(SacBee)   The U.C. Davis cop involved in the famous pepper-spray incident has filed a workers comp claim for "psychiatric injury" he got from pepper-spraying the student protesters. It's a sad story, a real tear-jerker   (sacbee.com) divider line 149

Perhaps everything would be OK if the students would just apologize to the guy for all the horrible pain they caused him. Sort of like how the guy that Dick Cheney shot in the face apologized to Cheney.

I'm guessing he's not suing over the stress of macing innocent kids, but the stress of being stalked, threatened and harassed by people after he took that (inappropriate) action during the regular course of performing his duties. I'd be curious to see what sort of indemnification clause his employment agreement had, if any.

A river.  Cry me it.

I think (educated guess based on my dealings w/workman's comp), that if you do something either illegal/against employer rules and regs WC will deny the claim-unless you can prove the employer specifically told you to do it (good luck trying to get the school to say they did...and most universities have large legal staffs).

Being he was fired for his actions, I would think he met one of those conditions.

I see a great future for him as a mall cop...if he can get one to hire him (I'm guessing he can't get hired anywhere, which is why he's trying to get comp).

If Dick Cheney shot me in the face, I'd apologize too. I wouldn't want him to pull out my still-beating heart and show it to me, or use force-lightning on me. If you get injured by an eldritch evil, you are thankful you're  uninjured enough to still have thoughts.

I don't doubt he has a psychiatric disability but I would assume it was pre-existing.
How about we regress somewhat and treat this case in a similar way to how we would've treated witchcraft cases a while back?
So, impale this fat idiot on a 12ft sharpened bamboo pole, straight through his anus and out through his mouth. If he lives he's fine and gets no compensation for his frivolous claim, if he dies he will be deemed unfit for work and thus get full compensation*.

Well, that was unduly snarky. What you described is fairly well what's implied by TFA. I apologize. ("I'll bet" and "I'm guessing" are so often followed by total conjecture they trip my radar.)

In other news, there a support group forming for (former) officer Pike!

No shiat. My favorite tool for hacking is this awesome book that apparently other hackers leave on my doorstep. It says White Pages on the cover implying that it should only be used for good.

Little do they know, man.

If drone pilots can suffer PTSD blowing up targets in a room thousands of miles away from danger, then surely we can accept a police officer so wracked with guilt that he suffers in the same way, having perpetrated his actions directly on his targets and seeing them writhe and suffer in front of him.

I don't recall ever being unreasonable to debate. The above was simply snark. I rather Cheney not shoot me in the face, and I would be unhappy if he did.

Police and firefighters pull this shiat all the time, the only reason he might not get it is because the public knows who he is. Normally it'd be rubber stamped and he'd be on his way to thousands of dollars a month for the rest of his life for doing nothing.
