RT reports that a 1 million dollar settlement has been reached in the case of the UC Davis students who were pepper sprayed, which is 30,000 dollars per plaintiff.


The Nolo County D.A.'s office recently let the pepper spraying cop walk, finding no criminal conduct, and by reasoning that seemed to shockingly imply that police may spray non-violent protesters at point blank range in the face if their arms are linked, rather than not linked.

Linking arms is, of course, customary at non-violent protests and demonstrations, with a proud history and tradition in the U.S.A.
