The pepper spray incident was just awful.

We all should be stunned at the students for protesting at Davis rather than in Sacramento.

They are protesting OUT COMES. They should be on the Capitol steps screaming at the Gov Brown and the Democratic Legislators for shoveling never ending billions of our State scarce dollars at the Pub Emp Unions in return for campaign support at the direct expense of every one and everything else in the State.

These are supposed to be our smart kids. Yet they aren't protesting the ROOT CAUSE of our State's financial meltdown. Their own Parents SCREWED them each and every time they voted for the Union Operatives who pretend to be "democrats" at election time in our State.

Since: Apr 11

Re: UC Davis protectors...
A very weak attempt to gain some very cheap "street cred" to impress future grandkids. Way too clean. No joints hanging out of your mouths. And I didn't see one chick show off her tits. If fact, they were wearing bras! What in Gods name is this world coming to if today's students can't put on an effective protest. Didn't we teach you anything from the 60's?...UTTER FAILURE I'm moving to the middle east where demonstrators take some lead. God help you losers.

I have it on good authority Chan. Katehi was cheering, jumping up & down and "fist pumping" like a rock star as she reviewed the pepper spray video with her staff. She said she would put her "game face" on for a day or so and have the gullible UC Davis student body singing Kum Ba Ya in unison with her with in a week. Then, she would go in front of the board of trustees to get a raise for her successful handling of this weak attempt at a protest. She is one sharp chick. My money is on her pulling it off.
