Oh I'm picking out a thermos for you // not an ordinary thermos for you // but the extra best thermos you can buy // with vinyl and stripes and a cup built right in // I'm picking out a thermos for you // and maybe a barometer too // and what else can I buy // so on me you'll rely // a rear end thermometer too

OWS Occupy UC Davis pepper spray Lt. John Pike police brutality abuse of power peaceful assembly right to free speech protest This is history right here.

These are the faces of the Occupy movement at UC Davis.  Literally covered in pepper spray.

Is this what our public servants are getting paid for?  To respond to a peaceful assembly with violence and bodily harm perpetrated against the very citizens they are supposed to serve and protect?

Say what you will about the OWS protests, but this type of response is 100% totally, completely and absolutely unacceptable.

Is this what we want our history to look like?
