Seems a bit contradictory, but it got them on the news, so I guess they succeeded. The Telegraph, to my surprise actually has them entirely en clair.

I was a little worried when that girl was climbing up and got close to the spikey part of the fence.

I'm guessing he didn't have a permit to camp there. Seriously though, he was resisting arrest. I've seen plenty of these protesters arrested peacefully, they tell you to sit down and put your hands behind your back. Just do it.

The British occupiers could only hope for the same back in the 18th century...

Actually, I've got to say I was surprised they tasered him. He was unarmed, and simply being shouty. There were three cops there. A good old fashioned collaring seemed in order. I'm beginning to think the objectors were right that tasers and mace are becoming a first resort not second to last.

I'm less clear on the issue of his not being told why he was being arrested. That could easily have happened before the video rolled. He was already pretty agitated.

As usual, another mook looking for his 15 minutes of YouTube fame. They should have used pepper spray.

You know these people don't go to prison right? They are arrested, cited and then let go. If there is a lot of them, they might get put in a jail cell for awhile while they handle all the processing.

So yeah, resisting is dumb. I don't think the officers should have to chase the guy around the park and wrestle him down. Maybe this should be in the gender thread, because you've also got two female officers and a large male resisting, that doesn't sound like a good mix. These officers are also carrying quite a few weapons, they never want to be in a position where they can be overpowered and have those weapons taken away.

Anyways, I guess this is getting way from the point of the thread :geek:

Theres a lot of cameras, a small crowd gathering. The police probably felt outnumbered and that they had to get it overwith quickly, even if that meant taking him down the hard way.

They failed to warn him though, although with all the yelling I'm not sure the message would have gotten through. It's kind of redundant talking about 'resisting arrest'. I mean isn't that the point of a sit in. You get pictures of the police being overzealous in clearing whatever it is you are occupying and your cause is advanced. What matters is how the police handle people who resist non violently.
