I 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.
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.
