Ironically, the video has attracted some criticism and some peculiar remarks. One person wrote “How are people at all shocked by this? This is type of violent, aggressive behavior is exactly how the police have always acted.”

UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi has denounced the conduct. “The use of pepper spray as shown on the video is chilling to us all and raises many questions about how best to handle situations like this.

“To this effect, I am forming a task force made of faculty, students and staff to review the events and provide to me a thorough report within 90 days. As part of this, a process will be designed that allows members of the community to express their views on this matter. This report will help inform our policies and processes within the university administration and the Police Department to help us avoid similar outcomes in the future. While the university is trying to ensure the safety and health of all members of our community, we must ensure our strategies to gain compliance are fair and reasonable and do not lead to mistreatment.

“….Through this letter, I express my sadness for the events of past Friday and my commitment to redouble our efforts to improve our campus and the environment for our students.”

    Really? She needs 90 days to figure out that this was an unwarranted use of force? Quit stalling and make a stand against police corruption. Pepper spray, by the way, has been outlawed in warfare due to its being a chemical agent. Of course, nonviolent protestors are the real enemy.
