UC Davis Students Sue After Being Pepper-Sprayed In the Face {Video}

admin Feb 23 12 1 Comment

Ten U.C. Davis students were arrested and two more hospitalized after being pepper sprayed by campus police during a protest last November. The students have now decided to sue the school and the police officers will now face a federal lawsuit.

Nineteen students and alumni at the University of California, Davis filed the complaint in U.S. District Court in Sacramento on Tuesday.

The lawsuit is the latest fallout from the Nov. 18 incident, when campus police pepper-sprayed sitting protesters who had set up an Occupy camp. Widely viewed online videos of the incident generated national outrage and calls for the chancellor’s resignation. {Watch Video Below}

The lawsuit claims the university violated the demonstrators’ constitutional rights and seeks campus policies to prevent similar responses to non-violent protests, as well as unspecified damages.

UC Davis officials declined to comment Wednesday because they had not seen the lawsuit.
