Memorial held for student
By KIM WILMATH
When Backinathan Aruldas arrived in America
after a tear-filled, two-day flight from Chennai,
India, he went straight to Shands at UF.
His son, Michael Backinathan, an international
UF graduate student who suffered brain damage
after nearly drowning, was kept alive at Shands
by artificial ventilating machines for more than

"My son is no more," Aruldas said. "This was
planned by God. I ought to accept it. My son's de-
parted soul will be resting."
Aruldas said he last spoke to his son Sept. 8.
He said Backinathan told him he was going
swimming and would talk to him later. Then
Backinathan hung up for the last time.

in Taser case
By HILARY LEHMAN
Although the Tasering of Andrew Meyer, a UF
telecommunication senior, has been scrutinized
from every camera angle, the legal implications of
the situation remain cloudy.
The Sept. 17 Tasering incident at a speech
by Sen. John Kerry hosted by Accent, Student
Government's speakers bureau, has sparked na-
tionwide debate over First Amendment rights and
boundaries of police action.
Meyer was arrested and Tasered by University
Police Department officers after
asking Kerry several questions
and refusing to give up the

decrying the use of police force
e in the incident.
Meyer "People have a reasonable
expectation to ask questions in a public setting
- even if they are aggressive and some disagree
with their position that is free speech plain and
simple," said Howard Simon, ACLU of Florida
executive director, in the release.
Whether Meyer would have a valid court case
on First Amendment grounds is a matter of debate
Tom Julin, a Miami attorney who specializes
in First Amendment practice, said Meyer would
have an uphill battle to prove UPD officers violat-
ed his rights. Julin is a former Alligator editor who
said he has also represented the newspaper.
The main issue would be whether police action
was prompted by the content of what Meyer was
saying at the time, Julin said.
"Most courts are not going to want to second-
guess the actions of the police officers unless it is
very dear that the police were doing something
to suppress the content of the speech rather than
directed at the conduct of the speaker," he said.
If there were a court case, the police officers
would not have to prove that they took the best
possible course of action, said Tom Poulton, a
Winter Park attorney who deals with cases against
law enforcement for excessive use of force and

GPD officers to receive Tasers
By APRIL DUDASH
Tasers are going to be the new-
est addition to the Gainesville
Police Department's arsenal.
GPD spokesman Lt. Keith
Kameg said the police depart-
ment will receive about 36 Tasers
Every police officer will go
through Taser training, and those
selected to carry a Taser will go
through additional training, he
GPD is writing a departmental
use-of-force policy that deals with
Tasers, Kameg said.
GPD will join several other local
law enforcement agencies that use
Tasers, which include the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office and the
University Police Department.
The sheriff's office started using
Tasers about five to six years ago.
ASO spokesman Keith Faulk
said-every sworn law enforcement
deputy is issued a Taser and goes
through one day of eight-hour
The officers must have an an-
nual recertification, which involves
a written test and redeployment of
the Taser, he said.
Tasers are only used when
people are actively resisting arrest,
"Think of Batman and his
utility belt. He has all his
tools, and law enforce-
ment has all their tools."
"Think of Batman and his util-
ity belt," he said. "He has all his

When people are told to put
their hands behind their back, 90
percent obey, 5 percent run and
the other 5 percent actively resist,
"Those are the ones we engage
in physical confrontations," he
Faulk said he's carried a Taser
for about five or six years. He's
never had to use it.
The sheriff's office has used
Tasers 79 times in 2006, according
to a report.
This made up 15 percent of the
535 incidents in 2006 when officers
decided to use force, the report
Tasers are much safer than
batons, which can break bones, or
pepper sprays, Faulk said.
"There have been instances
when we've attempted to break
up fights in a gym, and 15 people
were contaminated when we were
trying to spray two," he said.
Faulk said the M26, which is
the first Taser the officers used, is
about the size of a handgun.
The sheriff's office has started
to phase in the X26, which is about
the size of a person's palm.
"If someone is physically resist-
ing, the Taser reduces the chance
of injury by a minimum of 50 per-
cent," he said.

Senate resolution supports UF sustainability efforts
By DEVIN CULCLASURE
UF's Student Senate shifted its focus
.from politics to the environment at its
Tuesday night meeting.
Senators heard a report from Dedee
DeLongpre, director of the UF Office of
Sustainability, and passed a resolution ex-
pressing their appreciation of sustainability
efforts at UF.
DeLongpre said UF and Americans in
general need to "shift 'their fundamental

focus on economic gains with a focus on
"The environment's like this little fuzzy
bunny that's cute, and we try to pay atten-
tion if we have time," she said. "We as a
human species get to survive because of the
ecosystem services we rely on for life."

long-term goals to make the campus more

minum and glass last season, she said.
That mark is already being surpassed

The bulk of environmental responsibil-
ity rests in the hands of students and young
people, she added.

