Recall the cop who casually hosed students with pepper spray on the UC Davis campus?
UCD Police Lieutenant John Pike
As my friend Bob pointed out, this cop has become a meme! Click on this link: http://peppersprayingcop.tumblr.com/ THEN Google “pepper spraying cop” and you’ll see many more art pieces like this. It’s all over the web!

Thanks to Ashton B for submitting this. It sounds like we came close to our very own school shooting at UC Davis.
Apparently the term “terrorist threat” is not the legal term used in California. It’s actually referred to as a “criminal threat.” Channel 10 used the inaccurate term simply to excite the public, which seems somewhat irresponsible in my opinion.
California Penal Code – Section 422-422.4 :: Title 11.5. Criminal Threats
