Well if this isn't an abuse of process and power I don't know what is.

A police officer who was caught on camera hosing down a group of student protesters with pepper spray for no apparent reason has filed for worker’s compensation, asking taxpayers to pay him for a “psychiatric injury” he claims to have sustained in the incident’s wake.

Officer John Pike was fired about eight months after his antics at the University of California-Davis became the subject of a viral Internet meme that saw thousands of famous photos edited to include him pepper-spraying various people and things.

He’s expected to be appearing at a settlement hearing in August, according to The Associated Press, where Pike hopes to be awarded compensation for a “psychiatric injury.”

Pike claims he received dozens of threatening messages following the pepper-spraying incident, thanks to hackers who dredged up his personal information and shared it widely.


Is this guy insane? You got Psychiatric injury because you acted like a fool and assaulted a group of students for no reason other than you wanted to show them who was boss.

You got what you deserved and no tax payer anywhere should have to pay for whatever mental anguish you had to endure because of your insanity.

Sorry Officer no more.

police officers seem harder to get rid of than professors with tenure.

even with being fired for a just reason (pepperspraying people for fun) he still may get a nice amount of cash. utterly disgusting.

Sadly we live in a litigious society... just about anyone can sue anyone for anything at all... hopefully a sharp judge tosses this out, but if history is any indication homeboy is gonna get paid...
