Video: Students respond to UC Davis pepper spray incident

Chances are you've seen part of this video from the pepper spraying incident at UC Davis last week. The police's casual shaking of the spray can, the way he strolled through and shot directly at the students' faces while they were sitting ... surely an appalling sight. But keep watching ... keep watching ... because the way the students deal with this violation is really amazing. Listen to the chants and the "mic check" and watch how they herd the cops -- in riot gear and with guns pointed -- peacefully off campus.
