    I doubt 10 or however many got sprayed had asthma or all had sensitive skin...Hopefully. Or maybe that horrible cow-smell everywhere in Davis makes everyone extra sensitive.

    "Eleven people were treated on site for effects of the yellow spray. Two of them were sent to the hospital, university officials said."

    Only two went to the hospital.

    They should all be in the hospital or prison. They are violent sociopaths attacking our police officers and dismantling our society

    Watch the videos of this. The police act confused and inconsistent. They retreat and then hold positions at weird times and in general seem to have no idea what they were doing.

    Someone for whatever reason sent a group of poorly organized and poorly trained officers in to the middle of the protestors. Im guessing they were hoping to start something, hoping that once the protestors got nasty they would have an excuse to send in the big guns and crush them like ants.

    Im betting on more brutality sometime soon.

    There are videos of police interaction with Occupy students all over the internet. It's incendiary because any 30 second clip can look bad or good in any light and favor any side depending on who is taking the video. I tend to take those things with a grain of salt and try to get the real story behind those videos.

    The schools are calling the police in to handle the situation. The job of the police is to get the protestors off the property. The protestors have been asked to leave and they refused. They have been told that police will arrive and the police warn them to disperse or consequences will ensue (arrests, pepper spray).

    The police have a job to do. They cannot say, "Hey school admin, they aren't causing any trouble they are peaceful so we're just gonna get out of here, ok? They'll leave when they're ready to." Police cannot be subjective in enforcing laws. They cannot choose which laws to enforce and which ones they can't. That would be unjust for all citizens. Remember this was the reason for domestic violence laws, "Hey wife, your husband just slapped your face and since you're drunk it's just a fight and we're gonna leave". That doesn't work. It is unjust for society for any police force to be individually subjective in enforcing law.

    Protestors take a risk and they should know darn well what those risks are for civil disobedience. This is what America is all about and what makes it great. Either you stand your ground and disobey and get pepper sprayed or you leave and don't and risk your message not getting through to the masses. Pick one but don't make villains out of any party. Because neither are.

    Whatever the police are doing, it is certainly not illegal

    Police uphold the law

    If I were in person I could get your intent but I'm not. Are you being facetious?

    Do people have common sense anymore?
