    In alot of other countries if you protest the government you get shot, run over by tanks or are drug from your home in the dead of night never to be seen again. In America you get pepper sprayed, then you get a lawyer, then you retire.

    Exactly. Why do these students think they have a right to protest?

    in alot of countries you are born with Aids, starve, have no clean water and die before your 20. So whats your point?
    Should the cops of pepper sprayed them whilst saying " you dont know how lucky your are"?

    In no country can you stop a LEO from arresting someone without punishment.

    Seriously.

    They are probably going to each get about as much money as I make in a year, just for getting pepper sprayed while acting the fool.


    You know what I've been through this year, to make my princely salary of less than per capita GDP?

    I've been...
    Attacked by dogs
    Threatened by people
    Cut by barbed wire and briars so often I hardly notice anymore.... some of the 'wire was rusty... Don't even mention workman's comp to me, I'd laugh my head off.
    Damn near got heatstroke in July.
    Damn near got hypothermia in February.
    Nearly got run over by stupid drivers more times than I can count.
    Blisters on my feet from all the walking.
    Got burned on a piece of hot machinery.
    Risked exposure to toxic chemicals at a factory.
    Worked overtime OFF the clock frequently to do 1.5 men's work without going over 40 paid hours a week, to avoid an ugly visit from Corporate about schedules.
    .... hell that ain't even the half of it.


    You could pepper spray the **** out of me for what they're getting out of this, and I'd smile all the way to the bank.

    Waffling a bit aren't you? In the thread concerning the Texas paddling pedo you claimed you don't obey any rule you don't agree with. Now from your recent statement we can assume two things.First, you agree the Texas assistant principal should be disciplined for his actions since he violated a rule and got caught. Second, you aren't nearly the bada$$ you attempted to portray yourself as before.

    Re: UC Davis in $1M Pepper Spray Settlement

    So, I watched the whole video that was posted earlier just to get all the facts for myself. I don't believed the protesters should have been pepper sprayed. What I don't get is why the other cops didn't step over the line of protesters like the first cop (who did the spraying). I can understand if the cops were getting irritated. Personally I think you are sticking your hand in a hornet's nest when you are disrespectful to the authorities (by shouting "f**k the police").

    It's college. It's the place where you learn to think for yourself and stand up for what you believe in. Apparently, it's also the place where you get pepper sprayed and paid off. It's a learning lesson for everyone involved. No one is perfect. I'd rather see people trying to make change happen instead of becoming "do as your told" drones. What they were doing was a lot better than other protests I have seen where students were setting dumpsters on fire and flipping cars over.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    First of all, the damages may be meant to be punitive to make sure the university gets the message loud and clear. Secondly, anyone who works off the clock just to satisfy a bosses unrealistic expectations is making a fool of themselves. Of course if the current GOP got their way we would all be indentured servants without any rights to protect us from abusive employers.

    Bud, an "ugly visit from Corporate" usually means people getting fired. Maybe you've noticed, jobs aren't exactly falling off trees like ripe pecans just the now.
