‘Pepper Spray Cop’ Gets $38K Workers Comp Payout

peppersprayingcoptumblrcom-image.nI hope that you’ll be able to rest easy tonight knowing that at least one of the worlds injustices has been addressed: Poor old pepper spray cop John Pike has been given a $38,000 workers comp payout. Captain Capsecum claims that he has suffered anxiety and depression since the incident.

Via Raw Story:

Former police Lt. John Pike was awarded the settlement Oct. 16 from the University of California Davis by the state Division of Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.

The 40-year-old Pike was fired by the university after dousing protesters for about 15 seconds Nov. 18, 2011, during an Occupy Wall Street demonstration against tuition increases.

The incident was captured in a widely circulated video.

Davis claims he suffered depression and anxiety after he and his family received death threats related to the incident.

    I’m going to try and be a bigger douche bag since apparently you get paid for it now

  2. Sure, $38,000 is a lot of money, but I like to think that we’ve heaped at least $100,000 worth of scorn upon him. So far.

    only $38K?
    being a low level stooge pays so little

    Aw, poor fella. Take a vacation and feel better, pal.

      your face says it all carrot
      happiness combined with “tremble, mortals, and despair”
      it’s like one wisp
      and many wisps may surround Archimonde

      • I’d like to issue a personal challenge to you, to say something that is actually comprehensible, on the subject of your choice.

          very well

          i had proven just the other day, 3 or 4 days ago in fact, that if one has a unit tetrahedral – that is a shape with four points each at a distance of “one” from each other – that there cannot be a fifth point that is at integer distance from each and every tetrahedral point. it is quite impossible without cheating or “exterior modulator technology that does silly stuff past infinity or stuff like teleporting or translocation”. this finding coincides in an as yet unseen way with graph genus – four points may be drawn as a clique without crossing lines on any regular plane or the face of any regular sphere … but five points cannot be drawn on such and require donuts.

          • well great
            try to do it more often
            and bring donuts next time

            although you have taken a relatively simple fact from three dimensional geometry and cluttered it up with what I can only conclude is a deliberate attempt to make it sound more complicated than it is and defeat readers attempts to understand your twisted ass.

            well considering your conclusion contradicts your axiom i’d say you’re clueless, but the facts speak for themselves. you know neither me nor yourself. clearly logic is too much to manage for people, which is again an obvious statement. it’s a thing that any one of such persons would have to personally change in their life. no one measures their work according to your word … is something people seem to forget. in many ways, actually.

            hope you had fun, soda can

          • get some therapy

          • You can’t take the wind from Simon’s sails. He doesn’t need wind. Simon operates in the beyond, where many dare not tread. Or he’s an AI. It’s been said that he couldn’t possibly be an AI, because Simon breaks the rules. Whatever that means. I am still skeptical, but accept Simon.

          • not to worry. I’m not going to make a project out of it. It is obvious that there is some kind of high octane mind behind it all. I just thought he might drop the smokescreen of contrived incoherence and actually say something.

          • Too bad he didn’t bring any donuts.

    I’ll just leave this here.

    The single most bullshit workman’s comp claim of all time.

  7. It’s been a while… remind me…. was he ordered by above authority to pepper spray them specifically? or was it his own decision? not that either one makes it ok…. but it could be the college buying him off….

  8. fuck that bitch – glad to have helped right the wrong that was his official license to that orange trigger
