    UC Davis pepper-spray officer awarded $38,000 [W:25]

    UC Davis pepper-spray officer awarded $38,000 - SFGate

    okay... he got 38 k..

    but this..

    Earlier this year, UC Davis settled a federal lawsuit by paying $1 million to three dozen protesters who were pepper-sprayed.
    Thats about 28k per person if my math is right..


    So this nazi got 38k for being rightfully ridiculed for what he did, but the victims got 10k less? Is this justice?

    Godwinned the first post. Well done!

    The protesters settled a lawsuit, the police officer received workman's comp based on the law. Two entirely different things. Also dismissing prolonged and continuous harassment as being "rightfully ridiculed" is pretty vile.

    He should have been prosecuted for official oppression and assault.

    I don't think any of them should have gotten anything.

    Go hunting for the video that actually tells the whole story of what happened, including blocking the officers and preventing them from leaving the park, taunts of a personal nature and the demostrators being warned multiple times to cease and desist.

    Then you have an over view of what really happened.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    What does $28K actually do for someone that got pepper sprayed?

    Was this a game show or something? A mini-lottery?

    Pepper spray me, too, please.

    No - it's not justice because, in the end, he did nothing extremely wrong - and everyone ganged up on him like he was the worst person on the face of the earth. He quit, and people hunted him down and harassed him.

    At what point is anything fair? He can't get his job back, or reclaim his good name.

    The students - meh - no one gives a damn about the students. No one's even thought about them, or asked about them, since the bedlam died down from that event. Do you know who any of them are? Did they have to quit college and MOVE? Were they harassed relentlessly after the event?

    Nope - they went back to school, same as usual - and odds are, several have already graduated.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Say...whatever happened to all those protesting douchebags and their 'cause' anyway? That was embarrassingly short lived for such 'committed' individuals...

    His name is ****, what he did is assult and he should have been arrested and put in jail. You do not throw chemical weapons in the face of anyone.. what he did was similar to Saddam and the Kurds.. except this time around no one got killed.

    The students - meh - no one gives a damn about the students. No one's even thought about them, or asked about them, since the bedlam died down from that event. Do you know who any of them are? Did they have to quit college and MOVE? Were they harassed relentlessly after the event?
    Just one of those students is 10 times more worth than this right wing jackboot. He is a disgrace to the police and the poster boy of a police state... but I am guessing you cant see that the Kent State students also had it coming right?
