Tasered Student Makes Waves On Web

September 19, 2007

The taser has come a long way, baby. Nowadays they even come in pastels, metallic pink and electric blue. But if you're going to taser a student, it's probably better for officers if there aren't a million cameras around recording those now famous last words.

"Don't taser me bro!" yelled the student.

From every angle.

"Don't taser me bro I didn't do anything" said the student.

The video electrified the web.

"Moron got what he deserved" read one post.

"Sure he got what he deserved, if this were communist China" responded another.

Whether he deserved it or not, Andrew Meyer sure didn't seem to win friends with his questioning technique, addressing Senator John Kerry.

"I'll ask my question thank you very much. He's talked two hours I can talk two minutes. I'm not even done yet. I have two more questions. Thank you for cutting my mike. Are you gonna arrest me? Excuse me! Excuse me!' said Meyer.

And when he yelled,

"Is anyone watching this?"

They weren't just watching,

"Is anyone watching this?"

Some were applauding the officers. Meyer acted like he was being mugged.

"Help, help, help!"

And once tackled but still resisting,

"Get the **** off me, I didn't do anything"

He got tasered, thus joining the ranks of those who have been electrified on camera. From pigs used as guinea pigs for taser testing, to certain reporters who have shocked themselves to demonstrate the effects.

While on the ground, officers warned Meyer he'd be tasered if he didn't cooperate.

"Why did you do that! Oh my god. Why did you do that. What did I do wrong?" said Meyer.

He seemed to think his life was in danger.

"There are people who know I'm here. Can't kill me. Ask em where I am cause they're gonna kill me, they're gonna kill me."

Well actually he was released the next day. We don't know how many volts Meyer got hit with, but at CNN we delight in watching our very own Rick Sanchez take a 50,000 volt jolt.

"It hurts"

On that Rick and Andrew agree. We do have one tip to reduce chances of getting tasered.

"Bro you're gonna break my arm."

Don't call the officers "bro."
