After watching this video of the events at UC Davis, I can only conclude that the police are cowards and thugs. THe only lesson they’re teaching is that we can’t trust them, and they’re not on the people’s side.
There is something worse, though. Ann Coulter has weighed in on the OWS movement, and she has an answer for UC Davis:
Remember the lesson from my book: It just took a few shootings at Kent State to shut that down for good.
Without any hint that the irony registered, she also made this comment.
I guess it’s fun to destroy stuff. As they found out during the French Revolution, it’s lots of fun to just start randomly murdering people – this is the way it always is with mobs.
Coulter is the one advocating random murder. She is a creature beyond the pale: I would hope the media would finally see the light and ostracize her, but I don’t expect it to happen. Especially in a Breitbartian world where eliminationist rhetoric is something to be giggled over.

(NOTE: As is usual when I mention Coulter, if you can’t focus on the hate and stupidity in her words, and instead dump a load of sexist, misogynist comments here, I will delete your words and in extreme cases will ban you.)
