: What kind of person would to that to a fellow human being that was doing no harm at all? Is he some kind of evil monster? How does he sleep at night?
He IS a monster, but he is not alone. Is it simply the way the police do things in America now. Those who are in charge tell the police what to do and they do it. No questions asked. No one is allowed to do anything that might upset the status quo. Pepper spraying students who are just sitting on the grass? Why not? The students didn't follow orders to not sit on the grass, therefore they are criminals. Quick and strong aggression is the way the police are now trained to deal with anyone who does follow their orders. The pepper sprayer was just following orders. He must follow orders or be an outcast among his peers. Therefore, yes, he is a monster. He is a monster created by the system, a system of ever growing police power and systematic oppression of dissent. The police are no longer servants of the people. They now see themselves like lions tamers who have to use quick and aggressive force to keep us troublesome animals in line.
: : Would police pepper spray students who are quietly and peacefully sitting on the grass to express their right to free speech and then arrest them for "resisting arrest" (a felony)? Watch and see.

: : Warning: If you are at all a sympathetic person, this video is hard to watch. If you can imagine yourself (or your child) sitting on the grass on your own college campus on a sunny day, this video is hard to watch. If you think Americans have the right to freely express their opinions in a peaceful way, this video is hard to watch.