"The question is going to be whether
it was done reasonably, considering the
circumstances," Poulton said.
To have a valid First Amendment case,
Julin said Meyer would have to prove that
police reacted against what he was saying
rather than how he was acting.
"He would have to show ... that he

that he was following all the rules and that
he was not violating anyone

News As for the ability of
Accent to impose rules on
an event, the -legal lines are
dearly defined, he said. Prior to the event,
Accent could have imposed any rules not
related to the content of the speech with-
out infringing on First Amendment rights
of audience members or speakers.
"They could say, 'We'll only allow 100
people to attend,'" Julin said. "But they
can't impose rules to the content of the
speech, like, 'Only Democrats can ask
John Kerry questions."'
Taking action against any person in
violation of those rules would not be
censorship, Julin added. The use of police
force, if used simply to maintain order,
could even be seen as protecting' First
"The maintenance of order obviously
protects the right of John Kerry to speak
and protects the rights of the students to
hear what the speaker has to say," Julin
The amount of attention the Tasering
brought to the situation is something to
learn from, he said.
"This might be a good lesson for the

more controversy to the situation," Julin

Charges won't let Meyer
forget his past
Looks like someone is up a creek without a paddle or
a good lawsuit.
Andrew Meyer, the UF senior who was Tasered last
week, probably doesn't have a winnable First- Amendment
case. In order for him to have a good lawsuit, he would have
to prove that he was arrested for what he was saying.
But YouTube videos don't lie, and it's dear to us that Meyer
was arrested for the way he acted. Just like a football game

is indisputable, a judge will do the same thing in Meyer's
Accent, Student Government's speakers bureau, which
hosted Sen. John Kerry's speech, is legally allowed to set
any rules it wishes except about the content of the speech
- without violating First Amendment rights. Meyer skipped
someone in line and asked his question even though the des-
ignated question-and-answer session had ended, so it's safe
to say beyond a reasonable doubt that he broke those
This does not bode well for Meyer, who faces a third-de-
gree felony charge for resisting arrest with violence.
Even the shortest 15 minutes of fame comes with a price
tag. This could haunt Meyer for years to come. He may have
trouble finding a job or getting a loan from a bank both of
which he might need if he loses this lawsuit and has to pay
hefty lawyer fees. Not to mention the embarrassment he
brought upon himself and UF.
Publicity was probably just what someone who refers to
himself on his Web site as "The Andrew Meyer" wanted, but
we bet he didn't want the bad news that came with it.
Now Meyer has to deal with a lifetime of consequences
- all because he needed two minutes to ask Kerry his ques-
tions and two more to cause a scene.
It's Taser Time
In honor of the Gainesville
Police Department get-
ting its first Taser guns
next month, we'd like to say
congratulations for joining
GPD joins the ranks of
Alachua County Sheriff's
Office and the University
Police Department. The
sheriff's office has had
Tasers for a few years, and
UPD has had them since at
least Sept. 17.
Even though Tasers have
gotten a bad rap recently,
they are actually one of the
most effective compliance
Instead of spraying a
cloud of pepper spray into a
crowd causing dozens of
eyes to water or beating
people with batons caus-
ing bones to break Tasers
can be localized to a specific
point, reducing injury and
allowing police to take con-
trol of a wily situation.
Now GPD will have the
means to Taser the drunken
downtown partiers who
slap police horses.
Officers could Taser
open-container law viola-
We're kidding, of course.
After UPD's "Tasergate"
last week, we're sure GPD
will use its Tasers only
'when absolutely necessary,
and officers who will carry
Tasers will go through rig-
But we're glad the offi-
cers will have this .effective
tool available to them.
A shot from a Taser gun
is better than a shot from a

