Petition Closed

Terminate Immediately The Employment of UC Davis PD: Lieutenant John Pike

This is a joint effort between Occupy Police & Occupy Marines. We are petitioning both, the California State Government and the US Federal Government in an attempt to have Lieutenant John Pike's Employment with the UC Davis Police Department, terminated once this petition receives it's 10,000th signature. Lt. Pike showed a lack of both restraint and crowd control knowledge when he blatantly sprayed 11 UC Davis students in the face at point blank range with pepper spray. These students were fully within their constitutional rights being exactly where and as they were, when Lt Pike in an attempt to remove them; blatantly and nonchalantly sprayed them in the face with pepper spray. We feel that this action could have been avoided had properly trained officers been on site, furthermore, and in addition to the latter, we feel that the visible lack of remorse shown in both Lt. Pike's stride and nonchalant facial expression while delivering projectile acid directly to the faces of 11 students is grounds for a full psychological evaluation, we are requesting this evaluation be executed immediately and prior to our termination request. We ask for the results of this evaluation to be made public. Results should in no way add gravity to this petitions request for Lt. Pike's termination from the UC Davis Police Department.

 In addition, to Lt. Pike's employment termination, and full psychological evaluation, we request a full federal investigation into the UC Davis Police Department. We the undersigned and citizens of America feel adequate leadership is/was not present, and is/was needed at UC Davis PD. We ask you to investigate their leadership, and release publicly any findings regarding your investigation -

We The Undersigned Citizens of the Unted States of America and abroad
