Thanks in part to protest, Chomp the Vote hits goal
* THE ORGANIZATION AIMED
FOR 1,000 STUDENTS.
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
Tuesday's protest over Andrew
Meyer's Tasering offered a chance
for Chomp the Vote, Student
Government's non-partisan voters
drive, to increase its visibility.
Frank Bracco, co-director of
Chomp the Vote, said he went to
protests on Turlington Plaza and
Emerson Alumni Hall to find "stu-
dents who care."
"Since these are students who
seem to care about issues, they
should seem to care about voter
registration, too," Bracco said.
On Wednesday, Chomp the Vote
reached its initial goal of having
1,000 students register to vote or
update their voter information for
Alachua County, Bracco said., The
registrations were a result of the
entire semester's efforts.
"We're very excited about that,
and we're hoping we can keep up
that momentum," he said.
After a successful premiere in
2004, when Chomp the Vote regis-
tered 8,000 voters, the organization
practically disappeared for the next
Bracco said Chomp the Vote has
turned itself around by becoming
more visible, adding that the organi-
zation is far from its final objective of
registering 3,000 to 5,000 students.

director, Tyler Antar, called Hannity
and explained that the organization

Bracco said the complexes will
host the events for free, but Chomp

know the exact cost.

His speech, given in honor of Constitution

his belief that recent surveillance acts are in

"These days, it's hard to find a reason to
celebrate the Fourth Amendment," Slobogin
There are four types of surveillance the
government uses that the Supreme Court
has ruled are not covered by the Fourth
Amendment. Slobogin believes these should
be regulated by requiring a warrant.
Using slides, Slobogin outlined the four

Bars get fire-safety training

Local bar and nightclub staff members gath-

The 52 representatives who completed the

GFR will require every bar and nightclub to

present during its night inspections.
Deputy Fire Chief Tim Hayes said the badge
will show the person is trained in evacuation

Nine employees of GFR's Risk Reduction

fire safety and prevention, but also the damage
"You know where the manager of this club is
right now?" Hayes asked the crowd during the
video. "He's in jail."
Jordan Cuffe, a manager at Rue Bar, said he
didn't mind the training.

Dull platform lacks
depth, new ideas
Considering all that's happened this week -Andrew
Meyer, Tasers, UPD, worldwide'news coverage and
so on everything else just seems'boring in com-
parison. Take, for instance, the Gator Party platform.
Its Tuesday release was a little overshadowed by what
has been dubbed "Tasergate," but we got around to it. -
But there's not much to report. It's safe to say this is one
of the most boring platforms we've seen in a while.
One of the platform's points is to "oppose budget cuts
in the State University System." This just begs the ques-
tion: What Student Government party in its right mind
would support those budget cuts? Who'd vote for those
people? We can't help but imagine Gator just tacked this
onto the end of its platform to take up space.
One idea we thought had potential went sour as soon
as we started asking questions. Gator wants to institute a
"Faculty/Student Discount Day," claiming it would give
college students a break while providing a boost to the
The problem here? Gator said it would probably only
be at the UF Bookstore once a semester, to start. So can
Gator fill us in on the boosting-the-economy part? If the
party could have this at the mall, Target or grocery stores
once a month, we'd listen.
Metered parking at Southwest Recreation Center is a
nice idea, but once again, the logic behind it is flawed.
Parking meters, by nature, require people to meter them.
Unless these meters require about 20 quarters an hour, UF
probably can't afford to hire more parking enforcement
officers for this lot.
Gator prides itself on "tangible" goals it ran with the
same idea in the spring but maybe it should consider
some further-reaching, better thought-out ideas.

I'm not just rambling about horizontal happy faces.
It was an important contribution to society. How else
would we electronically express our immense happi-
ness, make weak attempts to flirt, try to salvage what's
left of awkward conversations and end sentences when
we don't feel like using periods? Yes, the horizontal
happy face surely bettered online conversational skills.
But the point of this whole bit is we can't even find
time for a nose anymore. For some reason it really
struck me: Even I don't include the nose.