SG voter apathy hi
The Gator Party's domination of Student Senate
seats made me wonder about the 2008 national
What was the cause of yet another political landslide:
a silent majority failing to vote, or the collective approval
of students across the land?
In the 2004 presidential election, people age 18 to 24
had the lowest registration rate of all adults allowed to
vote, a mere 58 percent.
Even more shocking, fewer than half of all registered
students showed up to vote. The oldest voters had the
highest turnout and voting rates. But if one vote does not
make or break an election, why visit the polls?
Many college students are the children of baby boom-
ers, those aged 43 to 61. The more we grow up, the more
our voices make an impact on national politics.
A smaller group of young Republicans can make its
voice heard over young liberals merely by going .to the
polls more often.
If that becomes reality, Mitt Romney or Rudy Giuliani
might win the presidency.
If young adults want to express their voices, the sim-
plest solution is to vote. Unlike last Monday's Taser de-
bacle, this act of free speech will not get you restrained.
As it stands, a vote is an American's most basic, cher-
Consider George Orwell's book "1984," in which ex-
actly the opposite happens. In that world, no one gets a
vote; no one has any power to change the government.
The government has a vice grip on power even the
very act of thinking against Big Brother is a crime. From
birth, children are brainwashed into serving the govern-
ment. History is rewritten so often that people are fooled
nts at U.S. election
into believing whatever their su-
periors tell them.
While missing out on one vote
in one year will not lead to the
aforementioned nightmare, take
Vincent Gagliano neither the right to vote nor its
Vincent agliano significance for granted.
firstname.lastname@example.org Too many soldiers have died
in too many wars over too many
years for those who don't have to fight to waste their in-
fluence. If you want a particular candidate in office even
more, encourage others to vote in his or her direction.
You may even want to join the campaign trail to some
degree. Even if issues you feel are important aren't being
voted on, don't fret. Turlington Plaza is a "free-speech
zone" for a reason. Use whatever platform you can to
discuss issues that are important.
UF does not need to become another Berkeley, a school
famous for its fondness of protests and picket signs. In
fact, UF has a history of low-key political activism.
However, a place like this, with 50,000 voices gath-
ered, can and should cast its votes on important issues.
There are too many people with too much education not
to make speaking out a priority.
President Bush will leave office in fewer than 18
months. If you want to express your like or dislike of all
the things he has done over the past six years, you have a
prime chance come November 2008..
If you don't vote, it's your loss on what matters to
you. But don't feel justified to speak out if you don't vote
and your candidate doesn't win.

column appears on Wednesdays.

Letters to the Editor
Smart students don't wear 'jorts'
As an avid jean-shorts hater, I can-
not thank you enough for Kyle Cox's
column on Tuesday, "Jean shorts hurt
Gators' credibility." Having friends
who attend the University of Georgia
and as a regular attendee of the
Florida-Georgia game in Jacksonville,
I am so sick of being ridiculed for
going to a school known for wearing
It's just downright embarrassing;
there is no valid excuse for dressing
in something that hasn't been fashion-
ably acceptable since the 1980s. I can-
not understand how such intelligent
students can be so challenged when
it comes to dressing appropriately
for football games or every day for
that matter. I have even created anti-
jean short posters for a graphic-design
project. I am seriously considering
hanging them around campus before
the game this weekend.
It is my sincere hope that someday
I will be able to attend a UF football
game without seeing a single pair of
jorts. Thank you, Mr. Cox, for your
help in the matter.
UF soldier makes students proud
I wish to express my gratitude and
appreciation to Kori Frederick and the
Alligator for the wonderful piece on
Adam Stout. Whatever your feelings
about the wars mn Iraq or Afghanistan
this piece brought the reabl-) of war-
As most of us lit Christmas trees
on fire and climbed poles on West
University Avenue, this student was
protecting our liberties and serving
his country. Such dedication is admi-
rable, and I'm proud knowing such
moral fortitude is alive within our
So thank you for a wonderful
piece, and thank you, Adam, for all
your sacrifice. I look forward to read-
ing more such stories in the future.

Coaches seek more
production from D-line
Andrew Stanhlill Alligator Staff
UF defensive end Derrick Harvey bears down on Troy quarterback Omar Haugabook during the
first quarter of the Gators' 59-31 win on Sept. 8.
By BRIAN STEELE
Alligator Staff Writer
As Mississippi quarterback Seth
Adams launched a 77-yard touchdown
bomb to receiver Mike Wallace, every-
one watched UF comer Joe Haden get
Haden said it was the worst he had
ever been beaten.
But there was a problem before that..
The Gators had no push rush.
"I'll be the first to tell you I'm
not very pleased with our pass rush at
all," UF co-defensive coordinator and
defensive line coach Greg Mattison said.
"We've got too many guys that are get-
ting blocked one-on-one. That's really got
to be more of a pride factor. That's got to
be more of an intelligence factor. When
you know it's a passing situation, there's
nobody that should ever be able to block
The Gators have stopped the run and
held Rebels All-Southeastern Conference
running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis to
just 37 yards on the ground Saturday.
But whenAdams had all day to throw,
Coach Urban Meyer said UF's secondary
was exposed. The Gators have just seven
sacks on the year, and only one from the
interior of the defensive line (freshman
"If we're playing good against the
run, that's great, but if a team can throw
for 300 yards, that's partially on the de-
fensive line," tackle Clint McMillan said.
"Bottom line, you can always say this and
that, but we've just got to get more pres-
sure. Definitely we could have helped out
the secondary a lot [more], we could have
gotten some more pressure."
"Bottom line, you can always
say this and that, but we've
just got to get more pressure."
Ends Derrick Harvey and Jermaine
Cunningham have combined for five
sacks, but there has been almost no inte-
rior pressure. While McMillan and Javier
Estopinan are on the lighter side for tack-
les, Mattison said they can get over that

