This is fascism.  I'm previous troll. But now I'm doing everything I can to help the occupy movement get their message across. Enough is enough.

There is a longer video where the police back away from the crowd who are chanting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmJmmnMkuEM&feature=player_embedded

One of the worst examples of abusing power that I've ever seen. He looks like he is casually spraying ants. I encourage everyone involved to email the U.C. Chancellor Linda Katehi and demand swift action or the tender of her resignation.

Nobody can watch this and not feel sympathy for peaceful students being violently abused.

If they had moved like the police asked they would not have been sprayed

Are you trying to justify assault? Assaulting people who are sitting on the ground. Wtf.