Taser incident sends message to Iraq
I am sickened by the story and video of the
student tortured by the Taser for free speech.
I am shocked by the students who sat by
silently and watched the police abuse. Do they
believe that would never happen to them? It is
very scary that free speech is not valued at UF
by the students and police. And to think we

Kudos to Kyle Cox on his column regard-

covering many points the media failed to ad-

who has viewed the full-length videos of the
incident would have to admit there were mul-
tiple non-forceful steps taken prior to Tasering
The video showed that at the time of the
Tasering, Meyer's left arm was not secured
behind his back, but rather stretched out
because he was using it in a dear attempt to

Meyer's violent behavior placed others
around him at risk. UPD officers responded
by doing their job.
We live in a post-Columbine, post-Virginia
Tech era, where tragedies occur without warn-
ing with far worse outcomes than Meyer get-
Bottom line: Meyer broke the law, resisted
arrest, and put others in harm's way. It is a UF
policy to not tolerate disruptive behavior. I
support the quick and appropriate actions tak-

Immature student deserved Tasering
It never ceases to amaze me how liberals
are able to cast any situation into a light that
is beneficial to them; the most recent case in
point being the infamous "Don't Tase me, bro"
incident Monday. In the time it took to upload
a shaky video on YouTube, the liberal talking
points were already spelled out: Fascist police
use force to squash free speech.
However, those who were there or the
millions who watched the incident online
saw a slightly different story. They saw an
aggressive questioner who was disrespectful
to the police, the audience and Kerry with his
well-prepared act. They saw an overdramatic
ideologue attempt to seize his moment of im-
Moreover, they saw an arrogant, antagonis-
tic student whose immaturity led to him being
Tasered and carted off to jail for a night. Once
he began violently resisting the orders of the
police, it was their responsibility to each stu-
dent here to use whatever practical means in
getting Meyer subdued.
I applaud UPD for its patience and restraint
in dealing with this unpredictable situation.

Taser incident not a free-speech issue
I was present at Meyer's incident and have
to say that the police were 100 percent right
in their actions. He was acting extremely ag-
gressive and being very loud and disruptive,
growing angry right from the beginning. He
seemed to be almost provoking the officers.
This was not in any way an issue of free
speech. Meyer was not Tasered because of
anything that he said. He was Tasered because
he was violently resisting arrest. Contrary to
rumors, he was not handcuffed while being
Tasered. He was Tasered so he could be hand-
cuffed. He was also given repeated warnings
that if he did not calm down and comply with
the officers, he would be Tasered.
I was nervous during the incident, not
knowing whether Meyer might be armed. He
was acting very aggressively, and in today's
post-Sept. 11 world, we cannot simply as-
sume someone is unarmed, especially in that
situation. The auditorium was very full and
has few exits. The officers were only trying to
protect the people in that auditorium, and as
one of them, I am thankful.
Police prevented possible harm
In regards to the Tasering incident on cam-
pus during the Kerry forum, the UPD officers
acted appropriately in the handling of Meyer.
Students and faculty quick to cry out that this
was an injustice need to objectively look at
this situation and realize Meyer caused the
incident, not the police.
As a former Senate page, I used to work
dose to senators, including Kerry. Meyer's be-
havior was unprofessional, disrespectful and
a stain on UF's reputation. It is impossible to
have an intellectual discussion when someone
behaves the way Meyer chose to.
After viewing the various video angles of
'the incident, it appears Meyer left the police
no choice in their actions. They have a sworn
duty to protect the audience and the high-
profile speaker present in the room. Such
behavior in the Capitol or in Washington,

More people Tasered than Meyer
In light of the release of the police report,
I hope people will realize that the Meyer
Tasering incident was not about First-
Amendment rights. To say a person who ask
ed a question even though the allotted ques-
tion-and-answer time was over, who saw it fit
that his questions were more important than
the people ahead of him, and was able to yell
questions at Kerry for a good bit of time before

First-Amendment rights is ridiculous.
The police did not remove him for being
too controversial or for asking the "tough
questions" but for being a belligerent, petu-
lant kid who had complete disregard for the
established etiquette of a forum. He was dis-
ruptive, and it became dear after watching the
video that he didn't really want answers from
Kerry, just to stump him. Tasering him was not
warranted, but removing him was. If people
really want to be outraged about Tasering,
they should read about the pregnant woman

