11/16/2006 Archived Entry: "Student tasered for refusing to show ID to police"
ACHTUNG! Student tasered for refusing to show "Papers, please!" You can see a portion of this Glorious Act of Freedom on YouTube (where the viewer comments are pretty interesting, too).
Once again mere possession (and obedient showing) of an ID card is automatically equated with "safety." What an amazing superstition. This poor student may have actually hoped others would join in resistance (depending on which account you believe). That, unfortunately is a pretty amazing superstition in police-state America.
