Annette Spicuzza Resigns for Occupy UC Davis Pepper Spray Attack

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Annette Spicuzza, the UC Davis Police Chief in charge of Lt John Pike during the pepper spray attack against Occupy UC Davis 2011, has resigned. Annette Spicuzza has been under fire since November of 2011 for the Pike attack. After that encounter, University officials simply put her on (paid) administrative leave. Today she resigned, applauding her own service during that period.

In 2011, critics contended that the UC Davis administration has not swiftly responded to the matter. The University of California Faculty Association denounced the attack. In a statement in November 2011, it said “we have seen excessive force used against non-violent protesters at UC Berkeley, UCLA, CSU Long Beach, and UC Davis… We demand that the Chancellors of the University of California cease using police violence to repress non-violent political protests.”

Finally today, Spicuzza resigned. In a news statement, she talked about all her purported achievements during her tenure.

She told news “My 27 years in law enforcement have been dedicated to the ethical and committed service to the departments and communities I have been proud to be a part of.” She added “For the past seven years, I have accomplished many good things for both the Police Department and community here at UC Davis; and am grateful to those of you who have remembered this.”

She contended that she needed to resign to start a “healing process”. “As the university does not want this incident to be its defining moment, nor do I wish for it to be mine. I believe in order to start the healing process, this chapter of my life must be closed.”

Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, denounced the attack in November. Steinberg said “On its face, this is an outrageous action for police to methodically pepper spray passive demonstrators who were exercising their right to peacefully protest at UC Davis”.