Wednesday's protest was a continua-

whne about 300 students marched to the
University Police Department. Later, about
100 went to Emerson Alumni Hall.
She held a cardboard sign that read,
"Have you seen my free speech?"
"I feel like if we protest for several days
until we get what we want, it shows solidar-

UPD Lt. Stacy Ettel met the protesters at
the door of the police station and handed
out citizen complaint forms.
Ettel said he didn't know how many com-
plaints UPD received Tuesday, but he added
most of them had been e-mailed. He said
that by the end of the day, the department's
phone lines were full.
UPD has discussed Meyer's arrests with
several students, although it has not con-
ducted a formal meeting with them.
Benjamin Dictor, a UF political science ju-
nior who had a prominent role in Tuesday's

still turning up the day after a large protest.

One student suggested filing a formal
complaint as a group to UPD later that
night, while another suggested protesting

elicited a few yells of agreement.

Gainesville band gets break in New York

At the turn of the century, the

tnicotine-filled, dimly lit nightclubs

rock- stars have to be on their best
behavior to impress the record labels
that often scout bands at

seven major record labels.
"It is a whole different vibe play-

perfect what they are doing, because
the sound changes when you lose an

Record label executives must

For Debutaunts, music is its main

with perfection in mind.
"Many bands just have music
as a hobby, and the ones who take
music seriously often don't have the
drive and determination to pursue
a major label," Creacy said. "We've
always been the kind of band that
is perfectionist about what we do,
which sets us aside."
The hard work paid off with the
success of its concert Friday.

"Now we are at a place where we
can accomplish what we want with
the people we have and the way we
perform," Creacy said. "We are not
missing any elements."
90 minutes, one joke
"Mr. Woodcock" is a textbook
example of the preview showing all
the funny parts of a movie. After an
hour and a half, I can safely say there
was only one scene not revealed in
the previews worthy of a laugh.
That's it. Only one. The rest of the
film plods along with little enthusi-
asm and even fewer laughs.
"Mr. Woodcock" is the kind
of movie that was written on the
back of a bar napkin during a high
school reunion. It feeds the desire
to "get back" at previous authority
figures who have wronged us in the
past. The story is about John Farley
(played by Seann William Scott, or as
he's know to our generation, Stifler
from "American Pie"), a successful
self-help writer who is invited to
receive an award in his hometown.
When he gets back, he discovers

of this pointless movie was the love
interest, Tracy, played by Melissa
Sagemiller. Why is she even in this
movie? She adds no depth to the
primary characters, no development
to the plot and, the worst sin of all,
no comedy to a comedy.
If, at the end of the day, you're
looking for a bland, uninteresting,
uninspired movie about getting

and play music with his friends.
"I created the name to criticize
digital formats and how far people
will go to computerize the world to
make nature digital," he said.
The band normally plays shows
in Gainesville, but it has played a
few acoustic sets in South Florida,
where a majority of its members
They released their first album in
April, titled "All I See is Numbers,"
on. School Glue Records, a record
label Pishko runs out of his house.
Another musician who was
friends with the band created the
name and it stuck, Pishko said.
"The label is a collective of peo-
ple who are traded off musically be-
tween the different bands," he said.
His house, dubbed "the Manor"
by local musicians who have come
and gone over the years, is a com-
mon practice space and where most
of the recording takes place.
"Everybody here is just very ac-
tive in playing music on their own
time and with other bands," Pishko
said. "The music won't end because
we are all kind of part of this col-
School Glue Records is com-
posed of seven bands: five local
bands, a band from Boston and a
band from Ormond Beach.
The label is a side project for
Pishko while he completes his
Ph.D. in mechanical engineering
"It is pretty much about friends
at this time in our lives doing
something that we love together,"

