One more reason to hate UCLA.

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- A UCLA police officer shocked a student with a stun gun at a campus library after he refused repeated requests to show student identification and wouldn't leave, police said.

The student, Mostafa Tabatabainejad, was shocked Tuesday at about 11 p.m. as police did a routine check of student IDs at the University of California, Los Angeles Powell Library computer lab.

"This is a long-standing library policy to ensure the safety of students during the late-night hours," said UCLA Police Department spokeswoman Nancy Greenstein.

She said police tried to escort Tabatabainejad, 23, out of the library after he refused to provide identification. Tabatabainejad instead encouraged others at the library to join his resistance, and when a crowd began to gather, police used the stun gun on him, Greenstein said.

Tabatabainejad was arrested for resisting and obstructing a police officer and later released on his own recognizance. He declined to comment Wednesday night.

The incident was recorded on another student's camera phone and showed Tabatabainejad screaming while on the floor of the computer lab.

It was the third incident in a month in which police behavior in the city was criticized after amateur video surfaced. The other two involved the Los Angeles Police Department.

Acting Chancellor Norman Abrams promised an investigation.

"The safety of our campus community is of paramount importance to me," Abrams said in a statement.


Now people are saying that it was a racist act. Idiots. Yeah it was way out of line, but racist? No. The UCPD are just a bunch of power hungry assholes and I'm sure they were itching to use their stun guns the first chance they got. It happened in the computer lab I go to frequently. Scary. In a longer article in the Daily Bruin, a girl who was there said one of the officers threatened to stun her if she didn't go upstairs or something. Glad to know these are the guys responsible for our campus' safety.

Oh, school.

I feel behind already. I am exhausted and kind of grouchy. At the start of my last year, I'm finally learning what it takes to go to class prepared, and I don't like it. How stupid is this assignment: read each chapter or article and write IN 20 WORDS OR LESS the main argument of the author. Yeah. For a 52 page article, I need to sum it up in 20 words. Right. Then I have to take the article that I was assigned and make up a question that relates it to the other readings. Lucky me, I got the introduction of the textbook where no points are really made. So I have that to finish before I can go to sleep. And I haven't even started on my reading for my primates class, I hope to do all that tomorrow after work. I think I enjoy class one day and work the next, and so on. It's better than having to do both in one day, even if it means 6 hours of class.

I can't remember the last time I've been so excited for the release of a DVD. Yes people, the Little Mermaid comes out today. My mom was supposed to get it for me at Target today but I don't know if she ended up going. I can always get it this weekend though and I'm looking forward to torturing Dustin with it. So many good things to watch. LOST comes back tomorrow, hell yes. Unfortunately I have to wait for SOMEONE to get here this weekend so we can watch it together. Bummer. At least I have Project Runway Reunion Special to get me through the day. My goal is to finish all my school crap by 7 so I can be free to watch everyone pick on Keith, who definitely deserves it. Oh and I saw Ugly Betty and really liked it so that's one more thing to DVR and force Dustin to watch with me. Not to mention UCLA football this Saturday. I have a feeling all we're going to do now on the weekends is sleep and watch TV. Oh wait, that's all we do already!

I need sleep.

Noooooooo...

Project Runway.

Oh my God.

Watch it and then talk to me.

Bored bored bored bored... bored.

Cake love.

When we get married, I WILL HAVE THIS.

I made that sushi with a make-shift sushi mat: my potholder wrapped in plastic. It tasted like sushi but it kinda fell apart.

Right now my brothers are having a party since my parents are in San Diego for the weekend and I'm fucking pissed. They're bumping some shitty music and it's 10:30 at night. I hope my 80 year old neighbors call the cops. Execpt that my 19 year old brother is drunk or high or both. I'm seriously so disappointed in my brother. He's turned out an asshole too. I went out there to look at the damage and told him that he better clean all that shit up and he just rolled his eyes at me. He's really an asshole sometimes. As for my step-brother... he has no future. THIS is his future. He'll still be living at home by the time he's 40, still waiting for my parents to go out of town so he can invite over his loser, free-loading friends and then can use him for all he's worth. Which isn't much. Honestly I'm just so pissed right now. I wish I had somewhere else to go.

My bebeh.
