Whatever Happened to Free Speech?

This link will take you to a video of a student being dragged away, held down, and tasered for not shutting up when he was told to by Univeristy of Florida campus police. Only one person openly questioned the police’s actions and tried to help the student. The kid was a little bit obnoxious, but he wasn’t violent and he wasn’t dangerous. He had the same right to free speech that we all do. Or do we? What will you do when you find yourself watching a fellow citizen being tortured for speaking out?

Thank you to Ask-Steve for bringing this to my attention.
