his life was totally in danger.
True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
I remember this. The officers asked the protesters politely about 50 times to move out of the public walkway and told them another 50 times if they didn’t move they’d have to use force and warned them endlessly about the pepper spray. The end result was what was posted and spread everywhere, making the officer, who was doing his job correctly, look like a monster. This website is full of anti-police propaganda and it’s getting obnoxious.
How are you not seeing that as a clear attack on one’s right to assemble… he was not doing his job correctly because he was explicitly instructed not to use force. What about this post in any way is “anti-police propaganda” because all I am seeing is a clear presentation of facts and an accompanying video of the act?
