UC Davis to Pay Pepper-Spray Bills

The University of California, Davis, is trying to make amends for the treatment of Occupy protesters last week, dropping charges against 10 people who were arrested and paying the medical expenses of students who were pepper-sprayed. The university also tapped Bill Bratton, former head of the Los Angeles, Boston, and New York police departments, to head an advisory panel looking into the incident. Video of a campus police officer casually pepper-spraying seated protesters prompted calls for chancellor Linda Katehi’s resignation.
