One question about the Andrew Meyer incident is why were police already near him at the beginning of the videos?
The police report may provide the answer. From the officer's point of view, jackass had already disrupted the forum once and despite their attempt to remove him, pleas from Senator Kerry swayed them to let him return to the mic. And that's where all the videos begin. With Meyer ranting once again and the officers standing nearby.
From Officer Wise's report.
I noticed the ACCENT supervisor talking to the individuals left in line on the opposite side of the auditorium where I was positioned. I noticed him talking to an individual in line (later identified as Andrew Meyer). This conversation caught my eye due to the student's some what aggressive posturing towards the ACCENT supervisor. At this point I noticed the ACCENT supervisor walking halfway up the aisle on the side of the auditorium and I was signaled by the ACCENT supervisor (sponsors of the event) in reference to the individual. I was stationed at the rear corner of the auditorium during the event. When I approached the area where the microphone was placed for questions for the Senator, a young man was causing a disturbance by shouting loudly at the Senator. The individual began to shout that the Senator needed to answer his question and stated he was going to jail. These statements were made before I reached the individual in question. The individual was later identified by his Florida driver license as Andrew William Meyer. I proceeded to Meyer's location and advised him that he needed to stop yelling and causing a disturbance or he would be escorted off the property. Meyer was stating he had sat in the auditorium for two hours and demanded that he ask his question to the Senator and everyone else in the auditorium that still had questions be allowed
to speak. The sponsors of the event had advised the individuals in the question line that the Senator would not be able to answer any more questions from the audience. Because of this, the question and answer session would be over before Meyer could ask his question. Meyer would not comply with my directions or the staff from ACCENT to leave because the session was over. I grabbed Meyer's arm in the transporter position and began to escort him up the aisle. Meyer was still shouting at the Senator to answer his questions as he was being escorted. Senator Kerry asked me to let Meyer ask his question. At this point he was brought back to the microphone and I stood beside him on the left side and Ofc. Mallo on his right side. Meyer handed a camera to a girl who was also in line to ask a question (this student was actually in front of Meyer's)
And from the point of view of Sgt King who entered from the rear of the auditorium:
When I arrived upstairs, I observed Meyer being very loud and yelling while Officers Mallo and Wise were attempting to walk him out. While they were walking him out Senator Kerry asked them to allow him to ask his question. The officers allowed him to go back to the microphone.
So much for Senator Kerry not attempting to intervene. So much for the "facist", "militaristic" or whatever perjorative you prefer police attempting to prevent an innocent young man's attempt to ask a Senator tough questions.
