    UC Davis released a report saying that campus police should not have used pepper spray to clear out an Occupy protest on November 18 of last year. The use of such force “should and could have been prevented,” the report said. Police said that they felt trapped by the protesters and used the pepper spray to get away from them. But the report said, “On balance, there is little basis supporting Lt. Pike’s belief that he was trapped by the protesters or that his officers were prevented from leaving the Quad. Further, there is little evidence that any protesters attempted to use violence against the police.”
