The casual pepper-spraying cop meme

Dana linked a picture of a campus cop by the name of John Pike casually spraying a line of seated Occupy Wall Street protesters with pepper-spray. This video went viral. Then, like most viral things do once they reach a certain level of critical mass, it mutated. In some cases rather drastically. Here’s some pictures I’ve found around the intertubes, proving that there’s a lighter side to a violent fuckwit attacking peaceful protesters with damaging “non-violent weaponry”. Images link to the sources.

    Closest I could find. Should be easily fixed by shopping a pepper spray canister into the cop’s left hand.

    Bahaha, George, that one is epic. Did Jeremy make it, or is he just hosting it? Why can I not find it linked on his blog?
