A former UC Davis police officer whose pepper-spraying of protesters gained worldwide notice thanks to a viral video has been awarded more than $38,000 in workers’ compensation from the university for suffering he experienced after the incident.
Pike was suspended with pay afterward. According to a database of state worker salaries, he earned $119,067 in 2011, the last year for which figures are available.
More than 17,000 angry or threatening e-mails, 10,000 text messages and hundreds of letters were sent to Pike after the video went viral, according to the police union.
The item further notes that the protestors this jackass pepper-sprayed were collectively awarded $1 million dollars. If my maths are correct the people at the bloody end of the baton each received (pre-legal fees) $27.7 thousand dollars. That would be $10K less than the fucking security guard. Said individual, by the by, making $100K+ a fucking year!?!
Who knew Skynet/The Matrix paid so well? Bet he pulls chicks left and right, too, huh? 1
