UCLA Student Tazered by Police

Student given multiple stun gun shocks by campus police

(ANAHEIM, CA, 11/16/06) - The Southern California office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-LA) today called for an independent investigation of an incident late Tuesday in which a student at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) was given multiple “Taser” stun gun shocks by campus police.

CAIR-LA was contacted by several UCLA students who expressed their concern about possible civil rights violations by police officers.

The incident began when the student, Mostafa Tabatabainejad, was asked to leave a computer lab after he failed to produce a student ID during a random check. The entire incident was captured on video by another student. While being stunned, Tabatabainejad informed the officers he had a medical condition. [...]

The following is a video footage of the incident recorded by a student present at the scene.

The Real Kazakhstan

First, a disclaimer: My wife and I recently adopted a baby girl from Kazakhstan, so my interest in researching whether Sacha Baron Cohen's new film, Borat, presents a realistic portrayal of the formerly obscure Central Asian republic is more than academic. After all, would you want your daughter associated with a urine-drinking, wife-beating, cow-punching, sister-f******, prostitute-ridden, anti-Semitic nation?

Having said that, I assure you I kept an open mind while doing my research. My conclusion: Borat's Kazakhstan bears little resemblance to the real Kazakhstan. Little resemblance, but not no resemblance. Here is a rundown of the many things Borat gets wrong about Kazakhstan, and the few things that he gets right.


Let's start with the man himself. Borat is not a Kazakh name (though there is a name Bolat). No one in Kazakhstan greets you with "Jagzhemash," which is most likely gibberish or mangled Polish. The official language in Kazakhstan is, not surprisingly, Kazakh, although Russian is widely spoken. Among the country's large ethnic Russian population, Russian is the only language they speak. And, oh yes, khrum is not the word for testicles, in either Russian or Kazakh.[...]

Busy busy busy

Hola amigos y amigas! I've been a little preoccupied with school and work, hence the lack of updates. My apologies to the handful of readers who feel who do visit my blog out of sympathy, for my apparent disinterest lately. I want to assure you all that it isn't indifference towards this blog, rather, it is just an increase in school workload that is keeping me away. After the 22nd of December, the last day of school, I will flourish this blog with lots and lots of updates! I promise! Thanks for sticking around brothas and sistahs. Until then, enjoy this little clip:

Why waste a temper tantrum if nobody is around to see it?

China's execution machine

As China's economy sprials into a whirlwind, which may eventually absorb the global economy one day, their human rights record remains patchy. Sky News has done an inside story on China's 'mobile execution buses'.,,30200-p21983_waghorn,00.html#
