....for proving my point. Here is the theory of how Democrats don't believe in dissent; And here is the post where Jane Hamsher says, "Democrats should not criticize other Democrats,"
Now, even though I don't believe one whit that Andrew Meyer believes -- There was no reason for him to be arrested and tasered. In a room with Senator John Kerry (D-MA), did the Senator do anything for Andrew Meyer? No. That is why he didn't win in 2004.
Back when I was in SUNY-Stonybrook, I was appointed University Senator. In that position, I represented 10,000 Undergraduate students. The major issue during my term was: Should campus police have guns?
I queried everyone. Students, staff, professors, TA's, RA's and commuters. If the campus police did not have guns, it would take 45 minutes before Suffolk County PD could enter the situation. If the Campus Police did have guns, they can enter the situation. Most people wanted to be protected immediately, so even the most Leftist College Democrat wanted the Campus Police to have guns. The Professors, since they did not live on campus, felt no need to ruin the "ideal" of a peaceful campus.
I made a motion of putting the vote to the floor of the University Senate; And it was punted. The Administration and Professors shut down the debate, even though lives were in balance. Let us not forget, the Long Island Rail Road Shooting happened one county over. Would Campus police have handled this situation differently? The County Police did overreact. But Andrew Meyer still acted like an asshole. Senator Kerry can't protect his own people.
