Toys for our boys in blue

Isn't "campus police brutality" an oxymoron along the lines of a "gummy snake bite"? Apparently not in L.A., where they take their police brutality very seriously.

Tazing someone repeatedly while asking them to stand up: It's the new "stop hitting yourself...stop hitting yourself."

Mostafa Tabatabainejad should count himself lucky that he was only guilty of failing to leave the library in a timely manner when he would not produce his campus ID. Imagine what could have happened if he had been caught attempting to use a halogen lamp in his room or take more than a cup of soda and a piece of fruit out of the dining hall.*

*This sentence probably only makes sense to Amherst college students. I have tucked many a bagel under my jacket to elude the steely eyes of the law. Perhaps not coincidentally, I was never tased.
