‘Andrew Wyeth,’ UC Davis pepper-spray edition

Monday, November 21, 2011

Lt. John Pike, the UC Davis cop whose head-on pepper-spraying of passive students huddled in protest has created a firestorm, is popping up in a slew of famous paintings as part of an Internet meme aimed at shaming him. The Washington Post has others here.

Add: Besides the two cops involved, UC Davis’ Police Chief has now also been placed on leave.

Also: The Sac Bee identifies Pike as an ex-Marine who was singled out for valor in 2007 for helping protect other officers from a scissor-wielding patient at the school’s medical center.
