They were asking for it...

All I see are a bunch of whiny students. Typical hippies...
 Quoting: AlcoholicRunner




Also, they did it deliberately - they KNEW what was coming. You can hear someone yelling "Take out your contacts" a good 30 seconds before the spraying happens. Additionally, notice how they don't aid the "screaming" people UNTIL someone with a News camera is all in the best position to film it. It was all CAREFULLY crafted to elicit sympathy for the "poor, peaceful students" versus the evil, power-drunk police. If I were a police-person, I certainly might have had some moments of concern and felt woefully understaffed, when the whole crowd began screaming at me!

What did she do? All I've heard about UC Davis is some students got pepper sprayed by cops.
 Quoting: BOSS OF ALL BOSSES



She OK'd the police to remove the protesters despite the unobtrusive, nonviolent nature of the protest.

Now, let me quickly describe the layout of the quad. The quad is constructed such that it is surrounded by pedestrian paths with a pedestrian path running through the middle. It's a small quad- you an walk across it in only about 1-3 minutes depending on your pace.


For the protest itself, no roads were blocked as the protesters camped in the middle of the quad. The encampment was small enough such that it did not cause any inconvenience to those crossing the quad through the middle- walking around the camp was trivial. The tiny camp they had set up was clean, so they weren't a public hazard either. They were making noise, but not enough to reach any of the lecture halls. Their only offense: camping there overnight. They were not informed the following day that their encampment was illegal by UC Davis rules.

You asked why people are angry at the chancellor. To elaborate on what I said earlier, people are outraged at how the chancellor ordered the removal of these peaceful, unobtrusive protesters on what is essentially a technicality, and how the removal resulted in our peers being injured. It's insulting. It shows what the chancellor thinks of us, the students.

Lastly, it is her duty to appropriately respond to the incident as well as use her power to protect the students' rights. She has failed at both of these duties.

Hahah. I am one of the students you are trying to represent. Hmmm. Where is your argument now? I will gladly work three jobs if it means making me a better person in life and being able to support a family one day or invest in a house and a college fund for my kids. I am happy I have to work. I look at my friends who are getting a free ride from their parents and they are on the beach every day not studying, having a different kind of fun. Don't get me wrong, it would be great to not have college loans, but I appreciate the value of my hard work. I expect it to be tough and maybe I will be "a slave" for a while. Terrible word to use by the way. You should be ashamed for saying it. But to get back to my point, hard work will pay off eventually. No work will never pay off. Enjoy the struggle my smelly friends.

Thank you! I was hoping somebody else understood what this is about. what was it 9% this year - about the same last year and the before and the year before - meanwhile less and less classes offered so people can't get into the classes they need for their degrees. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be to try and get a degree these days and I thought it was hard 20 years ago - these kids are dealing with a lot different environment and unfortunately in my opinion probably most won't be able to get jobs that utilize their education unless something in our country changes.

The video haunts me - it was absolutely horrible to watch and at the end of the video when Mr Riot Cop was shaking his cans of pepper spray again I nearly cried for those kids - I was overcome by anger at how these police in riot gear acted towards a row of kids sitting down - UNBELIEVABLE! But I did find it interesting how the riot police had to back off the campus in a pack because they were afraid - I think in their heart of hearts they knew what they did was unacceptable and WRONG. Why do they think they had the right to physically attack these kids? What is going on in our country???? If they were going to arrest them, then arrest them - why the need for pepper spray - which I mistakenly believed was supposed to be used for defense only - my mistake.....

As pointed out, they are calling for her resignation because she called the authorities, then did nothing to try and stop the abuse.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1146136




Once you "call the authorities" to solve a problem and they arrive, the ball is sort of in THEIR court as to how they handle a situation or what results from their being on scene. In other words, once they arrived she had no more authority in their estimation than any of the other "protesters".

Here in Portland Oregon (and I'm sure that we are not alone here) we have seen this happen occasionally when someone calls the police because a family member is misbehaving in such a way that the family member (wife, parent) cannot control or "talk them down" (drugs, alcohol, etc.) Sometimes those people are badly hurt or even killed by the police when they refuse to obey orders to stop whatever it is that they are doing.

Very sad, but can one expect any different result when children have not been raised to respect/obey a lawful Police (or parental) order? When they have been told all their lives that they are so "special" that they need not suffer any consequences from their chosen transgressions? When they have never been made to wait for fullfillment of their every desire but instantly presented with whatever they want without regard for the financial or emotional cost to those around them?

Let me remind you that Chancellors DO NOT operate in a solitary universe! There are LAYERS of people to whom THEY are responsible and must answer to for their actions and decisions. Under the circumstances I'd say that she made the most logical and appropriate decision, and any responsibility for injuries etc. must rest with the "protesters" who no doubt made the decision to escalate the situation. Hopefully they will have learned their lesson, albeit the hard way.

Better yet, maybe they'll just decide to go home and end all of this nonsense.
 Quoting: Eggcellent


I hope the military reads this, the military man is responsible for the torchure not the generals or those that ordered it. Waterboarding is torchure and the higher ups should not be held accountable, the soldier on the street is the cause of the issue. He is the one that should be held accountable, their accountablity stops when they turn it over to you... YOU ARE THE SCAPEGOAT, YOU GO TO THE HAGUE, YOU ARE THE ONE RESPONSIBLE...god bless, you pour soul.
