Sorry libs… You can quit your squawking and take your leftie-indoctrinated butts back to class. The UC Davis pepper spray incident was standard police procedure.

On Friday a group of UC Davis students blocked the campus walkway with arms linked and started chanting, From Davis to Greece, F*ck the police! Moments later the little darlings were doused with pepper spray. This was only after several attempts by campus police to get them to move.

Of course, the liberal media only played the part where the students were sprayed down.
But after two days of leftist outrage we find out that this was standard police procedure.
This comes from MSNBC:

A law enforcement official who watched the clip called the use of force “fairly standard police procedure.”

The protest was held in support of the overall Occupy Wall Street movement and in solidarity with protesters at the University of California, Berkeley who were jabbed by police with batons on Nov. 9.

Charles J. Kelly, a former Baltimore Police Department lieutenant who wrote the department’s use of force guidelines, said pepper spray is a “compliance tool” that can be used on subjects who do not resist, and is preferable to simply lifting protesters.

“When you start picking up human bodies, you risk hurting them,” Kelly said. “Bodies don’t have handles on them.”

After reviewing the video, Kelly said he observed at least two cases of “active resistance” from protesters. In one instance, a woman pulls her arm back from an officer. In the second instance, a protester curls into a ball. Each of those actions could have warranted more force, including baton strikes and pressure-point techniques.

“What I’m looking at is fairly standard police procedure,” Kelly said.

Get back to class.
