Please contact the UC Davis ‘Police’ Department to express your outrage at the attack upon unarmed students (of course “baggers” will want to applaud the action).
Kindly request that UC Davis Police Chief Annette Spicuzza either resign immediately or fire the “officers” involved.
Feel free to adapt any or all of my note to these “protect and serve” persons.
Like many people I am disgusted by the behavior of your department upon the demonstrating students at the university. Personally, I don’t believe in 2nd chances after thuggish stunts like that.
The Chief who orchestrated this, any university authority who consented and every goon who participated should resign or be fired immediately. Of course, any sense of decency would require resignations. I doubt we can expect anything in the way of decency from cowards who attack unarmed students.
Perhaps this sort of behavior will continue to be practiced in places like Tehran or Damascus. Of course it SHOULD NOT and CANNOT continue in what we like to claim is a “decent” country.
I will personally do everything I can to assure that the callous disregard you showed to the people – whose rights and safety you are sworn to protect – does not go unnoticed and unanswered and is held up as an example of how NOT to treat fellow Americans.
I hope you enjoy the well-deserved media firestorm you’re sure to get on Monday.

In yet another example of overreacting and aggressive behavior by law enforcement personnel against the “Occupy” movement, UC Davis school police pepper-sprayed and arrested non-violent student demonstrators before a shocked gathering.
No protesting students were spared from intense pepper-spray from several officers, who held the canisters close to the faces of the students, even though none resisted the officers physically.
Students were protesting the police’s decision to destroy the “Occupy UC Davis” camping area.
