    It's actually a pretty lengthy thread.

    Turns out it was policy, just in case all you Bruins want to start up with any of that Martin Luther King bullshit with the UCLA rent-a-cops, for whom Bull Connor was quite the weenie.

    Bull Connor was the asshat who turned the firehoses on the civil rights protesters, right?

    Birmingham police chief, let a lot of brutal things happen. You're probably thinking of Selma.

    And ... UCLA didn't taser an Iranian student. UCLA campus police officers tasered a student.His nationality matters not.

    This policy should be called "Lawsuits "r Us".

    If his nationality doesn't matter, than neither does anything else.

    "Two carbon-based life forms tasered a single carbon-based life form today in an attack that was captured on a cell phone. More at 11."

    Sorry, just don't think it matters. A young man was killed in a terrible accident. I don't care if he's a fucking Martian.

    Tell me why it matters.
