Your blog fails to mention the police action at UC Davis campus on this same day. Non-agressive student protesters were drenched with pepper spray. The use of this painful spray was questionable. The method was inexcusable.

Ms. Friedel. Unless you're an expert on police tactics and use of force policies, your opinion about the method being "inexcusable" at UC Davis is uninformed.

The students were told to move and they refused. They were warned that if they continued to ignore police orders to clear the area, they would be subject to police action. They still refused. The use of OC Spray on uncooperative suspects is authorized by most use of force policies of police departments in CA and in the US. Don't see anything wrong with what the officers did at UC Davis. Legally, they're OK.

The problem is that UC Davis and other UC police departments work for UC Regents and UC Administrators, who have NO CLUE about police tactics. They respond to politically correct ideas and complaints from students and faculty, whether they're right or not. I would never work as a police officer for educators in CA.

Ms. Friedel,
This is an LAPD blog and the report was regarding incidents in the city of LA.
