We Live In A Fascist Police State: Police Pepper Spray Seated Students (update: video)


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:

Police work well done!

Police did their job well as what the public wanted them to do – maintain order. Rebellious students barricaded the campus alley with their human body to obstruct police from going after unruly student protesters.  The police warned that they would be pepper-sprayed if they wouldn’t step aside. Instead, the protesters taunted the police – what else must the police do but pepper-spray them?


The reporter said those young trouble makers were lucky because what was sprayed on them was not a spray of bullets like what happened in “the Kent State massacre of 1970”


The cross-eyed called this necessary soft-glove police action some kind of police brutality … they believe “we live in a fascist police state”. Their anti-Government outrage is totally misplaced!


Anti-government lampooners and cop-head-hunters took this opportunity to print a distorted hostile reaction to the incident. The innuendo they are badmouthing is that we live in a fascist police state. Nothing is farther from the truth. We live in a state where the police and law enforcers are tasked to maintain peace and order! In this incident, they did well and fair play demands that those peace officers should be commended.
