U.S. News - 30 people pepper-sprayed at Santa Monica College course fees protest

U.S. News - 30 people pepper-sprayed at Santa Monica College course fees protest

A serious and persistent problem with police is that with little real-world accountability they are able to take advantage of what they are allowed to do under extreme circumstances and apply it toward young people or otherwise everyday people not doing anything extreme, such as protesting. If you're stressed out, find a new job. Don't take it out on the people who pay your salary.

"Priscillia Omon, 21, claimed a police officer fired the spray into the mouths and eyes of people standing arm's length away, NBC Los Angeles reported. She said a family, including a 4 year old, were in the crowd when the officer used the pepper spray."
