Pepper-spraying pig goes global

Updated below (on Tuesday, November 22, 2011)

So after his fascistic actions on Friday, already University of California at Davis Police Lt. John Pike is an Internet sensation, now known around the world as the “Pepper-Spraying Cop.” I would call him the “Pepper-Spraying Pot-Bellied Pig,” but “Pepper-Spraying Cop” is more succinct.

Here are some images from the growing collection at http://peppersprayingcop.tumblr.com/:

“Phew! I am so glad we changed the mind of that grouchy guy who was indiscriminately pissing on our parade! Now we can have our gathering without fear of some random jerkAAUAUUAHAHASHSGAHAGAGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

Poor Cindy Lou! (Seasonal, though.)

“Thank you lord Jesus for taking time out of your busy day to allow me to throw a football around and run around on grass and have super loads of fun. I know for a fact that every time I throw the football real good its because you are personally behind it. I am just that special. Its OK, you can admit it. Now just let me get down on this grass for a bit longer while IAUUAHAUAUUAHAGAGAHAGAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

I never liked the sanctimonious Tim Tebow. The Pepper-Spraying Cop would never pepper-spray someone like Tim Tebow, though. I mean, Tebow is a right-wing white male.

“You know what my least favorite movie is? Rocky III. Now I know what you’re going to say. ‘Oh its because of Mr T’s character’s name, right?’ WRONG. Its because the narrative fell apart in the second act and just became so trite and deliberately oblivious to the true nature of the Rocky Balboa canonAAAUUAUAUUAAAUAUAAAGGAGAGGHHHHHHH”

PETA will be on it.

“We are a peaceful protest! We are non-violent! Well… OK so maybe there was a little violence. But come onAAUUAUUAUAHAHAGAGGAGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

Well, he is one of our stormtroopers

“It’s eleventy four o’clock, Mr. Frodo! Well past time for second breakfast. Shall we cook up some nice coneys and carve up an apple or two? I think that we might be best served setting up a cook fire right over thereAAAUAAAAGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

He always plays the villain…

“This is Charlie Niner Foxtrot. I know our orders were about some big awful primate trying to occupy the Empire State Building, but all I see isAAYUUUUAHAUHAGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

It was sad when King Kong died.

“God, finally the shade hits us. All these petticoats and overcoats and shit are cooking me like a game hen. I can actually relax now and have me a nice park sitAAAAUAUAUAAAGAGAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

Hey, he asked her to move.

“Ok, we went ahead and brought you our tired, our poor and our huddled masses. I know its April Fools day and everything, but we really kind of yearn to breathe freeAAUAUUAUAGHGAUAAGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

A little more political. (And pretty much what our liberty has come to.)

“Worst. Day. Ever. I just want to get to my daughter’s birthday party. That’s all. That’s IT. And now this bullshit. Just one more fucking thing and I am going to lose itAAAUAUAUAAAGAGAGAGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

Wait — that’s a real photo, isn’t it?

“….”

And that one, too?

“God DAMN its good to be on top. Swimming in babes, limitless power.. is that a Whataburger over there? I gotta tell the driver to make a pit stopAAAUAUAUAAAGAGAAGAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

The mystery is finally solved…

“OK. Let’s run down how this day sucks. I get dragged to some weird place full of people who keep yelling about some shit that is NOT Teletubbies. I got a hot deuce in my diapey. My mom just handed me over to this creepy old hillbilly guy. What nextAAUAUAUAAAAAUAUAAGAGGGGHHHHHH”

Bush always was overprotected.

“Look who just won the raffle for a Dairy Queen tokenAAAUAUSAHSHAUASHFGGGGHHHHHHHHH”

Jesus suffered a lot on his way to the cross.

“If I could just reach that god damn smoke alarm button. Whose idea was it anyway to put these in this fucking chapelAAAAUAUAAHAGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

Even God isn’t safe.

This one, I think, is my favorite, for its political content (and its technical quality):

“Listen, guys. I’m just gonna sit here until we can work this system out so it benefits everybody, not just the fat catsAAAUUAUAUAUAGAGAGGAGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

And the first runner-up (this one via Joe. My. God.):

My third runner-up (from Washington Post blog).

If I knew PhotoShop, I think that I’d do one of the “Pepper-Spraying Cop” as WALL-E floating around in outer space, using his pepper-spray canister to propel himself. (Would he have to hit Eva in the face with his pepper spray, though?)

