And I can’t begin to describe how angry this makes me:
What the cops did to those kids is unspeakably un-American. And what the students did in response is America at its best.
I’ll have more to say about this later, when I’ve stopped trembling and I can think. In the meantime, go read MaryAnn Johanson’s thoughts on the matter, and Xeni Jardin’s post at Boing Boing, which offers lots of relevant links, including to an assistant professor’s impassioned letter calling for the UC Davis chancellor’s resignation. Andrew Sullivan also offers some thoughts and links to a HuffPo article with more details.
