What pisses me off is dumb cunts on the internet see a biased video prepared by the OWS hippies about the pepper spray incident at UC Davis and then they think they know every God damn thing in the world. First look at an unedited video. Occupy Davis Part 1
click part 2 aswell. This is not a peaceful protest, a peaceful protest is sitting down, with signs, supporting each other. Not chanting that gets louder and louder and attacking security and resisting arrest. Now let's take a look at the University of California student code of conduct, which all students must adhere to while they are studying at the university.
Theft of, conversion of, destruction of, or damage to any property of the University, or any property of others while on University premises, or possession of any property when the student had knowledge or reasonably should have had knowledge that it was stolen.
They pitched tents, which destroy the lawn of the university which is the property of the university. Let's continue.
Obstruction or disruption of teaching, research, administration, disciplinary procedures, or other University activities.
Can the gardeners tend to the gardens of the university while smelly hippy children are blocking access? What if there was a fire, can people be safely evacuated with such a loud and large crowd blocking access paths? Let's continue some more.
Disorderly or lewd conduct.
Loitering. Let's continue.
Participation in a disturbance of the peace or unlawful assembly.
How anyone can maintain peace there is beyond me. The "protestors" are disturbing a peaceful public place. Do the protestors have a licence to assemble on university property? I highly doubt it.
Failure to identify oneself to, or comply with the directions of, a University official or other public official acting in the performance of his or her duties while on University property or at official University functions; or resisting or obstructing such University or other public officials in the performance of or the attempt to perform their duties.
Trying to clear smelly hippy children is part of Lt. John Pike's job description. They refused clear orders, they broke the code of conduct. Let's continue some more!
Conduct, where the actor means to communicate a serious expression of intent to terrorize, or acts in reckless disregard of the risk of terrorizing, one or more University students, faculty, or staff. 'Terrorize' means to cause a reasonable person to fear bodily harm or death, perpetrated by the actor or those acting under his/her control. 'Reckless disregard' means consciously disregarding a substantial risk. This section applies without regard to whether the conduct is motivated by race, ethnicity, personal animosity, or other reasons. This section does not apply to conduct that constitutes the lawful defense of oneself, of another, or of property.
Imagine someone being confronted with this mob, it would strike fear into them. Mobs can easily turn violent and if you're not part of them you will feel terrorised whether there is intent to terrorise or not. The protestors recklessly disregarded public safety. People can trip over tent ropes, blocking access poses a fire risk.
The pepper spraying was a just act by the campus police and not one member of the police should lose their job or even see any disciplinary action against them.
