Update: Park Police Tasered activist in March 29 arrest at White House antinuclear vigil

While covering the immigration rights march on 4-25 I was told an ugly piece of news: the US Park Police have returned to their old habit of using Tasers against activists believed to be associated with Occupy. When Barry Knight was confronted by US Park Police on March 29 for "having too many signs" as part of an apparent police attempt to drive off the White House peace vigil, the US Park Police shocked him with a Taser, a potentially lethal weapon, then arrested him.

It is unknown whether the Park Police are attempting to dislodge the entire vigil, or just force Occupy activists to stop supporting the vigil and providing relief coverage for Concepcion, who is over 80 years old.
