Posted on 11/19/2011 8:29:28 AM PST by Kevin in California
University police tore down tents at UC Davis yesterday afternoon, arresting 8 students in the process, Xeni Jardin of Boing Boing reports. At one point, to clear a path to reach students that they had already arrested, they pepper-sprayed a line of seated, quiet protesters. This video, which shows the pepper-spraying, is going viral. This comment, from venture capitalist Chris Sacca, sums up what lots of people who watch it are thinking: Seriously. Right now. Stop what you are doing, watch this video, and reflect on what it means to be American.

Memo to hippies and other Occutards: Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Gimmie-Pigs demanding free tuition for “Liberal Arts majors.
Let them ask StarBucks to pay for their education.
‘Cause that’s the only place where many will be able to find a job.
The Current FReepathon Pays For The Current Quarters Expenses?
My local news here (an NBC affiliate) called the video disturbing.
After watching it, I I found it to be quite entertaining.
I can sympathize with much of what the OWS movement is about, but as soon as they allowed themselves to be captured and led by Marxists they declared war on me and mine.
They need stronger spray. It isn’t working. These hippies will probably treat it as a badge of honor that they were pepper sprayed.
Would you find this entertaining if it was done to you?
Fair is fair.
I’m not the one you addressed your question to, but I would say, “Yes, if I were a deluded hippie, I would find this entertaining if it was done to me.” The is what deluded hippie like. It must be. After all they know it’s going to happen and they do everything they can to encourage it. Thus, they must want it, and if they want it, they must like it.
It appears they were given fair warning, and they chose to disobey. Actions have consequences.
Took the words right out of my mouth.
IMHO - its union thug cops like this who embolden these movements by this garbage.
I don’t agree with OWS one bit - but this cop makes me sick as do most.
Like someone mentioned in this thread, “play stuipid games, win stupid prizes!”
That sounds about right to me.
Sad, very sad. Laugh all you want, but remember - when the Tea Party gets sprayed like this, you wont be laughing as much.
Amazing how FR closes ranks to support the police state and union thugs when they are giving a beating to people we ourselves don’t like.
Sure its easy to laugh at these hippies who are mostly naive morons, but if you think clapping while the police state grows and gets more brazen is a good thing - sad very sad.
Hey - since the spray is not strong enough - why not just machine gun them down for sitting on the floor at the campus THEY ARE PAYING TUITION TO ATTEND!!!
As far as I am concerned, the kids who pay tuition at the school should tell the cops to F off and get off the property.
Really? You find that funny? Sick.
He should’ve used a flame thrower.
Well: That’s a little too strong, but honestly, if you are told to move and you don’t— Pepper spray is actually tame. The use of batons and truncheons would have bee much worse.
Arrests would have been nice if they would get 30 days at hard labor and tossed out of whatever college they attaned.
Why? If they are paying tution to attend the school, you don’t think there is a better way to handle this than this police state garbage that will be used on when we protest obama next time.
Remember - these union thugs are not your friend. When we hopefully get out in force next year to protest obama - this same bs will happen to us, remember tht.
