Lt. Pike no longer at UCDPD

As of today, Lt. John Pike does not work for the UC Davis Police Department anymore. Lt. John Pike became famous after using bright orange pepper spray on disobedient, but unarmed UC Davis students during a protest at the Quad. The manner at which he held the 1 gallon pepper spray tank and the nonchalance he sprayed the pepper spray in the students faces while many other students stood around the event and recorded it on their cell phones.

This not only made UC Davis front page news all around the world, it also made Lt. Pike an internet meme.

    Does anyone know if there are any planned events related to the anniversary of the November 18th pepper-spray incident?
