<p>A man was <a href="http://moonbattracker.com/wordpress/?p=4892">tasered after a confrontation</a> with police at the Occupy DC encampment. </p><p>The <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/crime-scene/post/one-protester-tase… Post reported</a>:</p><blockquote><p>"Tensions between <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/occupy-dc-contemplates-mcpherson-de…; target="_blank">Occupy DC</a>
protesters and law enforcement increased Sunday afternoon with the
arrest of a demonstrator and the steady approach of Monday’s noon
deadline to enforce a ban on overnight camping.</p>
<p>Tempers flared around midday after police subdued a protester in
McPherson Square with an electric shock. Several protesters accused the
police of using excessive force, saying the demonstrator had been
handcuffed by two police officers before a third used the electronic
device to stun him.</p>
<p><a name="pagebreak"></a>Police on scene confirmed that a person had been subdued with a Taser and arrested but gave no further details.</p>
<p>The encounter occurred as <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/occupy-dc-protesters-who-camp-illeg…; target="_blank">Park Police</a> passed out flyers warning of the deadline to begin <a href="http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/occupy-dc-must-stop-camping-overnig…; target="_blank">enforcing a longstanding ban</a>
on camping overnight in the square and Freedom Plaza. A protester, who
is known as “Lash,” became angry when police entered his tent, other
demonstrators said.</p>
<p>“He told them: ‘Get out of here, get out of my tent. You’ve already
given us enough of these,’” said Tracy Keith, 49, a researcher from
Raleigh, N.C. who has been in the square for months. Keith said the
protester ripped up the flyer and followed the police around the
encampment tearing down other flyers as the confrontation escalated."</p></blockquote>
