UNIVERSITY students may have to scan their fingerprints in future — to prove they are not bunking off lectures.
... ... Newcastle Free Education Network has organised protests against the plans, claiming the scanners would "'turn universities into border checkpoints" and "reduce university to the attendance of lectures alone".
I wasn't at the mall, I'm not claiming to be an expert on Police policy, and I have no connections to LE. However what this comes down to is that this woman was tresspassing on a premise she was asked to leave on more than one occasion. We take property rights very seriously here, this was a long drawn out incedent with someone from Massholechusetts who thought that they didn't have to follow the rules. She didn't get asked to leave for the first time then tased 30 seconds later. There is no freedom to not listen to cops, we're a reasonable state and you're ordered to leave you should listen. Language barrier is being falsely injected into this story, it's not like it's hard to pantomime telling someone to GFTO.
She had a chance to listen with the request to leave, and chose not too. It's her personal responsibilty to comply with the law, if this were on someones private property they would have had the right to brandish(but not fire) a gun. We don't baby people up here like a lot of the other states, she screwed up and payed the price. Live Free or Die doesn't mean you have the freedom to ignore the law.
New Hampshire is a unique place compared to most other states especially in this part of the country. While we may be ranked #1 in beer consumption we're ranked dead last in poverty even though our social services are minimal. We expect people to be responsible for their actions and the vast majority of people are. I can walk into a store an buy a long gun just my showing my license to prove I'm over 18, no permit, registration, fingerprints needed yet we're 47th for gun violence.
This sort of sums out the New Hampshire way, the rights of the property owner to have a tresspassor removed come before the rights of the tresspassor to keep being an asshole. If you watch the youtube video it's not as bad as TFA makes it seem, she didn't get shot with a taser it was a handheld one to get her to hold still so she could be cuffed. There's also a funny part where a random bystander walks over and stands right over the two cops trying to cuff her and just watches them.
