UCLA police go way overboard when a student fails to show his student ID in the library.
A student was shot multiple times in the library on UCLA campus on Tuesday, Nov. 14. A community service officer (library security guard) was making regular rounds at the library, randomly asking students to show their student ID in order to enforce the school's policy allowing only UCLA students in the library after 11 PM. Mostafa Tabatabainejad, for an unknown reason, did not show his student ID and was asked to leave. Several minutes later the community service officer returned with campus police. Witnesses report that Mostafa had his backpack on and was leaving when campus police approached him. One officer grabbed Mostafa's arm at which point Mostafa told the officer to let him go. Mostafa continued to tell the officers to get off of him, instead they fired their Tazers. Mostafa dropped to the floor screaming and yelled "I have a medical condition." Officers then asked him to stand up, when he didn't they shot him again with the Tazer. He and the officers made slow progress towards the building's exit, Mostafa being tazered several times along the way.
Students who asked for the officer's names and badge numbers were threatened with tazers.