to outweigh somebody that's in front of

technique," Mattison said. "I don't know

Gators to face more sleepless nights on the road
By EVAN DREXLER
Five minutes after defeating LSU on
Sunday afternoon, the UF volleyball team had
a flight to catch. -
There was no time for postgame stretching,
no time for showering and no time for chang-
ing into street clothes.
"That was a little insane," senior outside
hitter Marcie Hampton' said. "We couldn't
even change out of our stuff. We were chang-
ing on the bus and packing up stuff on the bus
because our flight I think was at like 4:30 and
the match went a little long.
"So it was literally, get off the court and run
out to the bus."
All that to catch a flight from Baton Rouge,
La., to Memphis, Tenn., and then another flight
from Memphis to Orlando.
The traveling didn't stop there.
The Gators had a bus trip back to
Gainesville, only to arrive in the wee hours of
The No. 6 Gators are in for more sleep-de-
prived nights as they head west for two more
conference road games this weekend.
Some of the players see the flights and
rides as a chance to sleep or listen to music,
but many of them engage in more scholarly
Since they miss Thursday and Friday class-
es when they have road trips, many use the
travel time to catch up on homework.
"Obviously if it's a long weekend road trip,
we try to get some homework breaks in there,"
senior setter Angie McGinnis said.
The coaches also spend time on planes
doing their own homework: watching video
' of the Gators' previous matches and scouting
"Technology has allowed us to do a lot of
work," UF coach Mary Wise said. "We put in a
DVD on the bus ride back, and all three of us
coaches have portable DVD players."
Because Southeastern Conference schools
are typically in cities without major interna-
tional airports, there is added mystery and
delays to the travel schedule.
"To get from Oxford, Mississippi, to any-
where is a little bit difficult," Wise said.
The team's flights are regularly re-routed
and delayed, especially once they get to the
hub of the SEC Atlanta.
"We get -delayed all the time because
we have to fly through Atlanta sp much,"
Hampton said. "We spend a lot of time in
Hampton crossed her index and middle fin-
gers,, adding that she and Hartsfield-Jackson
Atlanta International Airport are "like this."
Even the season's opening road trip, where
UF visited Illinois State and Notre Dame on
.Aug. 24-26, forced the team to spend extra
time in Macon,; Ga., aftei it couldn't land in
"Obviously if it's a long weekend
road trip, we try to get some home-
work breaks in there."
"It's kind of like a joke," McGinnis said.
"You have to expect that we get back at 2, 3 in
the morning every morning because most of
the time we're delayed through Atlanta."
This weekend, UF heads to Starkville,
Miss., and Tuscaloosa, Ala., for another Friday-
Sunday SEC series.
UF, South Carolina and Arkansas (twice)
are the only SEC schools to play four straight
matches on the road on back-to-back week-
ends. Mississippi State and South Carolina
also play a Wednesday and Sunday match one
week, followed by two weekend matches the
"If we could just figure out a way to get the
schedule so you wouldn't have to (play away)
two weekends in a row; I think that's a little
unfair," Wise said. "But, it is what it is, just roll
out the ball and play."
It will be another turbulent weekend for UF,
but the team will make it through all right, just
as long as the players -remember to take their
belongings off the buses with them.
"We're forever leaving cell phones on the
bus and having to run back to the bus and grab
it," Hampton said. "Amber (McCray) does it
all the time actually."

Carlson reportedly asked Gundy to
clarify just what was factually inac-

to the question.

It's well known that major college
athletics have similar scrutiny to pro-
fessional leagues. That comes with
the territory for coaches and players.
If Tim Tebow costs the Gators a
game, then stories will fault him for
that. Chris Hetland got the same
treatment last year.

ers on winning teams who perform
well. Scholarships, tutors, meals
