Rotten cop of the day


Boing Boing - At the University of California at Davis this afternoon, police tore down down the tents of students inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement, and arrested those who stood in their way. Others peacefully demanded that police release the arrested. In this video, you see a police officer [Update: UC Davis Police Lt. John Pike] walk down a line of those young people seated quietly on the ground in an act of nonviolent civil disobedience, and spray them all with pepper spray at very close range. He is clearing a path for fellow officers to walk through and arrest more students, but it's as if he's dousing a row of bugs with insecticide.

Public servant with no morals, he's so ignorant, he doesn't realize he's part of the 99% and soon will be a part of the rest of us standing in line for food!

There are "Police Officers." And there are "PIGS." The PIGS stand out in a crowd.

Remember, insecticide means: killing bugs.=, not just inconveniencing them...
