UC Davis Chancellor: Police Were Told Not To Use Force

The campus of the University of California, Davis continues to roil after the widely-viewed video of campus police pepper-spraying Occupy activists who were peacefully protesting last week.

In an interview with the Sacramento Bee, UC Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi insists the school’s police department defied her orders last week that police should peacefully remove students from their protest site.

Meanwhile, investigations of what went wrong are piling up and the UC Davis student government voted Tuesday to condemn the use of pepper spray on student protesters. They also called for Chancellor Katehi to resign if reforms aren’t forthcoming. Protestors at Occupy UC Davis have re-established their tent site and they passed a vote of no confidence in Katehi.
