Was Use of Taser Unreasonable on a Florida Student?

Comments Off

A blog about the tasering of a University of Florida was posted on Sept, 19, 2007 offering an opinion on whether the tasering was excessive and whether there was an issue of free speech. For an excellent analysis, check out
the website for the University of Florida’s newspaper the Independent Florida Alligator. The newspaper has a good story about the student tasered and how he is known to stir up controversy. The newspaper reports on all sides and allows opinions from all angles.

You may want to read these articles and ask the question – in a time when a tragedy like the Virginia Tech murders occurs, when and how is it appropriate for university law enforcement to respond ?
