UC Davis Students Protest Chancellor

A day after police were caught on video pepper-spraying what seemed to be peaceful "Occupy" demonstrators sitting on the ground at the campus of the University of California, Davis—officers claimed they were "surrounded" by the protesters—another large crowd of students gathered again, this time to interrupt the university chancellor’s press conference. Chancellor Linda Katehi declined to comment on the pepper-spray incident, and then claimed that she felt threatened and trapped inside her office building. Protesters waited outside, chanting "We are peaceful" and "Just walk home," so after a few hours Katehi left to go to her car—in an eerily silent walk of shame. Katehi said she will address the students on Monday.
