UC Davis cop off the force

The cop who used excessive force on peaceful UC Davis students no longer works for the force:

A UC Davis official confirmed Tuesday night to KOVR-TV that Lt. John Pike separated from the university’s police force Tuesday. The university declined to comment further, citing privacy concerns.

When reached by The Sacramento Bee, Pike declined to comment.

The 39-year-old Pike had been on paid leave since the incident last November when video images showed him and another officer spraying demonstrators who were seated on a sidewalk and refused police orders to disperse during an Occupy protest.

It looks like everyone took a step back, let things calm down, and cool heads prevailed.
