The UCLA student who was viciously tasered by university police is not an Anglo. His name is Mostafa Tabatabainejadd and he’s Muslim. I knew you’d be surprised.
“It was the most disgusting and vile act I had ever seen in my life,” said David Remesnitsky, a 2006 UCLA alumnus who witnessed the incident.
I bet he wouldn’t have been tasered if he was a middle-aged Anglo named Bob Morris. Police are way more leery about thumping people like me – which says something ugly about class and race in America.
That makes four major incidents of Los Angeles-area police violence in the past few months that have been captured on video. The LAPD clubbing video on July 8 I posted on YouTube has now been viewed nearly 200,000 times.

This is yet one more reason Sue and I will be moving out of Los Angeles soon. I mean, why continue living in such a toxic environment? Yes, cops can be thugs anywhere, but the ones in L.A. are especially vicious.

The student was apparently just standing there doing nothing.
Tabatabainejad was also stunned with the Taser when he was already handcuffed, said Carlos Zaragoza, a third-year English and history student who witnessed the incident.
“(He was) no possible danger to any of the police,” Zaragoza said. “(He was) getting shocked and Tasered as he was handcuffed.”
