The UC Davis Pepper Spraying Incident
Regardless of how you feel about OWS, this is just disgraceful. I can’t imagine how anyone can justify dousing these non-violent protesters with pepper spray at point blank range like this; it’s simply way over the top. But watch the whole video because it turns into a remarkable moment, as the protesters shame the police into backing down.
The police contend that they were afraid for their own safety, but a second video shows that this claim is absurd. There was absolutely no threatening behavior going on.
