Lt. John Pike, the cold-hearted, cop who casually sprayed peaceful sitting students at U.C. Davis has deservedly become an internet laughing-stock – the iconic image of an authoritarian d*ck-head who enjoys his work. The whole world is not only watching…he’s become a global joke. Welcome to the wonderful world of mocking evil!
Check out these amusing Photoshop images…
And, have you seen the Amazon.com “reviews” of the Pepper Spray used by Lt. John Pike? Hundreds of hilarious comments…here’s one:
Accept no substitutes when casually repressing students, November 21, 2011
D-bag of Liberty
This review is from: Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream, 1.3% Red Band/1.3% Blue Band Pepper Spray (Misc.)
Whenever I need to breezily inflict discipline on unruly citizens, I know I can trust Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream, 1.3% Red Band/1.3% Blue Band Pepper Spray to get the job done! The power of reason is no match for Defense Technology’s superior repression power. When I reach for my can of Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream, 1.3% Red Band/1.3% Blue Band Pepper Spray, I know that even the mighty First Amendment doesn’t stand a chance against its many scovil units of civil rights suppression.
When I feel threatened by students, no matter how unarmed, peaceful and seated they may be, I know that Defense Technology 56895 MK-9 Stream, 1.3% Red Band/1.3% Blue Band Pepper Spray has got my back as I casually spray away at point blank range.
It really is the Cadillac of citizen repression technology.
PS) On Black Friday, The high holy day of corporate America, a shopper was inspired by Lt. Pike: “In California, a woman pepper-sprayed fellow Wal-Mart shoppers, apparently to keep them from grabbing an Xbox she wanted.”
UPDATE:Of course, there is a lawsuit brewing – people who pay to attend a college and exercise their constitutional rights to peaceful protest should not be pepper-sprayed by cops who are supposedly there to protect them. It will be interesting to see if John Pike will have to pay damages personally, or if the University will also have to pay, being that the Chancellor allegedly has condoned violence against the students. And the expected huge amount that the students will be paid will bring a smile to all our faces — except perhaps for John’s.
UPDATE 2: There’s now a good article on the PSC meme at truthout
