Pepper Spraying Cop Gets Photoshopped


Last Friday, news broke out that U.C. Davis campus police pepper-sprayed passive, non-violent student protesters. (The students were part of the Occupy Wall Street movement on campus.) The videos shot of the scene showed a policeman, Lt. John Pike, walking up to the protesters, pulling out his pepper spray and then dousing them at close range. As expected, over the weekend, the incident went viral.

Though two police officers have been suspended pending an investigation, the Internet found a way to shame Lt. Pike for his actions. An accompanying Tumblr blog called Pepper Spraying Cop has now sprung up. (Who could forget a similar meme, the London looters?) Watch as Lt. Pike defaces true works of art!

As the blog states, “Little did we know that Pepper Spraying Cop has cracked down on so many famous moments in history!! This Tumblr will help document the long pepper spraying arm of this officer of the law!”
