John Pike, Accused Pepper-Spraying UC Davis Cop, Targeted by Anonymous

Categories: Occupy
The shadowy online "hacktivist" group known for encouraging the Occupy Wall Street Movement has published the personal contact information of Lt. John Pike, the UC Davis cop who was allegedly recorded pepper-spraying a group of unarmed UC Davis protesters last week.

A video that claims to be the work of Anonymous was posted on YouTube, along with Pike's phone number, address, and e-mail. True to form, the group maintained its shady presence as it delivered an eerie warning to Pike in an artificial voice, calling him a coward and a bully, and claiming he violated California law when he pepper-sprayed protesters during a peaceful demonstration on Friday.

According to the video:
"Everyone can see these were unarmed, nonviolent protesters who were all in a sit-in, which basically means you sit down as a group as a form of protest. The use of pepper spray and violence is never accepted, especially when used against nonviolent protesters who are standing up for their rights. We also warn you that if you or the rest of the UCD police continue to use violence on peaceful protesters, more consequences shall follow. We are Anonymous, we do not forgive, we do not forget."
The video came after university officials announced yesterday that UC Davis' police chief, Annette Spicuzza, was suspended after videos of the two UCDPD officers callously dousing sitting students in the face, went viral on the Internet. Both officers -- who have not yet been identified by the university -- were placed on administrative leave.

The UC Davis police shouldn't have done this.  Horrible idea, imo.  Violence, or the encouragement of it, is always to be condemned.

To lt pike, you should not be afraid, you are a cop, have a gun, use it against this terroristic economic saboteurs. They are trying to spread fear to peaceful loving citizens. I wish somebody will start a movement against these anarchist Occupiers. Let us go and fight them. Defend our democratic way of life and defend our Laws. Let us run them over. We are the true 99% not them, wake up people of America. They are just trying to use ignorant people to make their own way to being rich themselves. Nowmthey are trying to put up a credit union, ha, ha,

you don't like that he pepper sprays innocent people (temporary effect, though quite painful), but you want to use physical violence and murder him (permanent effect, quite painful to many people)?  Come on man!  Get some of the humanity you say you want others to have!

So if he can't hide, he can't show his face in public right? And if he can't show his face in public he can't work right? Let's make this happen people.

bravo anonymous. Pike is a disgrace and symbolises the worst kind of people that get attracted to these kind of jobs- people that don't care about upholding the law for the benefit of all. Rather pathetic former school bullies with a badge, this loser deserves to be pestered every waking moment until he goes and lives in the wood were he can no longer inflict harm on others.

"Lt. John Pike, the UC Davis cop who was allegedly recorded pepper-spraying a group of unarmed UC Davis protesters". 

Does the author of this article know what the word "allegedly" means?

Jason
Jason

He obviously did do that, but the alleged part is in deference to the great American tradition of Innocent until proven guilty.  I realize that doesn't apply to private citizens opinion forming about people, but I take this to simply be respectful deference.

Yes, it means that it may have been Pike or it may have been some other guy. He is allegedly the guy in the photos / videos. You have me actually defending Erin Sherbert's journalism, which means your comment must be one of the most thoughtless ever.

Know what else is wrong? Putting innovent citizens health and rights at risk by callously ignoring the laws those people are paying you to protect. Pike deserves to be held accountable, the department will not fire him. Justice has been served.

His information's been out. Anonymous probably called him up the day that event happened.

Must be a slow news day.

Let's see that overweight bully take off his helmet, lay down his arms and face somebody one to one - not skinny unarmed kids who are submissively sitting down, but some real criminal, maybe some felon who has served two years in the pen and worked out every day and has a "prisoner torso." Let's see what a hero Pike can be when he faces someone who can fight back and will do so.
