Freedom of Speech-Not for Andrew Meyer! Relationship expert Dr. Molly Barrow

- A University of Florida student was Tasered and arrested in Gainsville, FL on Sept. 18 after trying to ask U.S. Senator John Kerry about the 2004 election and other subjects during a campus forum. The 21 year old student is held in an
Alachua County jail for asking a question in a forum, and then resisting being arrested for doing so.
I find the treatment of this student outrageous. It appeared that John Kerry stood silently by as did school administrators, and a room full of students, while police abused a student for talking. Police more than overreacted and all should be fired. Wouldn't your child, if suddenly surrounded by police, and after asking, "What did I do? " panic when forced up the isle in front of everyone just for asking a legitimate question to Skull and Bones member John Kerry. Shame on all of you, not on Andrew Meyer. Are you all Skull and Bones members or just weak and intimidated???? Students should have walked out and left Kerry and UF with an empty room. Administrators should never let this happen on their campus. They created the problem by censoring him and surrounding him, and denying him his rights. Like Fox News turning off the mike on Emmy award winner Sally Fields as she talked about mothers' feelings for their children in Iraq, America is losing her freedom of speech shockingly, quickly and regrettably.
