lordjupiter: Ok, so let me get it straight...there's NOTHING wrong with the system or the government and these smelly hippies need to shut up (to hell with their rights under the 1st Amendment) and just DO WHAT THE GOVERNMENT/COPS SAY ... but the government is also oppressive and can't be trusted because they'll send the police and military after us any day now, so Tea Partiers need unlimited guns (2nd Amendment) to protect themselves from that same government....that they also protested against....but that they support when macing hippies....but don't trust.....but that doesn't mean the hippies are right....or something.
Noah_Tall: I'm undecided. Give me unedited video of what led up to the incident and what followed and then I'll make a decision. Remember this?[www.trbimg.com image 580x326]Everything in the news was claiming that they were peaceful protesters and were only blocking the sidewalk. What actually happened and you can see it on the full length video is that the police were removing their tents and some protesters tried to stop them. Those protesters were arrested. When the cops tried to escort them away a group of protesters surrounded them completely blocking them in. They then started to chant "If you let them go we will let you leave."So I'm a bit skeptical when I hear that protesters were being completely peaceful and doing nothing that deserved pepper spraying.Short UC Davis highlightsFull 30 minute UC Davis link
douchebag/hater: Good.She got what she deserved PLUS it's gonna cost her a few bucks.And this FTFA: 'he photo became an iconic image that many will remember ''Iconic'? According to who/m? Some dipshiate reporter working the police bear?Idiot.
Raharu: kwame: Raharu: I bet that officer felt very Threatened by her.Good point. He should have just stood there and argued with her.It's not the officers job to argue or debate with her. He is there to respond with appropriate force to ensure public safety.He's also head to toe in body armor, and carrying a riot shield, and like has more physical strength due to his much higher body mass.He must have a very small dick to be so threatened by her as to pepper spray he in the face let alone directly in the mouth. The appropriate response would have been to push back harder on his shield.
Nem Wan: A court of law has a predetermined bias in favor of the law and therefore someone who disagrees with the fundamental premise that the law should be followed is not going to get a fair hearing.