On a serious note, Lt. Pig — er, Pike — has been placed on administrative leave, as has the UC Davis Police chief. Hopefully they will get more than a slap on the wrist. Hopefully, they will be sued and lose.

In other news, First Lady Michelle Obama was booed at her appearance yesterday at a NASCAR event — because her appearance delayed their traditional cross-burning. (Seriously, though, even uber-dipshit George W. Bush knew to appear only before receptive — that is, wingnutty — audiences.)

Update (Tuesday, November 22, 2011): Here are more from http://peppersprayingcop.tumblr.com/. I love this shit, and I think it’s great that one 1-percent-protecting cop’s appalling, Nazi-like behavior against non-aggressive young people can be turned into humor. That is, I think, one of the strengths of the left: our ability to turn the right wing’s most appalling actions into humor. (Indeed, the wingnuts’ rare attempts at humor are pathetic.)

“Now see here, Mr. Potter. You’re just a greedy old man is what you are. You’re the 1%. That’s right, I said it, the 1%! If you don’t want to help me out with the Building & Loan then we’re just going to stand around in town square with some signs and laptops. You’ll see! We’ll fix you good! You’re gonna see it all over the evening news, and there’s nothing you can do about itAUUAUHAHHAGHAGAHAGHHHHHHHHHH”

It’s a wonderful life, indeed.

“This is gonna be the greatest thing ever. People are gonna read all kinds of horse shit into this photo and you know what? We’re just going to laugh and laugh and laugh. ‘Oh why is Paul out of his shoes? Why is George in blue jeans? Why is John in white? Why is that bug halfway up the curb? Fucking idiots. People are so dumbAUUAHAGAHAUAGHAGAHGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

“Here at the University Of Austria we like to have beautiful musical times whilst sitting in the park! Sing along, everybody, and let us rejoice in the wonder of some traditional folk songsAUAUAUHAGAHAGAHAGAHHGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

Damn hippies deserve it!

This one might be my new favorite:

“The chances of me being a victim of police brutality here are so low from a statistical standpoint. There are so many people in this park right now, and I am so blended in that singling me out for a beating or pepper spray would be completely improbableAUUAUHAHGAHAGHAGAHAGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

Waldo clearly was resisting.

    the porcine scumbag pike—-where is he now?

    • Robert

      As far as I know, Lt. Pig still resides in Roseville, California, which is a suburb of Sacramento (as is Davis, California, where the University of California at Davis is located).

      The Davis Enterprise reported on October, 24, 2013:

      “The former [UC Davis] campus cop seen in a viral video pepper-spraying student protesters will receive workers’ compensation totaling $38,056.

      “John Pike, 40, of Roseville, reportedly suffered depression and anxiety brought on by death threats he and his family received after the Nov. 18, 2011, confrontation at an Occupy UC Davis encampment.

      “Administrative Law Judge Harter approved the settlement agreement between Pike and the University of California on Oct. 16[, 2013]. …

      “Richard Lieberman, a Piedmont psychiatrist acting as the agreed-upon expert, rated Pike’s disability as ‘moderate,’ according to a Jan. 5 psychiatric report released by the state Department of Industrial Relations in response to a public records request.

      “Pike faced ‘continuing and significant internal and external stress with respect to resolving and solving the significant emotional upheavals that have occurred’ in his life and had not shown evidence of substantial improvement, concluded Lieberman, who spoke with Pike twice in 2012.

      “A second psychiatrist, Bernard Bauer of San Francisco, blindly scored Pike’s responses on a battery of psychological tests.

      “Now, Pike will be paid more money than those he pepper-sprayed.

      “In January, UCD agreed to pay $1 million to settle a federal suit. Twenty-one plaintiffs who were sprayed or arrested were to receive $30,000 each. Another 15 who also had claims approved were to be paid $6,666 apiece.

      “Chief Matt Carmichael fired Pike in July 2012, following eight months of paid administrative leave. …

      “At the time of his psychiatric evaluation, Pike was appealing his termination. UCD has not rehired him.

      “The former Marine will receive retirement benefits for his 11 years of campus employment. He was being paid an annual salary of $121,680 at the time he was fired. …”

      So, what happened is that Lt. Pig got to be the “victim.”

      Wingnuts who terrorize others get to be the “victims” these days.
