Today In No Shit, Sherlock News, Pt. 1: A task force convened by the University of California, Davis concluded that campus police (including Lt. John Pike, the asshole pictured above in the greatest asshole move since ever) shouldn’t have used pepper spray against student protesters last November. It’s unclear if the report also makes the same conclusion regarding violence used against UC Davis students.
Today In No Shit, Sherlock News, Pt. 2: Campus police sued to prevent the report’s public release. As a result, the release was delayed for weeks; the officers’ names have been removed from the final report because waaaaaaah, we’re cops, why the fuck should we be held accountable even if one of our members was caught on film and video doing wrong?
Is an apology forthcoming? Doubt it.
