The University of Florida can’t get Tim Tebow back into the headlines soon enough. That First Amendment fiasco over the tasered student at the John Kerry lecture was a national embarrassment.

UF’s campus police need to be trained to not handle a YouTube-yahoo provocateur as if he were a Danny Rolling clone. Arrest and get physical with the student who overstayed his time limit if he were threatening someone or inciting insurrection. Video indicated he didn’t incite much more than eye-rolling from a few fellow students and a nonplussed reaction from Kerry.

Open discourse is often far from a seamless exchange on a college campus.

Being an annoying, self-promoting prankster is still shy of a taser-able act.
