Filmed spraying a row of seated protesters, John Pike filed a lawsuit claiming anxiety and depression after video outrage

A former University of California Davis police officer who pepper-sprayed a group of Occupy protesters has reached a $38,000 settlement in a workman's compensation case against the school.

John Pike, who was filmed discharging pepper spray at a line of seated demonstrators in a video that was watched around the world, received the compensation last week.

The Davis Enterprise reported that Pike, 40, had suffered depression and anxiety brought on by death threats to him and his family. The threats followed the 18 November 2011 protest, the newspaper reported.

A judge approved the $38,059 workers' compensation award between Pike and UC Davis on 16 October.

Pike was placed on paid administrative leave after the incident and was fired eight months later in July 2012 – although an internal investigation actually found he had acted appropriately.

$38K can buy you a lot of Hippie-spray!! So pepper spray is the next reasonable level of force against people sitting down?

38k is peanuts. He was fired and will receive retirement.

I posted this (along with my opinion on this prick) over at sksboards.com

Apparently half the mods are cops and don't like "mean spirited posts".

$121k salary for policing a liberal California college campus that most likely only experiences the minor crimes of theft, underage drinking and marijuana use? Wow!
