    A great piece over at The Atlantic, giving the perspective that to vilify only John Pike and the UC Davis administration is to ignore the institutional problems that exist in Law Enforcement offices across the nation. The article talks about how the actions that John Pike took were made possible and demanded by a police mindset that seeks to shut down any “disorderly” conduct that breaks the “peaceful” norm Americans are accustomed to feeling. Again, the militarization of Law Enforcement is a big issue and is touched on in this article as well.

    I really want to push this point, because I get the feeling that there is a lot of misinformation about the effects and potency of pepper spray. That it is purportedly totally safe and that the effect wears off, justifying its use. It’s not.
