UCLA Students to Protest Tasers Today

"UCLA Students to Protest Tasers Today"

UCLA students plan to hold a protest today in response to university police officers' repeated use of a Taser gun against a student Tuesday, Inside Higher Ed reports, linking to this Facebook announcement of the march. Police hit Mostafa Tabatabainejad four times with a Taser after he failed to provide a student ID card during a random check, the Daily Bruin reports. The Facebook announcement calls on students to join the march "not just because you're Persian/Iranian but because you care about your fellow human beings." A cellphone videotape of the evidence, obtained by the Daily Bruin, gives a detailed account of the library incident.
