“Police used an electronic stun gun to subdue a Brentwood man Tuesday night at a gun control rally in Concord,” wmur.com reports. “Officers took 52-year-old Daniel Musso to the ground shortly after he interrupted a speech in favor of expanded background checks for people purchasing guns.” Unfortunately, the video [click here to view] starts after the cops were all over Musso’s ass. Anyway, Musso faces multiple charges, including simple assault of a police officer. “The confrontation started at the podium when Musso interrupted a speech by John Cantin of Manchester. Cantin, who was wounded and lost his daughter in a 2009 shooting, was speaking in favor of expanded background checks on gun sales. “Why are you shaking talking about this? You’re not the truth!” Musso said . . .
After numerous interjections, Musso decided to walk away, but Concord police had been called. When officers began talking to him, Musso initiated physical contact with police, Sexton said.
Wait. What? You call that physical contact? Check out the video. Musso places his hands gently on the officer. Still . . .
Officers struggled to subdue Musso for about a minute and a half, [Reporter Adam] Sexton said, before they had to use a stun gun on him.
Many involved in the counter protest thought Musso did nothing wrong.
The MAIG bus tour continues. With the Internet allowing instant access to the tour dates and places, Musso’s arrest could presage more of the same. Or something even more . . . newsworthy. Watch this space.
