UC Davis ‘Pepper Spray’ Cop Claims He Is The Victim Of ‘Psychiatric Injury’
Psychologists and mental health clinicianss refer to this as “projection“:
The former police officer who pepper-sprayed students during an Occupy protest at the University of California, Davis is appealing for worker’s compensation, claiming he suffered psychiatric injury from the 2011 confrontation.
John Pike has a settlement conference set for Aug. 13 in Sacramento, according to the state Department of Industrial Relations’ website.
Pike was fired in July 2012, eight months after a task force investigation found that his action was unwarranted.
Online videos of him and another officer casually dousing demonstrators with pepper spray went viral, sparking outrage at UC Davis leaders. The images became a rallying symbol for the Occupy Wall Street movement.
