I watched a video on "Florida campus cops on leave after taser incident." After watching this video I was very outraged at the way these cops handled this situation. Andrew Meyer is a student at Florida state and has the same rights all americans have. He has freedom of speech. By tasering him he lost that right. This student did absolutely nothing wrong and shouldn't have been punished the way he was. Andrew has the right to stand up for what he believes in and say what he feels. In no way was what he did, harmful to anybody around him. I can see if he started to get violent or cussing, and screaming with no purpose then tasering would have been an understandable option. But solely just expressing your thoughts and concerns should not be punished. This made me want to write a letter of some sort to president Bush and explain my feelings, but Id probably get tasered.
This goes to show you how bad Americans have become. We are not thinking before we act. We are doing things that we know sooner or later we will regret. I ask you this, what has happened? I watched this video a few times to see if my perspective would change, it never did. Mr. Meyer has every right to tell Sen. John Kerry what he thinks. He knew he had the freedom of speech, if he didn't have it he most likely would have not done this.

The U.S. has everything it needs and more. I think we should become more active with helping the people that are less fortunate then our own. We have strong educations and are able to go to a stable and dominate school each day. Most take it for granted. We shouldn't, we should all realize that not to far away kids younger than us are working to feed their family. The U.S. helps and sends help, money, and food but not everyone is aware of the disadvantages other places have. Education is the main key of being successful. WIthout education I wouldnt't get anywhere and netiher would anyone else I know. The U.S. should get going and start helping more and more eachday. We might already be helping alot, but I dont see it. People are more concerned about buying the designer clothes or that expensive car, etc. We all take education for advantage. We dont even notice how big of an aspect it is in our lives.
