It is interesting to revisit, the statements made by the official in charge of riot suppression, in the light of the US Davis campus abuse of children rights to petition for social, political and economical justice in the United States, rights not only violated, but to which there are no dialogue, concessions, discussion, as if we, the citizens are not represented by anybody. The actions of the Campus police of the Uc Davis, is clear declaration of the mindset of the officials regarding the petition for justice.

UC Davis will probe use of pepper-spray on student protesters (from KTLA TV) Do you want to see police brutality? Here is one example, just click here)

From KTLA: “As indicated in various videos, the police used pepper spray against the students who were blocking the way,” she said. “The use of pepper spray as shown on the video is chilling to us all and raises many questions about how best to handle situations like this.”

Student protesters at Davis had set up an encampment in the university’s quad area earlier this month as part of the nationwide Occupy movement against economic inequality and excesses of the financial system.

Their demonstrations, which had been endorsed by a faculty association, included protests against tuition increases and what they viewed as police brutality on University of California campuses in response to recent protests.

The students had set up roughly 25 tents in a quad area, but they had been asked not to stay overnight and were told they would not be able to stay during the weekend, due to a lack of university resources, Katehi said.

Some protesters took their tents down voluntarily while others stayed. The pepper spray incident appeared to take place on Friday afternoon, when campus police moved in to forcibly evict the protesters.

Katehi said on Friday she was “saddened” by the manner in which protesters were removed from the quad, and on Saturday announced a task force of faculty, students and staff to investigate the incident.

My take on it: Economical Inequality is inequality to life. And is a fundamental human right, guaranteed by the Universal Declaration of  Human Rights.