Forget self-control; get a DCB
CEDRIC HARRIS I
CONTRIBUTING SEX COLUMNIST
Most nights I go out, I need a DCB.
A DCB, or a "designated cock blocker," is
someone who keeps an eye on people like me
who sometimes wake up in the morning hoping
they didn't hook up with that random, sort-of-
sketchy, somewhat homely person from the bar
last night, only to roll over and find said person.
0 For example, one morning after too many
Southern Comfort and limes, I awoke with a sore
head, an odd cut on my leg and a weird lump in
the bed next to me. I ran to the living room and
scanned for my roommates to make sure there
wouldn't be any witnesses.
I rushed to awaken the lump and used some
lame excuse for an immediate evacuation. As I
shoved the lump through the door, lo and be-
hold, -my roommate was standing right in the
kitchen. Her expression was confused at first,
but she 'slowly gave me the sliest of smiles. At
that moment, I knew I'd become a punch line for
the next month.
The solution to such a predicament is easy:
prevention. We learned this concept in eighth-
grade health class through contraception and
proper hand-washing techniques, but they forgot
the important suggestion of a DCB.
Like a designated driver, the DCB is ap-
pointed at the beginning of the night. Unlike the
designated driver, the DCB can still drink.
A drunken DCB might even be better at his
job because drunks are usually blunt and can
definitely end a mood.
Don't pick just anyone for this esteemed posi-
tion, though. Your average cock block won't do
- their unintentional cock blocking skills can't
All your friend has to do is make sure you
don't let just anyone in your pants including
the ex you call after too much tequila.
As a result, although you may not feel like a
million bucks in the morning, at least you don't
have to worry about having an unwelcome guest
next to you.
The next time you're preparing for a forgetful
night out, don't bother with chastity belts or self-
control. Rely on a DCB to ensure you have all the
fun without ary unwanted lumps in the bed.

New Foos shows

reconvene with "Colour"
producer Gil Norton. The
result isn't- quite- another
classic, but 'Echoes Silence,

ing Tuesday, will satisfy Foo
Lead man Dave Grohl
isn't usually one to experi-
ment, but "Echoes" manages
to blend the Foos' typical

impressive guitar playing.
Songs span a wide range of
styles, including bluegrass
instrumental jams, cello-and-
guitar-driven ballads and

"Echoes, Silence, Patience

its highlights, but the Foo
Fighters continues its strug-
gle to make an album as
timeless and memorable as
its decade-old classic.

Jackson may not start
By BRYAN JONES
Alligator Staff Writer
UF free safety Kyle Jackson may
have lost his starting spot.
After pulling Jackson during the
first half of the Tennessee game last
week, UF coach Urban Meyer said
Wednesday that he will make a game-
time decision whether to start Jackson
or freshman Major Wright against
Mississippi on Saturday.
"They're both going with the [first
team] right now," Meyer said.
Meyer spoke with Jackson on the
phone Sunday night to voice his sup-
port for the safety despite his strug-
Jackson told Meyer that he is too
invested to give up.
"I just need to make that extra step
on a tackle," Jackson said. "This week
I'll be out there doing extra tackling
and bringing that extra step. I've been
playing football for too long, and I
know I've got it."
INJURY UPDATE: Meyer said wide re-
ceiver Riley Cooper is probable for
Saturday while offensive lineman
Maurkice Pouncey will be a game-time
decision. Both suffered sprained ankles
"Riley (was) gimping around a little
bit today, but we expect him to go,"
Meyer said. "Maurkice is a game-time
decision, I'm told, and I'm hoping it's
going to work out."
"I just need to make that extra
step on a tackle."
UF free safety
If Pouncey is unable to play, Maurice
Hurt is expected to take his spot in the
If Cooper can't play, David Nelson
could see more field time.
Meyer said he has been extremely
impressed with Nelson, particularly
as a blocker.
"He just practiced his tail off,"
Meyer said. "Instead of worrying
about things, he's just going out and
going as hard as he can."

Gators could face former Vols' QB Schaeffer
FOOTBALL from page 23
what we're doing we go over our checks," Wallace said.
"He gives mq a look and a signal, and I go with it. He's always
making the right call."
Though Adams said it is the type of injury he will have
to force himself to play through, his potential replacement is
a familiar face for the Gators. The Rebels' backup is former
Tennessee quarterback Brent Schaeffer.
Schaeffer was a highly regarded recruit coming into
Knoxville, but he lost playing time to the Volunteers' current
starter, Erik Ainge, decided to transfer and eventually landed
Though Schaeffer has had a less-than notable career with
the Rebels, Orgeron said Schaeffer's attitude has improved,
and he is doing better academically.
But it's going to take a lot more than just a quarterback to
pull the upset against No. 3 UF (3-0,1-0 SEC) on Saturday.
Running back Benjarvus Green-Ellis is the workhorse for
