    THAT is what puts more trust into the police force.

    Of course, but these stories get little to no coverage, except for maybe with the local news. Yet, these things happen daily across the nation. These are the types of acts that are the majority.

    Its unnecessary, poor and showy tactic on the part of the police. It immunizes against aggression (instead of terrorizing the populace which is its intent). What I find particularly outragous is that the executive, the judiciary and the legislative (who not only the ultimate supervisors of these cops but are also deemed the voice of the people) allow these thug cops to get away with these crimes. Whenever I see this I suspect that its a precursor to a revolution. Lets hope so
    I redact everything I have written or will write on this forum prior to, subsequent with and or after the fact of its writing. For entertainment purposes only and not to be taken seriously nor literally.

    Not nearly enough students are pepper sprayed, really.
    A criticism that can be brought against everything ought not to be brought against anything.

    There is an obvious disconnect with the system and its students that is fostering this issue to happen time and time again.

    UC Davis Students Reach $1 Million Settlement with University Over Pepper-Spraying Incident

    Remember that video that went all over youtube and all over the world of students getting pepper-sprayed? Well, they are getting their dues for what occurred on the campus.

    For all the troubles, each of the 21 students who got pepper-sprayed are getting $30,000 (the number I am currently seeing that is floating around.)
