Hope the guy got sacked over it too.
Lt. John Pike, the officer who injured the protesters during a peaceful demonstration that was caught on tape and took the Internet by storm, was placed on paid administrative leave for several months after the November 18, 2011 sit-in on the Davis campus. Student and alumni had gathered at the school to protest rising tuition fees.
The internal affairs investigation alone into Lt. Pike’s actions cost the university $230,256.73, the Bee reports.

Have you seen the whole video? The guard asked them to disperse, very calmly. He walked by and told each and every one of them he would have to pepper spray them if they didn't disperse. All of them said yes they understood that they would get sprayed. He sprayed them.
Shoot I'll get pepper sprayed for $30 grand too!
