The incident occurred Nov. 18, 2011, when Occupy demonstrators ignored orders to leave the UC Davis campus and university police started spewing pepper spray into the crowd. The police response prompted massive protests on campus, which gained national media attention and ignited a debate about police brutality and use of excessive force against peaceful protesters.

If protesters are obstructing access or gathering outside of designated areas I say hit them with pepper spray. If you want to be part of a peaceful protest it better not inconvenience me or deny me my access to needed services or I might spraty them myself.
I don't support the whitewashing of the internet, but I support UC-Davis's actions.

Your being "inconvenienced" is NOT more important than their Constitutional right to protest.
