Don’t Tase Me, Bro: DBKP Top Quote of 2007

In Words, Video and Pictures throughout American history

DON’T TASE ME, BRO!

“Don’t Tase Me, Bro!”

“Don’t Tase Me, Bro!”
shouted by a Florida college student as officers
removed him from a speech by Sen. John Kerry
Don’t Tase Me, Bro!

It may not have the ring of “Give me Liberty or Give me Death!” but “Don’t Tase Me, Bro!” became part of the American lexicon in 2007.

ET, U.S. Senator John Kerry addressed a Constitution Day forum at the University of Florida in Gainesville, which was organized by the ACCENT Speaker’s Bureau, an agency of the university’s student government. Toward the end of the question and answer period, University police forcibly removed Andrew Meyer, a 21-year-old fourth-year undergraduate telecommunications student,[1] from the forum, restraining him through direct force and drive stunning him with a Taser.

Several videos of the episode were then posted on the Internet. The video shot with Meyer’s camera had 2.6 million views by October 19, 2007 and was considered a viral video. The New Oxford American Dictionary listed “tase/taze” as one of the words of the year for 2007, popularized by the widespread use of “Don’t tase me, bro!”
