, and arrest him.
