UC Davis Pepper Spray - What Really Happened

Here is the same video with no commentary after the intro http://youtu.be/yjXcaoEAkq4?hd=1 This video shows the events leading up to the use of pepper spray by UC Davis police officers. Occupy protesters and the media have sensationalized this story by only showing short clips of the officers spraying the students with pepper spray. This video shows in chronological order how the protesters trapped the police and demanded the release of those they had arrested before they would be allowed to leave.
【批注： 在網上驚見一段關於加大戴維斯分校（UC Davis）胡椒噴霧事件的足版短片！看後震驚，原來事實真相竟是如此！美國媒體有問題，校方沒人說明當天詳情也是問題，警察──甚至是把胡椒噴霧射向學生的那警員──無奈又無辜。
(2)在真相中呈現的學生，是一群濫用民主、行民主暴力、態度輕佻的幼稚青年。 (3) 美國的所謂佔領運動，究竟有多大的意義，以及會得到社會的多少認同？有朋友說，假如佔領行動搞得有聲有色、成熟、漸有思想深度……等等，再亂也反而表示美國有救，因為反思的力量已出現。然而，情況看來朝相反方向發展。 】
Movement is outside nation's mainstream
4:46 p.m. EST, December 3, 2011
The media have gone to great lengths to convince us that Occupy Wall Street protesters are just like the rest of us. One columnist, for example, tells us they've "struck … a nerve" with the American people. But the only thing Occupy Wall Street has struck is America's gag reflex. The movement is decidedly outside the mainstream.
Challenge Occupy Wall Street protesters to some Jeff Foxworthy-style tests and see for yourself.
You might not be the 99 percent if, for example, you defecate in places other than toilets. One New York Occupy Wall Street protester was caught on camera using a police car as a Porta-John while police have repeatedly been forced to issue warnings against public urination and defecation to protesters in Los Angeles.
Or you might not be the 99 percent, if you take time off your job to protest that you have no job. One of the principal demands of Occupy Wall Street protesters has been for jobs. Yet, according to former Bill Clinton pollster Doug Schoen, 85 percent of the Occupy protesters in New York's Zuccotti Park are currently employed.
And you probably aren't among the 99 percent if you blame Republicans alone for enriching Wall Street, banks and powerful corporations at the expense of everyone else. Both parties have done so and most Americans understand that. Even so, Democrats appear to be more culpable in recent years than Republicans.
Fifty-four percent of House Republicans voted against final passage of the Trouble Asset Relief Program legislation in 2008, while just 27 percent of Democrats voted against it. The following January, all but two Republicans in the House and all but six in the Senate voted to block $350 billion in TARP spending. That effort failed thanks to the nearly unified, pro-TARP opposition of Democrats.
Republicans also voted en masse against the $787 billion stimulus package that's provided billions of dollars to such "start-up" companies as General Electric. Not a single Republican House member and only three Republican senators voted for the legislation.
Nor might you be in the 99 percent, if you believe civil disobedience and violence are legitimate forms of political expression. According to pollster Schoen, 98 percent of those participating in the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York believe civil disobedience is an appropriate means of achieving their objectives and an astounding 31 percent support the use of violence.
You might not be the 99 percent, if you can't tell the difference between exposing people to your views and exposing yourself. Occupy Wall Street in Madison, Wis., was reportedly denied renewal of its demonstration permit due to public … um, let's call it "self-gratification." And reports of public sex at the New York protest have been rampant.
And you undoubtedly are not in the 99 percent if you blame minorities for the nation's problems. At the Occupy Wall Street protest in Zuccotti Park, one man carried a sign reading "Zionists Control Wall Street." At a similar rally in Los Angeles, occupier Patricia McAllister told Reason TV, "The Zionist Jews who are running these big banks and our Federal Reserve … need to be run out of this country."
And the New York Post reports that the American Nazi Party recently broke with its "rule against standing beside Communists" urging its members in the "pro-white" movement to join the Occupy Wall Streeters' fight against the common enemy: "Judeo-capitalist banksters."
In fact, unless you're a sex-mad, anti-social, anti-Semitic exhibitionist with an appreciation for law-breaking, Occupy Wall Street is unlikely to be your cup of tea.
