Wszędzie jest już tak samo jak w Polsce.
Spicuzza told the Sacramento Bee () that police used the pepper spray after they were surrounded. Protesters were warned repeatedly beforehand that force would be used if they didn’t move, she said. http://bit.ly/sKoP5T
„There was no way out of that circle,” Spicuzza said. „They were cutting the officers off from their support. It’s a very volatile situation.”
The UC Davis video images, which were circulated on YouTube and widely elsewhere online, prompted immediate outrage among faculty and students, with the Davis Faculty Association saying in a letter Saturday that Katehi should resign.
„The Chancellor’s role is to enable open and free inquiry, not to suppress it,” the faculty association said in its letter.
It called Katehi’s authorization of police force a „gross failure of leadership.”
At a news conference later on Saturday, Katehi said what the video shows is „sad and really very inappropriate.” The events surrounding the protest have been hard on her personally, but she had no plans to resign, she said.
„I do not think that I have violated the policies of the institution. I have worked personally very hard to make this campus a safe campus for all,” she said.
Katehi remained in a media room for more than two hours after the news conference, eventually walking to an SUV past a silent group of students nearly three blocks long, many of them holding up signs calling for her to step down, the Sacramento Bee said.
