While we're at it, Salon's Farhad Manjoo has an interview with one eyewitness who seems to believe that the tasered student, Andrew Meyer, may in fact have been a bit of a troll, egging cops on for an "overreaction that would make him a viral video star." Link (thanks Wagner James Au).
Others argue that even if was the case, the treatment he received was unfair. Have your say in the comments.
