UC Davis faculty association calls on Chancellor Katehi to resign

The faculty association at the UC Davis has called on Chancellor Katehi to resign after university police pepper-sprayed students, in the face, for staging a peaceful sit-in.

The university chancellor is either not in control of the situation, and should resign, or she approves of what can only be described as gratuitous violence against kids staging a peaceful sit in, and she should resign. This isn’t leadership. It’s thuggery. And it has no place in this country. Cops aren’t permitted to pepper spray students in the face for simply staging a peaceful sit-in. You arrest them if you have to, but you don’t pepper spray them for just sitting there.
