UC Davis Students versus Chancellor Katehi

Someone came here and didn’t know what this was all about.  So, on Friday the Chancellor of UC Davis had the police break up a protest on the quad.  They did so with unreasonable force, spraying protesters who were sitting down quietly in the face with pepper spray, sending two of them to the hospital.  This has gone rather viral.

Today the Chancellor held a press conference, intentionally in a space too small to allow students to attend.  The students surrounded the building and the conference was ended early apparently when students got in.  The students formed two human chains, telling the Chancellor she was free to leave if she wanted and that they were peaceful, unlike her or her officers.  She hid in the building for hours before making the protestors agree to sit down and be silent as she left.  Because she is a coward.

I am so impressed with the students at UC Davis.
